look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden amber color with minimal head and moderate lacing.

Smells rather mildly of piney hops and caramelized malts.

Tastes much like it smells, being slightly heavier on hops than malts but nothing is overpowering or offensive. Quite refreshing, and extremely well balanced.

It's moderately carbonated, and goes down smooth like almost every other Victory brew.

Overall, a very good pale ale and a really exceptional session beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Picked up a couple of singles at the end of April for $1.49 each. I could not find a freshness date.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is toasted grains with hints of citrus hops.

Taste is well balanced between the toasted grains and citrus hops. Some hints of mango was present. Bit of pine oil left behind in the end

Mouthfeel is medium boded, decently carbonated, and medium bodied.

Overall this is a pretty tasty brew, nice representation of the style.
