Man oh man. I have not had a DIPA surprise me so much since Lagunitas Sucks. What a great brew! My beer guy emailed me about this one and I dropped by Round Rock Specs to pick up a 4 pack at 9.99.

Nothing extraordinary about the look...fairly dull gold look, a little cloudy, but decent lacing throughout on this one.

Smell is super fresh pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and just a slight sweet malt presence. Even a bit of that "weed" smell that enhances a great DIPA. Good stuff here.

Taste matches aroma perfectly. Starts with a huge hop juice bang (perfect combo of citrus and pine) followed by a small amount of malt balance. The combo is nearly perfect. Truly reminds me of Sucks, but it's been a while since I've had that one.

Medium to light body, hides booze quite well...very dry. Wanting another sip immediately.

What a pleasant treat. I certainly hope it stays under the radar a bit so I can scoop up more fresh 4 packs at my leisure. This is easily my favorite Victory beer. Great job guys!

Hazy orange with thin white head, no lacing.

Pineapple, citrus and pines are dominant on the nose here. Very beautiful fruity aromas.

Nice citrus flavors, fruits and piney hops, with a medium body. The hops are not overwhelming, but are present.

I really enjoy the citrus and fruits here. Exactly what I want in an Imperial IPA.
