3.28/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

I saw this on the shelf at Total Wine in Sarasota and had to try one of the few major releases from Victory that I hadn't yet.

A: Poured into a standard pint glass, small tight head that doesn't stick around. Really cool ruby/brownish color with great highlights.

S: Smell is pretty hop forward with some dry fruit maybe. A little sweetness in there too. I'm getting over a cold, so I may have to revisit that when I'm feeling 100%.

T: Sweet up front with a lot of malty, carmel notes and a pretty big hop-bitterness. However, the bitterness lingers a bit too long and too bitter for my liking. the longer I work on each sip, the less I want to take another due to the bitterness at the back of my mouth. If not for this, it would have scored much higher.

M: Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Judging on this alone, I'm surprised at the high alcohol content.

D: Besides the longstanding bitterness I was getting on the finish, I'd love this beer. However, the unpleasant aftertaste is probably going to make this a one-and-done selection for me. Victory is a killer brewery and everything they make is worth drinking. This one may just be a matter of my own personal preference, but I'll stick to Hopdevil if I'm looking for bitterness.
