My first offering from Victory has proven to be a good one.
Poured into a standard pint glass with a Dragonmead logo
Pours a golden orangey-yellow with a creamy white one-finger head. Lacing is great, as it should be. Looks thin and quite effervescent.
Smell is firstly hops.. the grassy, green, flowery hops. So wonderful. Caramel, molasses sweetness comes through at the end.
It tastes like a double ipa should, and is definitely a hop wallop. I was honestly expecting it to finish a little more bitter than it does, and for that I'm slightly let down. Piney hop profile as opposed to incredibly citric. Slight malty sweetness as you swallow, but tastebud-numbing hop oils remain.
It's a little thin, and quite carbonated, but the drinkability is through the roof for it being so "light". The abv doesn't play a role on the taste, so it's quite deceiving!
It's a good beer that I would definitely revisit.
