Poured bottle into glass. 8.7 % abv

Appearance- Pours a honey-like color yellow. Cloudy with a medium head that dissipates.

Smell- Fresh citrus aromas of orange and grapefruit dominate the smell. Quite floral.

Taste- The hop prescence is very strong as the bitterness is felt early in the flavor profile. It lasts all the way through. Some citrus undertones but not as many as the aforementioned smell would suggest. Some grassy notes from the malt fade into more hop flavor.

Mouthfeel- Much lighter in body than I would have thought, but still in the medium range. Extremely smooth.

Overall- One of the smoothest doubles I have ever tasted. Also lighter in color than many too. Plenty of flavor that transitions well. Victory has done it right again.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Hazy orange, really appealing. Raises 2 fingers of persistent head. Laces well.

Smells like a hop bomb...pineapple, grapefruit, piney notes. The freshness permeates the nose, makes me drool!

Crisp, acidic citrus hits you quickly. Like alcoholic pineapple juice. Then you get the caramel malty body and it finishes with a piney pop.

Beautifully carbonated, and really well put together. One of my favorite DIPAs. Worth picking some up! Drink it fresh!

Pours a hazy dark gold with a one finger white head, with good retention and lacing. the aroma has citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral and earthy hops.

The taste has a nice combination of sweetness and bitterness with citrus, citrus zest, caramel malt, and pine. There is no hint of alcohol in the taste, which is a plus.

Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Has a citrus and caramel malt aftertaste. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance.
