Pours a slightly hazy light amber with one finger of soapy white head, settles to a thin layer leaving a few splotches of lace on the glass. Smell: pepper, floral, light brett fruitiness, lemon peel, hay. Taste: unripe nectarine mild tartness, grapeskin, doughy, then into lemon, grassy hopping, peppery towards the finish. Light/medium bodied with a soft, plush feel. Mildly tart melon ending. Would be nice if Victory would put out more of this and less of mediocre IPAs.

pretty complex brew. there is a sourness to it for sure. not getting a huge amount of funk. lot of lemon, sour grape, hint of vinegar, spice, a buttery quality, smooth, citrusy. a complex, high abv, still somewhat light for summer, still full bodied and full flavored. very drinkable awesome
