Pours a honey color from my authentic Victory growler. The body looks slightly hazy and lacks a really good carbonation profile.
Heads a bright white with a loose structure, fades quickly leaving wispy lacing.

Aroma has an upfront hop bouquet with sutle malts. Spicy and medicinal.

Taste is upfront some spicy pepper.

From the growler taste a bit thin and watery.

A good looking beer with a nice aroma taste is a bit weak but still good to the last drop.

Musically I'd pair this beer to Gov't Mule's verision of simple man.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

A golden color with a bit of haze. Thin white cap. Some lacing.

Grainy and bready aroma with something unpleasant and somewhat off-putting. Reminds me of American adjunct lagers, unfortunately. Little hop presence, was expecting more.

Taste follows the nose nearly identically.

Thin to medium mouthfeel, appropriate for the style.

Not a beer I particularly enjoyed. Pretty in the glass, but a lackluster aroma and flavor.

The almost deep gold brew had a massive head from the growler. great lacing. The head fell uneven and in deep chunks. looked great. The beer is not quite clear. barely cloudy.

Smells like grapefruits, a bit floral, slightly vegetal, and that little yeast kick in the nose I get from many Victory beers.

Grapefruit flavors follow from the aroma to the taste. Floral presence as well. Hits everywhere on the tongue, leaving it pleasantly coated for a moment before leaving entirely. very refreshing.

Warning: Extreme drinkability!!!

Thanks to mymrnngjckt for grabbing a growler of this for me at Whole Foods.

Pours a slightly hazed pale golden color with a pillowy two inches of bone white head. Keeps a full lace and coats the glass nicely with some rings of stick.

Smell is very hop forward with some really nice grassy and lemony aromas. Has a spicy element as well but the grassiness is the most pronounced Has a doughy sweetness as well with some grainy notes.

At first I didn't think the taste was quite as hoppy as the nose but it only took a few more sips for me to reverse my opinion. It is very grassy, not as lemony, but spicier than the nose and with a pretty substantial bitterness for a pils. Very light sweetness and some grain as well, with some grassy bitterness left on the palate in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good crisp feel, although perhaps not quite as crisp as I like from a pils Clean finish and very dry with the hop bitterness.

This is a really tasty pils and it's surprising how bitter it is given that it's a fresh hop beer. It's up there in bitterness for a pilsener of any persuasion. For my money I still like Prima better but I like Prima better than just about everything so that's no knock on this beer. A very tasty, enjoyable beer for sure.
