11oz pour at the Pour House in Exton, PA. Reviewed from notes.

A - golden straw color, great clarity, an initial 2 finger bright white head that slowly fades and leaves nice patches of lace.

S - wow... They must have dry-hopped the hell out of this thing because it smells amazing. Lots of peach, mango, and grapefruit with a subtle, sweet malt presence. A bit of pine.

T - big punch of citrus and tropical fruit that carries all the way into the finish. Lots of bittersweet grapefruit, some peach, mango, pineapple, and in the middle of the mouth a touch of sweet, bready malts. Some dank pine notes come in towards the end. Tastes super fresh and delicious. I have to say, I wasn't expecting this to be this good.

M - creamy, medium body, slightly prickly carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden. Easy drinking. Mildly bitter and dry finish.

O - Victory killed it with this one. An outstanding DIPA. Bright, clean hops from start to finish. Hopefully the Pour House doesn't kick that keg before I can make it back there! Victory would be wise to bottle this. Hop Devil and Wallop are good beers, but this is a great beer.

On tap @ the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a sudsy bright-white head. This stays rich looking with accompanying lace. The aroma is floral, dank and piney, with tight fresh citrus character and a twangy malt feel across the back. The taste has a bright citric bite with resins and spice that spread out into the finish. Light tropical, herbal and malt flavors helps temper the aggressiveness of the hops. The feel is medium to fuller bodied with a firm and creamy carbonation in the mouth. Alcohol is there but is kept in check. This was a most tasty and well balanced DIPA with a pretty dangerous drinkability for 9%. Loving these big hoppy beers from Victory lately!

On tap at Henry Street Taproom in Saratoga, NY, before the Phish concert.

Pours a hazy gold orange color. White, foamy, one inch head, great lacing.

Aromas include grapefruit, orange zest, pine, and some peach, maybe.

The flavors are very similar, with strong grapefruit and pine, with huge flavors of orange as well. Low, but pleasantly lingering bitterness, with no alcohol present whatsoever, which is impressive for the ABV.

Medium bodied, crisp, and drinkable. Awesome beer that went down quickly.

Another winner from Victory. They are truly putting out great stuff.
