Poured from a bottle into a Stone IPA tulip. The pour is very pale, gold in color with just a hint of orange. There is a nice, tight two fingers of head and good retention. It looks like a good Czech Pilsner. The nose is certainly hop-forward with predominant notes of citrus fruits, especially lemons, pineapples, and oranges.
Medium-light body for such a big beer, but a firm, slightly oily feel that definitely satisfies. There is a slightly dry, cracker-like graininess up front and a well-tempered hop balance at mid-palate. The hops are well-behaved and are not out to vandalize your palate. Rather, they liven things up with a little lemony spice and then join the malt on the finish for a nice, appetizing dryness. Very, very drinkable for the style.
First DirtWolf and then this. Those folks at Victory are killing it right now! While I think I like the sheer, kick-you-in-the-balls-of-your-tongue citrusy glory of DirtWolf, this one is awfully good too. Cheers to Victory!

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.
