I'm running out of beers wtih several hundred reviews that I've never had, but this is definitely one that I've managed to overlook for the past decade, that ends today. On tap at Meridian pint.

Beer is light amber and clear with moderate to light carbonation, a thin white head of small bubbles, some lacing, looks nice.

Aroma is sweet, mildy hoppy, a little earthy, smells fine.

Beer is medium to light in body, easy drinking, wet finish, wet throughout, the hops are subdued and under emphasized, there is a mild graininess to the finish but overall a decent APA.

A pleasant surprise! On tap at the BBC in Wilmington...

Pours a clear amber, lighter than many, with decent head and lacing. Aroma of caramelized malts with a nice citrus hop undertone. Flavour is well balanced; malts with decent "c" hops... pine & grapefruit present, but not overwhelming. Would buy again.

I tried this pint with trepidation after other Victory attempts, but was genuinely impressed. Will support this brewery at any future point that I can...
