4.15/5 rDev +11.6%
Served on tap into a nonic glass.
A- Poured a very clear and light pale yellow color with lots of streaming carbonation, white frothy head left glass-coating lace.
S- Bug burst of citrusy hops and lemon-grass notes. It smells like Amarillo hops.
T- Big bright citrusy and grapefruit hops balanced with a really nice cracker malt backbone. Some pungent hop character on the finish, but it does not linger.
M- Super refreshing, dry, medium body, and smooth.
O- This is really nice hopped-up summer beer that is very refreshing.

3.25/5 rDev -12.6%
Victory Summer Love has an ABV of 5.2% and is referred to as a Golden Ale on the brewer’s website.
Appearance: Very pale straw color, slightly cloudy, with a thin had that laces a bit
Smell: A light malt aroma comes through first and persists through a hint of noble or European hops
Taste: Reminiscent of a Kölsch, with German hops coming through an intentionally malty profile, but hoppier. An American hop bitterness persists in the finish, but the malt backbone hangs in also. This is NOT what I expected from its light, thin pour.
Mouthfeel: Surprisingly malty, a bit yeasty, and more substantial than I’d expect of an American Blonde Ale
Overall: A good beer for a summer evening – refreshing, not too distracting, and yet worth paying some attention to
