look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear orange copper. Head is off-white, creamy, and leaves notches of lacing. Drops to a small cap after a minute or two. Moderate retention for the small cap.

Smell: Leafy citrus. Pithy bitterness. Grapefruit flesh with some tropical undertones. Nice balance of caramel malts. Mild biscuity malt undertone. Vaguely earthy and herbal as well. Oily hops. Mild toasted aroma. Sweet and fruity.

Taste: Oily grapefruit rind. Some backing earthy hops. Sweet biscuits and caramel malts. More of that leafy thing from the nose. Nice toasted edge with some roasted character rounding it out. Nice balance. Building pithy bitterness lingers but never becomes abrasive. Some tangerine, pine, mint, the usual heavy hop flavors, but minor. Vaguely spicy. It's all there. Malts are a nice sweet compliment.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, slick, and easy drinking. Moderate carbonation on a medium body. Pro-level.

Overall: My preferred Victory IPA.

Big and in your face without feeling brash. Lots of hop depth with some great backing malt. Nicely drinkable with a lingering bitterness.
