look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:

A; Dark honey colored. Sufficinet but non-impressive head, but leaves a nice sticky lacing.

S; NICE citrusy hops to the nose.

T: Very nice hoppy bite but just a bit bitter.

M: nicely done, not heavy but complex enough.

D: overall an IPA but not the best of them....

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Glassware: Chalice

*not drinking it as I write and no notes, so I am going on memory.*

Appearance: Hazy amber with a khaki-colored head that was fairly thick and hung around for awhile.

Smell: All hoppish (new word?) aromas. Floral, citrusy, piney, a little spicy... Refreshing and clean smell.

Taste: The smell leads you in... It is strong on the hop flavor. Though, there is plenty of depth to the taste. Lots of bitterness and earthiness and some citrus notes. Big flavor and stays interesting.

Mouthfeel: light to medium-bodied.

Overall: I have had this brew a few times and it has impressed me each time. I really enjoy it and will purchase in the future...often. Best (or my favorite) of the Victory brews except for maybe the Wild Devil.

This was just a very cool beer to see in Vienna.

A - Orange, amber, creamy head which left some nice lacing and lasted the entire beer

S - Pine, Citrus zest, hops, bit of burnt sugar

T - Right off the bat, hops and grapefruit rind and citrus zest, a bit of malt sweetness to balence it out and a clean crisp bitter finish

MD - Very nicely carbonated, smooth and creamy
