From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This beefy beast of an imperial IPA pours a
golden amber with a moderate head of white foam that subsides to a thick ring,
thin light pool, and displays some nice light lacing. Nose of heavy pine, heavy
citrus fruits of grapefruit, lemon, and mango with heavy wet grassy hop notes
that mingle with a heavy honey malt note. Flavors surpass the nose with a sweet
honey caramel malt that is put through the paces with an onslaught of heavy citrus
flavors of pineapple, mango, wet sticky pine hops, lemon zest, and a touch of peach
with light floral notes and bitter sticky hop notes on the finish. Nice mouth feel--
medium high carbonation, medium sticky hop body, and a heavy handed pine
finish that is sticky and dank.

Overall, while note my standard cup of ale it is a decent brew.

Cheers

Meager head, normal pour barely gets enough to temporarily cover the surface, straightforward white as it lasts, wispy lacing which as spotted as it is, sticks well. Light haze to the golden liquid, dense weave of bubbles, slowly rise upwards. Wonderful lift to the nose, tangerine to lemon citrus, honey, dank and wet leafy matter, pine and rose petals, coal tar, substantial amount of peach, apricot, mango fruit scents. Medium-bodied, even with a credible level of dankness, pine and earthiness it has good flow and never bogs down as it crosses the palate. Orange marmalade, pine, rose petals and tar, has elements which both lift and anchor. Carbonation is steady but not necessarily refreshing. Here the peach, mango, pineapple fruit on the dull side. Stays nicely wet and the strong herbaceousness does not dry it out. Allowing for the flow, there is a good deal of sticky residue left on the tongue as it finishes. Strikes one as monochromatic and you wish it reach into the higher register.

Pours a slightly hazy straw color with about a finger of head. The nose is super citrusy as is the flavor profile. The hop bitterness on the finish is more subtle than I expected from the makers f some damn hoppy (and tasty) beers.

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.
