This was my first hand pump cask beer.
Appearance was light orange/gold with a thin head.
Smelled bitter and spicy with some citrus.
Taste was definetely creamy due to the lack of carbonation. Hops, bitter grapefruit, and slightly malty.
It went down less-than smooth and was kind of chewy.
A pretty good offering from Victory, but I think I enjoy it from the bottle more.

This beer is technically past its prime, but I saw it on the shelf and knew I needed to grab one while I could.
A: It's a beautiful beer. Pours a bright tangerine color. Pretty clear, maybe a little chill haze. Two fingers of head that slowly dissipates. Awesome lacing on the glass.
S: For an old bottle the hops are still very present in the aroma. Powerful citrus and pine. There's almost a hoppy sweetness in the nose.
T: Yep, awesome beer. It lives up to the hype for me. Strong hop characteristics of pine, citrus, and floral notes. Slightly resinous. There's actually a very slight sourness to it like a strong belgian pale. Perhaps that's from the age.
MF: There's a great malt character that keeps this beer pretty balanced for all the hoppyness it provides. Very carbonated, again almost like a belgian strong ale. The alcohol is very present, slightly warming.
O: An awesome beer. I wish there were more than one of these at the bottle shop. Great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. I think I would describe this as straight up hop juice.
