12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick 1.5 finger off-white head. Really good head retention.

Aroma is full of citrus hops backed up by a little bit of malt underneath. Hops really overpower everything, though and are very inviting.

The flavor really pulls the malt and hops together with lots of citrus up front carried by some toasted caramel underneath. A little bready malt as well. Bitterness ends up being on the light to moderate side and I really wish there was a little more malt. The beer finishes relatively clean and slightly sticky.

Overall, another great beer from Victory. A great summer beer and one that is highly sessionable.
