This is my favorite beer.
Has a nice amber color and is not cloudy. Good white head that lasts for a while.
Aroma is of fresh hops and not overpowering.
Delicious hoppy taste and well balanced.
The mouthfeel is medium and full-bodied, and very refreshing.
I think the secret to its great taste is Victory's wet-milling process. It permits the barley husk to be removed from the kernel with less breakage. A more intact husk means less tannic bitterness imparted in the sweet wort. Not too many brewers do wet-milling because it is a slower process and takes more time than dry-milling.

Appearance was not notable
S - general mix of pleasant hops...citrus, pine, floral
T - bitter then sweet then floral then resinous bitter with clean finish
M - Solid carbonation, the reason this beer rates so high is that it is full of delicious hoppiness, yet without an overwhelming bitterness that accumulates on the palate
O - an extremely drinkable pale ale
