Bottle best by September something-th 2014. Served in an IPA glass, reviewed 4/10/14.

A - Light amber, one finger head and solid lacing.

S - Moderate tropical fruit and pine.

T - Juicy citrus hop profile with a solid pine bitterness.

M - Milky, moderate body, great carbonation.

O - Flavorful and drinkable IPA. Low alcohol presence. Just had it back to back with Jai Alai, super similar just a bit more pine, alcohol, and body.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. The minimal head that is produced fades rather quickly leaving only a slight ring accompanied by substantial lacing. Resulting color is a medium gold that is wonderfully opaque. Aroma is mostly true to form: Flowery and bold. I did note hints of burnt toast which was not expected but neither was it deterring. Outstanding taste that leaves zero doubt that you are experiencing a hearty double IPA... Very bold. Mouth feel is obvious and lingers. This double IPA outshines its beloved predecessor - Hop Wallop - while not losing any of Wallop's appealing characteristics. The hop blend used is outstanding and is balanced to near perfection. Bonus points to Victory for its creative labeling.

Thanks to Jake and Mike for this one

App- In the glass with some light behind it, this seems more like a liquid sunset. Orange and yellows and gold dance in the glass. More dense at the top with a lighter bulb behind it. A nice 2 finger soft white capped head.

Smell- To me this had a lot going on. The tropical fruits, the mix of musty and dry hops a little earthy as well. A strong aroma of the alcohol from the 8%.

Taste- I enjoyed it but I think too many hops were used. I think that its a bit too much in one beer. The 8% isnt smooth to me. Its a bit grainy and too much alcohol behind it. Taste isnt there with a bit of a unique rind like orange/tangering/grapefruit flavor.

Mouth- A solid medium bodied beer with a medium carbonation level. Slightly sweet residual sugars from the fruited hops.

Drink- It was good, above average but didnt knock my socks off. Would drink again though.
