Bottle courtesy of MMBrew. No discernible date on the bottle, but I know it's fresh.
A: Pours a hazy golden with 1 finger of fluffy white head. Moderate sticky lacing is left down the side of the glass.
S: Super juicy citrus hop character overrides malt sweetness. A little earthiness, but mostly this is just a huge, juicy citrus bomb.
T/M: As expected, this is a juicy brew, full of citrusy hop character. Mild flavors of bready malt sneak through leading into a subtle bitter finish. Not a whole lot of sweetness in this IPA, but the citrus character helps keep this from being overwhelmingly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, with plenty of carbonation giving a prickliness to the sip and allowing the beer to foam when agitated.
O: Very good. I don't know if I've liked anything I've had from Victory as much as I've liked this. This isn't really anything super special, but it's a great option if you're looking for a DIPA.

4.33/5 rDev +1.2%

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.
Pours a nice hazy golden color with a small but fairly thick head. Very good lacing.
Smells like citrus. Lots of grapefruit on the nose. Subdued malt smells as well, very faint.
Taste is nice and hoppy. Good citrus flavor from the hops. Not overpoweringly hoppy, but still very hoppy. The hops are somewhat made milder by a slight maltiness. Maybe even some less acidic fruit taste as well.
As far as mouthfeel goes, this beer was much creamier than I was expecting. With as much grapefruit as it had in the nose I expected a very crisp IPA. Not gonna lie, I'm a big fan of malty beers, so I loved the mouthfeel.
Very good beer.
