Victory Hop Wallop: A twelve-ounce bottle, of a very hoppy ale. Its got a cute little spiel down the side about the origins of Hop Wallop. Pours a hazy color, with an extraordinary amount of suspended sediment (despite the fact that this brew has been sitting in the fridge without moving for a good month). Fairly nice head, leaves some diffuse Belgian lace down the side of the glass. Curious aroma, very strong aroma of hops, but there is a wee bit off smell here as well, almost ammonia.
Very hoppy beer, that is true, extremely strong hop flavors, but almost absent is any malt base. As bitter as an IIPA as Ive seen. Unfortunately, this beer is missing those floral/citrus hop flavors that really would have taken this brew to the next level. Leaves a slick feeling on the tongue, as it dries out the palate.
As it stands, it is a true hop bomb, and not a whole lot more. In addition, I am perplexed by the high level of sediment in this brew, I do not believe that Ive seen it in other examples of the style.
