3.6/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served on-tap in a short 10oz mini-imperial glass at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Honey-gold with short cap of off-white tightly bubbled head with decent retention and a few legs of lacing.

S: Good aroma but just above-average with pine, resin, and grapefruit aromas. Classic aroma. The maltiness is pretty one-dimensional with some light crystal and mid-range breadiness.

T: The flavor is fine but not much more can be said as it is pretty generic and underpowered overall. The pone, grapefruit, floral, and resiny characteristics are nice but don't provide much anything unique. THe maltiness is slightly sweeter than in the nose but provides good heft.

M: Reasonably dry and drinkable with moderate carbonation.

O: Good but uninspired.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served on-tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a hazy pale orange in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface of the beer and a fair amount of apricot + peach highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to just a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of overripe citrus/grapefruit hops along with lighter aromas of herbal hops, pine hops, and just a touch of bready malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate biscuit/bready malt flavor with moderate to strong flavors of overripe citrus/grapefruit/tangerine and hints of herbal/floral hops. Light amounts of bitterness that fade quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Overall, there is something not quite right about the flavor of this brew but I just cannot put my finger on exactly what it is - possibly a strange combination of hop aromas/flavors. Otherwise this is a pretty pedestrian offering from Victory whom I expect a little more from.

Delicious new offering from Victory.

The body is a surprising golden hue, with just a touch of haziness to it. Decent lacing is left behind by a fluffy white head.

The smell is restrained, not quite jumping out from the glass, but nice. Slight sweetness of malt underscores pine and a touch of grapefruit citrus.

The taste is nicely balanced between sweet malt and mildly assertive hop bitterness. My guess is wheat, and this is reflected in a rather full mouthfeel for the style. Alcohol is well hidden, and the hops come across as piney and citrusy with a rounder tropical, fruity finish.

All in all, a winner in my book, but not anything that's going to rewrite the history books.
