From a bottle into a pilsner glass.

A: gold with orange tint in certain light. Light colored head with thick lace covering the glass.

S: grapefruit, hops and citrus rind.

T: an absolute hop bomb on this one. Not sure there is anything else to say. If you like your beer to taste like bitter hops and bitter hops only go for this one. Fortunately I happen to like that flavor profile.

M: easy drinking and very refreshing even with the bitterness.

O: one fabulous beer. Absolutely world class!

Have heard great things about this beer. Decided to finally try it. Here goes:

A: Splendid. Pours a clear orange with a massive head. Tons of lacing - and I mean tons of it. The protein content is undoubtedly great. Can't wait to try it.

S: Fantastic. Lots of Pacific NW hops. Can smell grapefruit, lemon, orange, and great helpings of mango and tropical fruit. Emphasis on the mango and tropical fruit - reminds me of Lagunitas Sucks and Stone Go To.

T: Very good but somewhat bummed. Great hop flavor, but the malt is somewhat muted. I typically like a good balance of malt and hops in my DIPA's. Oh well, it's still superb. The taste of the hops follows the nose.

M: OK, somewhat light, especially for a DIPA.

O: A very good DIPA. Will be having again and again. Great job, Victory!
