First had: on cask at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Looking this up, I'm surprised it's a IPA, much less a DIPA, but okay. Served up in a tulip glass, this beer was a cloudy copper color with a huge puff of foamy white head that retained well and left quite a bit of lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted grains, light floral/herbal hops. Biscuity grains in the taste, bready, notes of yeast, light herbal hops, lemon pith. Quite mild actually, and at 9%ABV, I gotta say, there was no alcohol detectable whatsoever. Medium body; made up in smoothness what it lacked in flavor. Pretty drinkable, but nothing amazing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Clear yellow pour with about a finger of fluffy white head. The lacing clings to the glass nicely, but the retention leaves something to be desired.

S: A bit bland, the aroma is sort of dank and musty. Perhaps a bit malty, not a lot of fruit. Just average.

T: The taste is more bitter, but not particularly better. Piney, with a musty hop profile. I don't really know what they were going for here, but I think they missed.

MF: It leaves a weird taste on the palate. Crisp finish, the beer just isn't all that drinkable.

O: Skip this if you see it. I live Victory beers, just not this one.

2nd beer at the Blue Dog Pliny event.

A- A nice amber/copper like appearance. Filtered brew with noticeable bubbles throughout. Thick white head of about two fingers, cakes the glass in lace.

S- Earthy hop profile, and a decent caramel malt background. A little bit of sweetness, and maybe some lemons. Hard to follow the nose of younger.

T- A balanced double IPA. Sweet hop flavors, lemon and grass, and a strong candy like malt. Lot of malt in here actually. Maybe it's me but Victory has easily the most distinguishable yeast profile of any brewery. It leaves it's stamp on this beer too.

M- Medium bodied brew with mid to high carbonation. Pretty smooth, no heat either from abv.

O- Probably not fair to review this after Younger but still a good beer in it's own right. If you're looking for a balanced DIPA this is for you.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with yellowish hues and a half finger white head that quickly settles into thin ring.  Spotty lacing.  

Sweet citrus hop aroma balanced by earthy grass notes, tropical fruit and pale malts.  Hints of orange peel, grapefruit and mango as well as some biscuit, graham cracker, grass and pine.

On the fuller end of medium-bodied with a decent balance of dry/bitter and sweet fruit notes.  Hints of earthy grass and pine provide a nice balance to the sweet fruit and booze.  Citrus/orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple and mango with earthy/soily pine, biscuit and graham cracker.  A bit hot/boozy in the finish.  ABV could be masked a bit better but it's still decently drinkable.

3.63/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: A golden brown color that is transparent, a nice one finger off white head at the top that does not leave to much lacing.

S: Lots of citrus and pine notes on this one and a slight hint of caramel and honey.

T: The taste is pleasant but not of the best IPA's I have had. Lots of citrus notes and grassy notes as well. A good balance of hops and malts.

M: Medium bodied and good amount of carbonation.

O: This is probably one of the best Victory brews that I have had, I believe that they have a big potential but they havent lived up to it yet.

Poured from tap at Alewife, Baltimore. Pours a clear golden with thick head. Smells of citra like hops; grapefruit and sweet candy hops. Taste was mild all around and bitter to boot. Not very enjoyable, but easy to drink...basically just getting through it. The abv is well hidden, but so are the flavors...dissapointinng to say the least.
