Pours shiny golden, but hazy, with a nice white head that pops off soon enough, leaving a sticky messy lace.
Lots of pine resin in the smell, lime, grapefruit, very faint caramel sweetness. A bit straightforward but really intense.
Hops surprise right from the start, with a nice clean leafiness from the get go. Citrus mostly, with great grapefruit, but there's also some sweet-acidic orchard fruit, like a bit of green apple, some unripe apricot and some faint Chinese plum. Some light crackery malts with just a splash of caramel, but then the pine resin and spruce tips get all up in your face. Big hoppy finish, strong and flavourful, spicy leafiness, some dankness, a bit of grassiness too. Hops and hops and hops, and very bitter, dry finish.
Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, "wet", splashing ho(/a)ppiness all over the palate. Really clean hoppy aftertaste.
A great DIPA, extremely refreshing, with an easily ignorable alcohol content and tons of hops. Great craftmanship, need more Victory Brewing in my life.
