Pours a hazy orange amber color with strong dense cap of off-white froth. Scent brings floral, grassy and herbal hops along with a bitter malty backbone. Taste brings a decent amount of hops in the grassy/floral/earthy/herbal range and malts in the biscuity/nutty relm. Medium bodied, nice cask pour body. Decent but unremarkable IPA.

Pours golden orange with two fingers of white head in a British pint glass. Complex lacing and good head retention throughout consumption. Aroma is floral hops - really present at the nose. Flavor is definitely hoppy but starts mild, builds to nice malt flavor, then finishes and lingers on the bitter hop flavor.

Appearance: orange in color with a two finger head that leaves some thick lace on the glass while it slowly recedes.

Smell: loads of floral hop goodness here, along with some caramel and fruit sweetness.

Taste: caramel, golden apples, orange citrus, and a big floral component creates a well balanced and non-biting IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp throughout with a drying finish. The floral tones really last long here.

Overall: a very enjoyable and highly drinkable beer. I can say this is one of the better beers I have had from Victory over the years.

Pours a clear light copper. Large soapy topping leaves plenty of lacing down the pint. Smells of herbal, woodsy hops and bready malt. Strong bitterness, mild peppery note and fresh grapefruity citrus. Malt is complimentary only, providing almost enough to balance bodied feel with soft yet ample carbonation. Overall, this tastes like Hop Wallop's little brother. Quite hoppy and very drinkable. One vote for NATO!
