A - Pours a bright medium gold color with a one fingered creamy rich white head. Slight carbonation.

S - Dank citrus, mango, apricot, some pineapple, and exhibits some of those qualities of citra hops we've all grown to love or hate...cat pee. (Even though there's no citra in this beer.)

T - Follows the nose and is hop forward all the way through - apricot, mango, a little bit of tropical fruit, and a piney bitter ending.

M - Flat, medium body. I can only blame it on the growler was taken from the bottom of the keg so there wasn't much life left in it.

O - Meh, not as good as Dirt Wolf.

Appearance is a golden straw color with a thin layer of head. Grapefruit and hop notes are definitely present in the nose. The most noticeable thing about the flavor profile is that there is some nice maltiness here. The grapefruit and hops make a comeback on the finish, but the hop profile is not as strong as one would expect from a top flight DIPA.

Poured a golden body with good head and lacing on top of a mostly citric hop smell, and for a hoppy beer like this no surprise although not a particular strong hop smell nor are the malts that noticeable. Smooth, easy to drink, I like the hop flavor of citric and a touch of spice and pine and I would say my only criticisms are while the hops are not a tastebud killer it would've been nice for some more malts to balance as I get a touch of bitter dryness on the finish. An easy to drink hop and booze heavy IPA which is not something easy to do and an altogether enjoyable ale.

LOOK: Poured into one of those dang snifter glasses. Pours a bright gold with a white creamy head that laces the glass well. Good clarity and decent retention.

SMELL: Tropical and pine aromas are quite strong. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple and papaya all are in force, quite a juicy smelling Double IPA.

TASTE: Nice pine and hoppy acidity. Grapefruit, lemon, lime, and pretty much citrus all day. Resin, blonde tobacco, pine, sap, green tea. Hop bomb with some different flavors.

FEEL: Medium bodied, crisp and well carbonated. Drinks easily.

OVERALL: Another well above average double IPA from victory. This has a lot of hoppy acidity and citrus flavor, and an aroma that was the highlight of the drinking experience. Worthy.

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!
