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.

Had a growler filled at Premier Gourmet this weekend....I love that place.Poured into an impy nonic a clear light to medium golden with a great looking blooming white head that left two multiple rings of lace as it settled into a frothy mass.Pine and grapefruit along with sugary sweetness in the nose,there is drunken fruit element to it.Fresh citric hops greet the taste buds that melds into a grassiness and then into a sweet dough caramel base,a sugary alcohol element is there but doesn't overpower the hops.I like it,top 5....not sure,but it kicks ass.

12oz bottle poured into Mr. Pint.
Appearance: A hazy, mostly translucent yellow with brisk bubbling action and a white head that leaves a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass as it slowly dies down.
Smell: Holy complex nose, Batman! Citrus, hops, pine, grass, grapefruit all just take their turn in blasting out for my enjoyment.
Taste: Very much reflects the nose. Nice, complex - and distinct - flavors centered around citrus, pine, grass, and hops hit pretty good.
Mouthfeel: Pretty crisp. A little bit of the pine lingers as an aftertaste.
Overall: Well, then. $9.45 for a 4 pack well spent!

4.15/5 rDev -3.3%
A: A light colored DIPA that is a deep golden beer with good clarity. The white head is quick to fade into a thin cap of soapy bubbles.
S: A strong citrus hops aroma that mostly has notes of grapefruit, pine, some pineapple and a fair amount of an herbal character. There is a light malt a sweetness and a low alcohol sweetness.
T: An aggressive hops bitterness and a very strong citrus hop flavors. The hop flavors are a lemon/lime, pine, some mango and little citrus zest. There is just enough malt for support and nothing more making for a very bitter balance. The finish is off-dry with a lingering, citrus hops flavor and bitterness. There is some herbal qualities to the hop flavor that is more apparent towards the finish.
M: A medium bodied beer with a light creaminess and a strong level of carbonation.
O: A very well crafted Double IPA that brings a ton of American citrus hops to the party. The entire focus and balance of the beer is out towards showcasing the hops.
