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.
