look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours a nice gold color with a 2 finger foamy white head that lingers for a while and leaves moderate lacing. Very nice clarity.

Smell- I get some bitter grapefruit, a bit of lemon and pine in the background. Also get a bit of a catty smell in there.

Taste- Nicely balanced. Some bitterness on the initial sip that turns sweet upon swallowing. Again some grapefruit and lemon zest, a bit of caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel- Good body and carbonation for the style. Leaves a nice slick mouthfeel, not overly drying.

Overall- Pretty nice DIPA, would like a bit more hoppiness in the flavor but still good and very nicely balanced.

4.06/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Like all Double IPA I compare it to the respectable and classic Pliny the elder but still, my mind still open to any ipa that could top it. (possibly heady topper) . Great IPA on a humid hot day, exceptional bitterness, lovely citrus taste, and finish nicely with light malt tasty. I think its a lil heavier than pliny

Appearance - hazy orange yellow brass color

Aroma - strong citrus note of grapefruit, pine, and hops

Taste - Amazing, great amount of citrus, grapefruit, pine, hops bitterness, light malt

Overall great beer yet pretty close... outstanding and lovely to drink in a hot day.. going to be one of my go to IPA. surprisingly an outstanding beer by Victory Brewing Co.
