No date on the bottle, which seems odd for Victory. Poured into a tulip.
Pours a honeyed amber orange with a huge tan head that has a middling retention time. Lots of apparent carbonation. Little lace.
Aroma is lemon and grass with a sweaty funk. A slight woodiness. This is all overlaid with a perfume-floral character.
Taste starts light then moves into a pleasantly odd funk. This combines with a sturdy bitterness in the finish.
Medium mouth with a filling carbonation.
I really enjoy this brew. I can just sniff it all evening, but the drinking is excellent as well. This bottle had a bit more funk in the finish than I remember, but knowing the store where I purchased this it's been "cellared" for a while there.

Bottled in 2009 and held by brewery and re-distributed, then bought in 2014. Amber/orange.
A- Pours the biggest bubbly foam head I've ever seen right out of the bottle.
S- Yeasty and sour. hoppy too. candied oranges. Wild.
T- Similar to the smell really. Some sour notes from the yeast action. The hops has really mellowed out. I hope others review this delayed/aged re-release because I don't think I'm doing it justice with this review. But it's a pretty exciting/interesting beer.
M- Very bubbly and fizzy in the mouth.
O- I thought about getting some hop devil (which I haven't had yet, though I loved V's Hop Fresh) to taste alongside this one but this beer stands on its own as completely unique from the original Hop Devil. It is indeed wild, and I'm glad I tried it.
