Found this at Sam's in West Chester. Really suprised to see this in bottles, i thought it was a small volume, keg only seasonal. $12.50 for a six pack, which i would expect to spend on something with a double preceding the style name.
The beer pours a super-thin pale yellow with a very small white head. Lacing is plentyful, though not sticky. Head stays patchy in the center of the glass.
The smell is good, immediately reminded me of their hop wallop. Very sharp and grapefruity.
Taste was a light and buttery "hop wallop" light. Citrus and grapefruit, with a little sweetness.
Mouthfeel is super light, dry and crisp wich makes drinking it addictive.
Overall, its good and very drinkable. More citrus than sweet, which i love. But im not completely sold, id like it to have more body and punch. A decent beer, and i appreciate Victory's recent push to start bottling and distributing a wider range of styles.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a pretty clear deep straw color with a good sized tightly bubbled white head that recedes to form a cap on top. Aromas of bready and light caramel malts with a solid floral spicy hop to counter. The flavor is rich sweet bready malts with a bit of earthy spicy hops. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Wow I really enjoyed this beer! Extremely clean, simple, but quite flavorful at the same time.

On tap at Claddaghs
Appearance: pale golden straw color with a one finger white head
Smell: funky malt, lemon zest, grassy
Taste: funky malts upfront with a lemony hop finish
Mouthfeel: Light body with a bitter finish
Overall: Nothing to write home about. I found this to be quite funky with the hops not even able to mask it. I typically enjoy everything Victory does, but this is an exception. I'm gonna pretend I never had this offering. I'll stick to blonde women instead
