look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A - Semi-cloudy gold/yellow with a finger of off white head. A thin head stays for a long time.
S - Big juicy and citrusy hops dominate the aroma. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and a bit of caramel.
T - Again, lots of citrus hops in the flavor. Grapefruit is the main flavor, followed by pineapple, orange, and caramel malt. A good amount of bitterness that is balanced by some of the caramel/fruit sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden.
M - Moderate body with moderate-to-high carbonation. Nothing special here, but it complements the flavors nicely.
O - I was very impressed by this brew. It's got all the citrus hop flavors that I love and a great balance between sweetness and bitterness. Great job, Victory

Pours a goldish-orange with a big white foam head that dissipates quickly. A small amount of lacing around the edges.
Lots of citrus hops in the aroma. Bursting with grapefruit, lemon, and orange. A little bit of sweetness going along with the cirrus. Nose finishes up with a burst of pine that is very strong.
The taste follows the nose. Lots of hops right up front, followed by the same bursting grapefruit and a hint of the lemon, with a touch of mango and possibly peach. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Piney resin comes with the aftertaste. For such a hoppy beer, this is shockingly easy to drink.
Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. The pine causes a bit of a resinous quality, making it a bit sticky going down.
Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA, once of my favorites so far. Despite the hoppiness, it is incredibly easy to drink, which could make it dangerous.
