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.
