Picked up a 4-pack of this the other day at a fairly reasonable price and was very pleased with this one.
Appearance: Pours a nice golden color with a frothy head about 1 1/2 fingers thick into a tulip.
Smell: Grapefruit right off the nose, nice fruity, citrus smell
Taste: Grapefruit and tropical fruits with a nice steady bitterness that doesn't overpower. A very juicy tasting beer with almost no taste of the alcohol. Very refreshing and could be dangerous without the taste of alcohol to make you pace yourself.
Mouthfeel: Juicy, slick but doesn't smash your palate at all.
Overall: This is an excellent offering from Victory and to be quite honest I think this is far better than DirtWolf. It's cleaner tasting, has more of a bite to it with its hop profile and fruity, citrus flavors are a bit more pronounced. I will be a repeat customer of this for sure.

Pours into a standard pint a clear dull yellow with a tightly formed one finger white head,the pour was not real awe inspiring by any means.Tropical fruits in the nose along with a bit of sweet onion,very fresh and juicy smelling.Flavors of grapefruit and mango are just dripping,almost like drinking mixed fruit juice,in the finish I pick up some vidalia onion,not much of a malt presence but a decent amount of sugary sweetness.This is a big fruity,juicy hopped IPA here,way to easy to drink.

12oz bottle poured to dogfish mini-pilsner glass. Appearance is golden with tones of yellow..smell is fruity, grapefruit, citrus, apricot..taste is smooth for suggested 9%abv. Starts sweet amd citrus, and finishes fruity, and smooth, "air-ee" light bodied creamy mouthfeel. Lemon rind and orange peel.,highlights the hop frehness and taste without being too bitter or cloying.. Lacing is foamy and sticky. Carbonation is medium, with a crisp dry feel on the finish..this is refreshing and admirable. Paired nice with kabobs-cucumber yogurt sauce, grilled meat chimmichurri, mexican corn with cotija, feta.
