Deep mahogany color, fine tan head. The aroma is a balance of dark fruit malt and piney hops. Dark fruit comes through up front, with a touch of sweetness. Slightly vinous malt profile, with a minerally, woody tinge. Hops are plentiful and pervade the palate with citrus rind bitterness and hints of pine. A punchy beer, with equally pronounced malt and hops. For all the fruit flavors from the malt, the beer is pretty clean and finishes semi dry. Another nice one from Victory.

I found this single 12oz brown bottle in the discount bin at the Binny's in Plainfield, IL for $1.49. It amazes me what little gems you can find in there if you're willing to sort thru the 200 + bottles that are in there. This one had a freshness date on it of 11/3/10 so its got plenty of time before it's past its prime.

The beer poured a clear dark amber color and left a 1-finger creamy tan head that lasted about a minute. It also left behind a decent amount of lacing.

The smell was all hops. Lots of pine and grapefruit scents.

The taste is overpoweringly hoppy. There is a huge amount of grapefruit flavored bitterness to this but there is also quite a lot of malty sweetness as well. No skimping on the hops or the malts in this one, but there is no doubt that the hops win the battle.

The beer has a smooth oily texture to it with only medium carbonation. It also leaves a pretty big dose of bitterness in the aftertaste.

For an 8.7% abv brew, the alcohol stays pretty well hidden amongst the hops and malts so it's easy to drink one or two at a sitting, but any more than that and your head will be spinning.
