Enjoy by 01/2014. This was only bottled maybe 3 weeks ago.
A: Pours a nice clear amber. Good sized fluffy light tan head. Head fades slowly with good retention. Fairly thick chunks of lacing everywhere.
S: Pungent and sweet tropical fruits. Orange, mango, tangerine, pineapple primarily I'd say. Maybe a touch of spicy pine when swirled?
T: Yup, more tropical fruits. Sharp, pungent, bright tropical fruits. Pretty much everything mentioned in the aroma but with a substantial pine element and the trademark dank/garlicy character of citra as well. Nice sweet caramel malt to back it up. Not overly bitter, oddly enough. Just huge and delicious hop flavor. I keep waiting for the big wave of bitterness in the finish but it's surprisingly mild.
M: Medium bodied, smooth.
O: One hell of a DIPA. Really showcases citra (I assume) in a big, big way without it being an unbalanced mess. Surprisingly drinkable too. No easy task. Well done, Victory.

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.
Pours a nice hazy golden color with a small but fairly thick head. Very good lacing.
Smells like citrus. Lots of grapefruit on the nose. Subdued malt smells as well, very faint.
Taste is nice and hoppy. Good citrus flavor from the hops. Not overpoweringly hoppy, but still very hoppy. The hops are somewhat made milder by a slight maltiness. Maybe even some less acidic fruit taste as well.
As far as mouthfeel goes, this beer was much creamier than I was expecting. With as much grapefruit as it had in the nose I expected a very crisp IPA. Not gonna lie, I'm a big fan of malty beers, so I loved the mouthfeel.
Very good beer.
