Poured into my new favorite glass, the Newburyport Brewing can-shaped glass.
Pours pale yellow, a little dirty with some floaties, just how I like my big IPAs. The color has a near-glow to it, very pretty.
Aroma is a mix of fruits, fresh and past-ripe, like a fruit stand. More melon than anything, but very pleasant.
Spectacular flavor with this one. This is the first bottled brew that I've had that captures some of Hill Farmstead's magical IPA combination of super pale brews that mix equal parts earthiness, grassiness, citrus, and bitterness. This really tastes like a HF collab. A wonderfully clean yet complex beer, which features biting orange and mango on a bed of grass and dandylion bitterness.
The mouthfeel is nice, yet a touch suprisingly sweet and sticky. Still nice.
Wow, blown away by this beer. I haven't partaken in Victory's beers enough lately, methinks. I'll dive on this beer whenever it's available.

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.
