4.15/5 rDev +5.6%
Poured into a becker glass.
Pours a clear light copper with a near white wispy lace head. Head settles to a patchy island. Good clinging to the edges and the head retains the island the whole drink. Pretty good looks.
Brew smells of big floral and herbal hops. Some malted barley as well. Good bready yeasts as well. Good nose.
Brew is crisp and the hops pepper the tongue initially, then a smooth mellow middle and a dry finish. Good hop spiciness; herbal, floral and a nice barley malt and bready back drop. Some sweet citrus makes an appearance as well. Very good feel and taste here.
Wow this is a tremendous APA. A sessionable great tasting brew here. Wow Victory delivers yet again.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with wispy lace and head. Smells crisp and clean, lots of piney hops, malt sweetness and a bit of citrus.
Taste is just like the smell very crisp and clean, sweet up front with lots of crisp citrus hops, mild pine notes and a refreshingly dry finish. Overall a wonderful session beer, delicious and easy to sip. I want this one in the summer.

Poured into 13 oz tulip. Pours a bright orange yellow, with a nice 1 inch white head, that leaves some nice lace. Smell is tangerine, grass, flowers, and pineapple. Taste is less pungent, with hints of grapefruit in the finish. Body is pretty standard, plenty of carbonation, on the drier side, and easy drinking. Little disappointed because the taste couldn't live up to the smell. Still a good pale ale, but the smell is outstanding.

This offering from the folks at Victory is a very well made, drinkable beer. The beer pours a nice amber-copper color with a very lively cap of foam. The foam clings to the glass causing fractal-like patterns. The aroma is a heavy dose of citrus and and flower hops. The malt provides balance . Caramel and grain offset the dollop of citrus and flower bitterness at the end. A very nice addition to Victory's lineup.
