4.28/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a standard pint from a 12 oz bottle.

Appearance: Nice light golden color with a substantial white head. Dies after a few minutes, but leaves an excellent lacing.

Smell: Hops, grass, pine. Nothing remarkable, but very evident.

Taste: This tastes last a remarkable session IPA, but it's actually a Double IPA with a higher ABV. If this wouldn't get me trashed very quickly, this would be a favorite session IPA of mine. Regardless, this is excellent and highly recommended. Nice hop flavor with great richness and a good pine flavor. Light citrus notes on the end, and a little alcohol, but not much.

Mouthfeel: Not particularly heavy with appropriate hop levels. Great lightly bitter "grassy" aftertaste.

This is a pretty excellent ale and one of the best beers I've had from Victory.

4.39/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This beer is technically past its prime, but I saw it on the shelf and knew I needed to grab one while I could.
A: It's a beautiful beer. Pours a bright tangerine color. Pretty clear, maybe a little chill haze. Two fingers of head that slowly dissipates. Awesome lacing on the glass.
S: For an old bottle the hops are still very present in the aroma. Powerful citrus and pine. There's almost a hoppy sweetness in the nose.
T: Yep, awesome beer. It lives up to the hype for me. Strong hop characteristics of pine, citrus, and floral notes. Slightly resinous. There's actually a very slight sourness to it like a strong belgian pale. Perhaps that's from the age.
MF: There's a great malt character that keeps this beer pretty balanced for all the hoppyness it provides. Very carbonated, again almost like a belgian strong ale. The alcohol is very present, slightly warming.
O: An awesome beer. I wish there were more than one of these at the bottle shop. Great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. I think I would describe this as straight up hop juice.
