the latest in a cool series of brews, a black ipa, super foamy and heady and bubbly and alive, nice to have an upbeat take on the style for spring. dark dark brown in color, but not all that thick, lighter in body than others, with a cool chocolate malt nose and not much more than a light bittering hop, maybe some tangerine type strain in there someplace, but its real subtle on the citrus. i like the lighter body a lot, but i am missing some hop flavor in this one. its balanced nicely, but in a series called hop ticket, id like a little more hops. there is a strange mustiness to it, dank basement sort of thing, chalky feeling but almost mildewy, not all bad, but certainly weird in a beer that is otherwise quite light and delicate for the style. i admire victory greatly for their ability to make their mark on almost any style, and while this is a pretty solid beer, the factors making it unique seem a little out of place. good not great for me, but curious sometimes stands in for good in my book, i just like to be challenged.
