3.85/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance- Golden colored, some head, not much lacing on the glass.
Smell- Some citrusy hops with a malty undertone.
Taste- Very balanced. Citrus flavors balanced by a solid malt backbone.
Mouthfeel- As drinkable as a hoppy craft brew gets. Nice body, nice carbonation. Good hop flavor, but doesn't destroy my palate.
Overall- Another quality offering from Victory. A very good pale ale. Definately not one of those APAs that are basically IPAs, so do not expect a hopbomb. Just a quality beer you can drink a six pack over the course of a night and not regret it in the morning.

4/5 rDev +1.3%

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.
A: Vivid amber hue with a creamy three-finger head that takes eons (in beer-time) to deflate to a 1/4" cap. Tons of lacing left behind as the head dissipates.
S: Some light citrusy hops—grapefruit, little bit of orange and tangerine, but mostly grapefruit. A decent amount of malty sweetness underneath to keep things mild and balanced.
T: A bit of citrus upfront with some lightly floral notes coming though. Hints of maltiness and breadiness balance everything else out to keep the profile very mild while still allowing the hops to shine.
M: Medium body with a crisp carbonation. Finishes dry and goes down super-smooth. This one is the definition of sessionable.
O: Another fantastic brew from Victory. This one is great for hopheads and non-hopheads alike. Well-balanced flavors, a bit of complexity, and wonderful sessionability. A recommended brew, no doubt.
