Growler poured into pint glass
A: Rich golden hue – plenty of carbonation that rushes to populate a clean bright white head that has moderate retention. Looks like its light and fresh – much more translucence than the Hop Ranch, could be attributable to the serving style difference. Lacing is weak.
S: DANK, hoppy, citrus, earthy and a bit of pine or woody related notes that give a unique dryness. The citrus is dominant and very floral, lots of lemon and other fresh aromas – smells a lot like spring or a warm rainy morning. The wood profile is a mixture of what smells like pine and spruce – maybe cedar
T: Floral and citrus notes upfront with a lot of tree/wood character that make it somewhat dry but crisp as well. Fruit flavor is mellow and contributes to a mild sweetness – grapefruit, pineapple, MANGO, and lemon. Spices roll off the palate imparting their distinct presence (ginger among others) while enhancing the flowery hops. A multilayered flavor journey that ends with a light and pleasant sweetness produced from the blended fruit and a tenuous sugariness.
M: Medium bodied, with medium carbonation – aftertaste is dry but still with complex flavor, slightly sweet maybe from orange peel.
O: Impressive, my favorite DIPA to date. Surprisingly easy to drink for the style and the ABV – very well balanced and quite refreshing. A lot of different flavors contribute to a deliciously cohesive taste that I plan to drink whenever I see it available.
I am continually impressed with Victory’s offerings and glad to support a local brew that is this delectable.
Serving type: growler
