Poured from 12oz bottle into a becker. Clear orange with visible carbonation, foamy 2 finger head that dissipates about halfway then sticks around, chunky lacing. Smell is very sweet and flowery, as well as the usual hoppy smell of an IPA. Taste is hops hops hops, then finishing off with a much crisper clean end than most IPAs. Overall a great IPA, easy to drink and great tasting. Another victory for Victory.

Dang good. First impression upon opening: freshly cut Christmas tree. Or is that the neighbor’s Douglas fir? Anyway… Smooth and very hoppy, with a hint of grapefruit. This is everything that an IPA should be.
The more I sample of Victory the more I like them.

As part of an on-going quest of trying "non west-coast" IPA's, I'm paying this one a revisit (Tried it once back when first getting into craft beer, but hadn't developed a taste for IPAs)
A - Pours a cloudy, amber hue, with a single-finger off-white head, which quickly recedes, but with good lacing.
S - Smell is of toasted caramel malts, faint notes of orange peel, and lots of floral/spicy hops
T - Taste is a great blend of floral, spicy hops, with just enough balancing toasted caramel malt and toffee notes. There are some faint citrus notes, but this one is mostly floral/spicy. I'm also getting some herbal notes in the finish. Really nice and well balanced here.
M - Body is spot on, registering in medium territory. Carbonation keeps this beer lively, but easily drinkable.
O - Overall, this is a pleasant IPA to get your hands on if you see it. Great, balanced flavor without being a hop-bomb that slaps you in the face, or too malty. Hopefully I can find this on draft on my next east coast trip.
