With the sublime, earthy familiarity of noble European hops backed up by fresh, clean German malts, Summer Love Ale ends with a surprising burst of lemony refreshment from fistfuls of American whole flower hops. Love Summer, now.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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

Appearance is a crystal clear golden straw color with a thin layer of head that dissipated rapidly. The nose is lightly malty and the maltiness is also lightly present in the flavor profile. This offering is light-bodied. The finish has a semi-dry bitterness from the hops which appears to grow more hoppy as one moves down the glass.
