A special beer brewed in collaboration with Philadelphia "With Love" tourism board, is a pale ale made with german pale malt, and locally sourced water (duh). Summer Love was very pale in color almost blonde and had a nice tuft of foam on top. In appearance it could have passed for a pilsner, which is to say too pale for a pale ale. The smell is dominated mostly by grassy hops with a little tinge of lemon--there is a bit of sulfur in the aroma as the beer warms and a bit of cooked veggie. The taste was very nice and clean with light malt flavors, crisp hops and slightly citric finish. The beer was lighter in body than I would have liked, but was easy to drink and refreshing

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.
