A. Light amber to dark straw appearance with a white, puffy two finger head. Textbook appearance.

S. Resiny, flowery, piney, citrusy goodness. Damn!

T. Pungent, somewhat dank hops melded into a well balanced, bready malt base. Hints of citrus and grapefruit linger on the the nicely bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Invites you back quickly for another sip.

M. Very nice creaminess with good carbonation.

O. Standing out with a new beer in the DIPA category is no simple task. Victory has done it with DW. This is a well crafted beer - one that will be in my fridge year round.

The beer poured a straw yellow to gold with a huge pillowy white head with good retention and lacing. It was slightly hazy as there were bits of sediment in the bottom of my glass, but nothing like that detracts from a beer in my book. The aroma was full of dank tropical fruit hops with a hint of peach underneath. The taste was a full hop explosion that started with the tropical fruitiness and dank tones that melded into citrus notes that ended in bitter prickly pine that danced on my palate and lingered between tastes. This was definitely a big aromatic and multidimensional Double IPA that was easily drinkable and a well executed beer. Very fruity and very balanced.
