On-tap 2/22/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a nice blend of fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of citrus and caramel. Then an earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good 2IPA to drink for a long time.

Had on tap at Brouwers. Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear orange, rather bright, with a small white head which is foamy. Nice head retention with pretty lacing down the sides.

S: Some citrus fruits upfront, lots of orange and orange peel. There is a bit of bready malt and a little sugary sweetness as well

T: Some bitterness right away with pine upfront which leads to some intense citrus fruit - mostly orange, but a bit of pineapple and grapefruit. Light caramel and grainy malt.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. ABV hidden very well.

O: One of the best I have had from Victory. A smooth DIPA.

Had on tap at my local watering hole. Served in a pint glass.

A-Nice light orange color. Sticky. Great one inch white head. Leaves lacing all over the glass as I drink.

S- Great aroma from this beer. Pine, citrus, hops.

T- Delicious. Citrus, pine, hops, sticky to my tongue. Bitter. Hops.

M- Loved this mouthfeel. Sticky, medium feel. Made my mouth pucker.

O- Very solid Double IPA. Not the best I've had but just solid all around.
