12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a pretty solid one finger white head. Really great head retention and decent lacing.
Aroma is very herbal with a bit of citrus thrown in. There is a very lemon/lime quality about it. A really good bready base with a little bit of biscuit thrown it. A really nice malt/hop balance and a change up from the all-too-typical tropical fruit aroma of IIPA's.
Lots more of the herbal citrus on the taste. It is definitely lemon and lime and also some floral characters. I would best describe it as just "herby" and I really think Simcoe hops figure in prominently as they have a very unique aroma and flavor. Assertive bitterness throughout that is wonderful. Lots of bread from the malt with a touch of biscuit. Nearly perfect balance between malt and hop. Mouthfeel is full with a slightly sticky finish. Abv is extremely well hidden and there is no way one would guess this is 8.5%
Overall, another amazing beer from Victory. I have been nothing but impressed by every beer I have had from this brewery. I desperately wish they would distribute to East Tennessee.
