4.6/5 rDev +7.2%
Pours a light golden orange, hazy with a sugar white head that dissipates slowly.
Smells of citrus and grapefruit hops, some floral elements as well, with a bit of honey sweetness. Bright and fruity.
The taste is of both floral and fruity hops interlaced, followed by pine freshness. Runs a nice balanced gamut of hop flavors over rich honey and biscuit malts.
Medium to full body with fluffy carbonation.
A top notch IPA, something of a sleeper hit in my opinion. I'd put this one up with Zombie Dust and Hopslam any day.

12 oz. poured a little below cellar temp into tulip glass
A - Light yellow/orange color and very cloudy with visible particles. Beautiful pearly white head that does a lot of lacing
S - Amazing smell, tropical with some pineapple and passion fruit
T - Truly amazing balance of bitters and malts, though the hops do come over much stronger as is obvious with most DIPAs. Tastes like tropical grapefruits, and I love the hop resin
M - Perfect mouth feel with good carbonation and a great body, no wateriness at all
O - Fantastic beer, surprised that it outdid Victoria's Hop Ranch for me, Highly recommended beer.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden/yellow with a fluffy three-finger head of snow white foam with great retention. One of the lightest colored DIPA's I've seen. Epic lacing.
S - Powerful aroma of grapefruit, earthy hops, tropical fruits, pine, and butterscotch.
T - Candied malt sweetness meets tongue peeling hops! Lots of elements from the nose here; grapefruit, mango, pine, butterscotch, etc, but much more dank and herbal; dare I say almost "weed" like. Some grass notes in the mid-palate. Very lush and juicy. ABV well hidded. Delicious.
M - Full bodied with prickly carbonation, which makes for a stunning delivery system for the flavor. Finishes "wet", but doesn't stray one bit into anything "syrupy". Hard to imagine an improvement here.
O - Stellar. Immediately wished I had another. A great DIPA from a great brewery, and a definite rebuy.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- a beautiful nearly clear goldenrod with a small white cap of a head. Laces surprisingly well.
S- Orange, Grapefruit, and BIG wallop of peach. Some crackery malt is detectable
T- Fantastic. Big notes of Grapefruit, Orange and peach. A resious finish, with a touch of pine on the end. Bitterness comes on at the end and balances the fairly big sweetness.
M- Slightly syrupy medium body. Carbonation is very active on the palette.
O- A fantastic offering from Victory, and I'm very glad they're a local brewery for me. World Class.
