Pours a beautiful amber with a just off-white head, leaves great lacing on the way down.

Smell is very nice, pretty hoppy and citrusy, exactly what you'd expect for an IPA, with some piney notes.

Hits the mouth fantastic, really nice flavor, especially in conjunction with smell. Lip smacking. Aftertaste was too bitter for my tastes though, seemed like a bit of overklll.

Another fine Victory beer, I would definitely buy again even if the aftertaste pulled down the overall experience. Would definitely try it on tap if I could find it in my neck of the woods.

Copper coloured , clear, with full head, lot of carbonation. Pronounced hoppy bitterness in a classical way (reminiscent of Sierra Nevada) before all the over-the-top super-charged beers. Nice finish with lingering hoppiness. Excellent in the middle of the range bitter beers.

Legit IPA. Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious.
