4.04/5  rDev -4.9%

Paler look for a DIPA. Yellow-orange with lots of haze and a crisp slice of white foam.

Lemony citrus hops with floral aromas in the happening. Light tangerine makes for quite the unique hoppiness. Almost a German-like element to the malts, which are summery pale and not without slight hints of white breadiness.

Bready and with a haughty yeast profile. Hard to completely share a moment with the loud voice of alcohol speaking for itself. Lemony, bready; and with notes of tangerine, citrus pith, flowery hops, and a very mellow banana. White bread all the way, speaking to the malts here. Has rather mild bitterness for the style. Really intriguing, in a good way.

Feels smooth and nearly milky. Rises above my expectations. Carb has perk, but doesn't mess with the plus body.

Great beer. Maybe dissension in the ranks, but its okay if a beer like this has this kind of temperament.

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.
