First off: Big thanks to BuckeyeNation for the chance to sample this brew.
Pours a murky golden amber with little to no head. Leaves plenty of sticky white lacing as you go.
Nose is fairly strong with grapefruit hops mingled with some damp-hay style muskiness.
First hit on the palate is more of the citrus bitterness from the nose. The bitterness backs off a bit on the midsip and that muskiness comes up center stage. Aftertaste is a jump back to the citrus bitterness again.
Overall, a solid offering from Victory. I think I still prefer Dreadnaught as far as DIPAs go, but then I haven't tried this fresh. I'll re-review when I do.
