11.23.2011. First beer review ever. Yakima Glory Ale – Victory Brewing. ABV: 8.7

I acquired this beer as part of a variety pack. The variety pack had a much sought after Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and a Chub Scotch Ale in it along with some others I’ve wanted to try but never had. Never heard of this one. Don’t know Victory Brewing. Who knows what I am getting into here with a “dark IPA”…

Appearance: Reddish-brown color. Half inch head dissipates quickly, but not completely. Leaves a little lacing. Color looks unlike any other IPA I have ever had. I’ve had pale, black, reddish… nothing like this. But it’s a good different. Nice color. Grade: 4.5

Smell: Malty, almost stout like. Red wine. Nuts. Very pleasant. But again, not very IPA-like. Grade: 4.5
Taste: Not as hoppy as I was expecting from the IPA label. Probably best not to call this an IPA. Taste is consistent with appearance and nose. Tastes like a strong red lager more than a standard IPA. A little citrus. Sweet candy. Some coffee. No alcohol burn, but something in there bites the tongue a little. Guess that’s the well-hidden hops. Grade: 3.5

Mouth: Medium body. Sticky. A little too much carbonation. Grade: 3.5

Overall: I could drink this again. Not excellent, but something a little different. A solid B overall.

Served: 12-Bottle poured into a hurricane glass (Relatively new to the craft world. I’ve requested proper beerware for Xmas. For now, my very old free-with-the-purchase-of-a-long-island-iced-tea glass does the job)

Serving type: bottle
