A- Transparent amber body with a thick white head.

S- Citrus hops along with pine notes.

T- Hop-forward with the pine coming through the most at first, followed by a citrus presence and malt to balance it out.

M- Crisp, clean, refreshing with a sticky hop presence.

O- Very good hoppy, but balanced IPA.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with an off white-head that sticks around for a good amount of time.
Smells very hoppy with some citrus scents as well.
Taste is somewhat malty, yet very hoppy at the same time. Piney hops are the most prevalent taste, but it is balanced by at least a bit of a caramel maltiness. Feels very thick and full bodied in the mouth with good carbonation. Very nice.
A very good beer that should pleasae IPA fans with its bold hoppy taste.

A- Deep orange/amber color. A one finger, tinted head that fades away fast, but leaves a bunch of sticky lacing all around the glass.

S- Peaches, pineapple, grapefruit, sweet caramel, pine cones, and candied citrus peel. I don't wanna stop smelling this. Very interesting! Really sweet and fruity for an IPA.

T- Bitter hop punch melds together with sweet caramel covered citrus. Pineapple and over ripe peaches dominate more than the normal grapefruit, orange and lemon. The bright citrus is there, but it lets other flavors lead them to you instead of kicking you in the face with bitterness.

M- Really nice carbonation that fades away with the sweetness. Nice bitter hops/pine/citrus that sits in waiting to pounce on your taste buds.

O- Great IPA citrus punch, wonderful sweetness, and balance. I LOVE Victory, and I can't believe it took me this long to try this one!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: orangish, light amber color..one finger head..not so agressive of a pour..left very nice lacing on the glass

smell..orange peel, fresh cut grass, and some kind of sweetness...i don't know let's call it caramel, maybe honey

taste: pine, light grapefruit, caramel,..has a sweet malt profile but a thicker type of malt sweetness..not like the dogfish head 60 that has a sugar water sweetness which i don't like. More like a maple syrup. It's a a pleasant sweetness that adds not detracts from the experience. Nice bitter after taste which lingers..Kinda reminds of a dale's pale ale just a little better put together.

mouth: light to medium carb, syrupy but in a good way

overall: solid beer, very enjoyable stuff..up there in the top 10 percent of Ipa's that I've tried..good price, it's about 2 bucks a 6er cheaper than most high quality IPA's. As far as readily available beers go, really nice. Would recommend and buy again.
