750 ml. corked and caged bottle and man, did I have a time getting that cork out. I see Victory does not want to repeat corking errors found in the V 10. Anyway, this beer's appearance is a quite clear and lustrous red orange. Small head fades quickly and nose reveals big malt and fruity esters. Whoo boy! This stuff is a bit young. Remarkably sweet upfront and bitter hops are undetectable, which is no surprise. I believe the hops are there and lend to a smooth finish and somewhat cut the cloying sweetness. The nice fruity characteristics found in the nose are found in force in the flavor. Not bad. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy with small carbonation. Alcohol is there and makes its presence known first on the palate then later in the head. Good creeper beer. A little age behind this bad boy and I see it being much better.
