Bought a sixer from the local beer store, never even heard of this beer before I bought it, and I usually keep up on this stuff! Now, I can't have a proper summer without this unique and refreshing beer in my life!
A - Pours a golden yellow with some deep bronze hues and a very nice foamy head on top that left lots of lacing on my pint glass. Lots of carbonation, but nothing overkill, it all goes great together.
S - Incredibly unique scent. Smells, well, like summer. Picking up some scents of peanuts and some salty buttery popcorn maybe, almost a cracker jack-y kinda scent. Don't forget the citrus, some pine, that relaxing grassy scent and of course THE HOPS! Oh boy, those noble hops smell great with the other scents. Wish they'd make a candle out of this smell so I could have it in my house.
T - Very deep and complex. Sharp bite from the hops and citrus, some buttery saltiness from what honestly tastes like peanuts and popcorn, and that nice refreshing almost IPA-like finish. Great beer for a hot summer day.
M - Nothing too impressive here, feels like a typical beer. Some frothiness, a little bit of velvety smoothness, but other than that it feels like a standard beer.
O - Victory's done it again! I've yet to have a bad beer from Victory, and this one keeps that streak going! Perfect for a hot summer day, it really does taste like they've bottled summer itself up into a bottle, and I don't feel as though I can officially have a "good" summer any longer until I grab a case of this to drink. Great beer!
