Bottled on 12/30/03.
Hazy deep orange/amber in color, with some sediment in suspension. The head is healthy and lasting, leaving a fair amount of lace behind.
Aroma can only be described as "hop, the whole hop, and nothin' but the hop". Piney, fruity/citrusy notes mix in an intruiging way. Did I mention you can smell the hops?
Taste: Hoppy flavors dominate, with pine resin and citrus making themselves known up front. The citrus is almost pineapple-like. Slight trace of malt floating around in there somewhere, but I think the hops ganged up on it and beat it into submission. Balance is not this beer's strong suit. High bitterness throughout, with a dry finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth and substantial. Very nice.
Drinkability is good, especially if you like hoppy beers. The dry finish helps, too. Alcohol is well masked, so watch out!
Another good offering from Victory. There are other beers I would prefer, but I would definately drink this again.
