Mighty awful... easily my least favorite beer from Victory.

Smell is one step above a port o John, flavor is astringent hops with zero malt balance, mouthfeel is somehow thin for a DIPA, and aftertaste is a brash herbal.

I have no clue how this beer is currently ranked over 4.0 for this style. Feel terrible giving Victory this low of a score, but maybe I just got a tainted 6 pack.

Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit and sweetish malts. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, malts, slight sweetness/honey and a long and slightly tart/spicy hop finish.

Good IPA. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy yellow color and a medium size white head with average retention and some lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of hops and some grapefruit. Taste is bitter, hoppy with a little grapefruit and biscuity malt. Mouthfeel is crisp and rich. nicely bitter but with a good balance between malt and hops. Also some balance between he dryness of the biscuity malt and some resinous hops. I ENJOYED THIS ONE.

Picked up a single from TW Arrowhead on 12-17-17 for $2.79. Enjoy by 28APR2018. Stored in the beer fridge since purchase.

Beer poured golden orange with a very nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is tropical and citrus goodness.

Taste is a very nice easy drinking blend of grapefruit, orange, papaya over an ample malt body. Finish is very light rind.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall i really liked this beer, very easy drinking with the flavor profiles i enjoy very much. Cheers!

12 oz. Bottle
Enjoy By: 28 Apr 2018

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice dark golden orangey color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves behind some nice sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Flavor with notes of tangerines, spices, hay, pine, white pepper, papaya, mango, resin, honey, toasted malts and lots of guava and stone fruit. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with appropriate to mild carbonation. Alcohol of 8.3% is slightly felt.
Spicy and flowery DIPA with some hop tropical flavors. Although it has a great complexity it is somewhat confusing.

Not as strong of an aroma as I would expect from a double IPA, but has a nice bite in the after taste.

Light yellow orange in appearance, smell is light tropical and pine..taste is all citrus with some nice hoppy undertones. Medium carbination, the body is a bit thicker and syrupy than i see for this type of beer, but it doesnt take away from it all..another nice offering from victory!

DATE: February 24, 2018... OCCASION: well-fed after enjoying Blue and Gold dinner #4...GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... excited about this one, as I hadn't heard of its release--and then, bam, it's available for grunts at the local Liquor Factory... pours from said grunt create a lightly effervescent, light, murky yellow body... it's head froths and laces with a confident ring that belies its hefty ABV... solid though not spectacular... intense mango, pineapple and papaya, tinged with apple and tart citrus... pretty uniform in its power and profile, though the caramel does support ... the first sip is blissfully bitter, with an IBU count that probably sits in the 80s (actually 70, upon fact-checking)... hits the teeth hard, acquiesces through the mouth, and remains a friendly hop presence at the throat, providing an experience worthy of remembering... citric explosion frames the flavor, with mango and papaya blazing its trail... the hop-forward taste allows for some caramel and bread malts... a fantastic experience of robust fruitiness, with the power of Victory again commanding attention... a winner, and an enjoyable beer among its style...
