Figured I should drink this since its almost to its best by date.
A - Well not a super attractive IPA in the slightlest not only is it loaded with floaties but the beer itself looks like a light lager. Head is good though a 1/2 inch which makes for great lacing rings.
S - Smell is rather skunky with some herbal bitterness. Smells more like a lager to me though.
T - Very dry, herbal and not very sessionable the bitterness seems unbalanced and the malt seems no existent. Bad just so bad.
M - For a light session IPA they got the INTENSE bitterness part way turned up making it unbalanced and hardly sessionable.

Overall I enjoyed the Dry Hopped Pilsner imensly so I am super confused what the hell happened here. Were they in a rush to make another beer for the Hop Ticket series so they just released it for the hell of it? Did they even drink it before putting it on the shelfs?

Regardless I have never truly appreciated a session IPA so I am not sure why I even got it. Bad Victory! BAD DOG!

Pours an effervescent golden in my Icelandic Viking pint glass. Huge head (nearly overflowing) of fine, white bubbles. Thin, wispy spiderweb lacing.

Nose is crisp citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Obviously heavily hopped, this is an extravagant and oh-so-impressive start.

Taste is sharp and ultra-hoppy, with tons of tropical (pineapple, mango) and citrus notes jumping out instantly. A really wonderful session IPA, and one that deserves wider release. Definitely a superior and world-class IPA!
