I think the best way to start this review is with a "WOW!" I am absolutely blown away by this beer. Poured into a pint glass, a golden amber. The head had decent retention and initially poured 3 fingers high and stuck around for a few minutes before dissipating. There was also a nice amount of lacing that stuck to the glass once the beer was finished off. I'm not 100% sure what it was that was floating in the beer, possibly finely ground rinds? The smell of this beer was exceptional; I could successfully pick off citrus hops and pine. The initial taste of this beer was that of citrus hops and pine. This progressed to a hint of grapefruit and possibly some lemon. The finale was a pleasant bitterness which left me with a need to drink the experience again. This beer has a medium body and for me, any type of IPA is a sipping beer, not something I could down in an instant, nor would I want to.
My final thoughts for this beer is that Victory is spot on with this brew, it is fantastic and in my personal top 3 beers. I will definitely be buying this again , regardless of its price. V for Victory.
