Big fan of Victory beers but this one was below average for me. For me, I see no reason to stray from Victory's own HopDevil beer (a very solid IPA) for this one. I can't put my finger on why this one didn't do it for me. I guess this one is just too much of a beer for my liking.

A 12 ounce bottle, poured into a DFH Signature Glass.

A: The beer pours a light gold, with a one finger fizzy head that doesn't hang around too long. Nice lacing, though.

S: Sweet and citrusy hops. Nice, but a little boring to be honest.

T: Bitter hops upfront, wth a sweet maltiness present as well. Citrus notes come at you as well, but can't quite overtake the bitterness.

M: Lightly carbonated, with alcohol notes present in the finish.

O: An enjoyable, though average, DIPA, but not one I'm going to seek out again. If this was the only IPA available in a pinch though, I'd definitly go for it.

A - Pours a rich, bubbly gold with a thick, off-white single finger head. Retention and lacing is top notch!

S - Smell is of subtle, leafy hops, orange peel, lemon, and mango. Maybe the hops are just subtle to me, being used to west-coast style IPA's, lol.

T - Taste is of moderately bitter hops up front, and is quickly overpowered by a blast of citrus goodness. Lemon and orange during the initial bitterness, and ends with a sweet, mango-like finish. Bready malt texture. Slightly on the boozy side, but the citrus dominates.

M - Medium bodied, and moderately carbonated. Drinkability is good overall.

O - Overall, it's a nice DIPA that's not quite as aggressive as the stuff that's more local to me. Great choice for those who like their IPA's with more emphasis on citrus flavor
