Had on draft in a typical pint glass. Nice light golden appearance with a finger and a half of white, frothy head.
Typically I'm not expecting too much from a beer that is as light as this was but there was a good malty aroma with some floral overtones and it was a Victory product so I was eager to consume.
The taste was light yet full of malty goodness and just the right hoppy-ness. A perfect balance in my opinion. Very drinkable for both a light beer drinker and for those wanting something more. This is a beer that could convert your Miller and Bud friends into a craft drinker.
Serving type: on-tap

Light amber in color, topped with two fingers of foam. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is hop forward, and there are undoubted American hops at work (checking the hop bill... Yep: Citra and Simcoe, plus Tettnang). Primarily citric character of grapefruit rind, a little bit of tangerine. Bready malt aroma.
The flavor profile is reminiscent of another Victory brew: Headwaters Pale Ale. Citric and grassy hop flavors upfront followed by crisp, light malt. APA-like bitterness levels. Light body with brisk but soft carbonation.
Hopheads should give this a look. Much more hop-forward than the usual summer seasonal blonde ale, which tend to be somewhat bland.
Serving type: bottle
