Had a growler filled at Consumers in Orchard Park.Poured a brilliant copper witha sticky cloud-like slightly off white head,a full ring of lace behind was left behind.Intense sticky hops in the nosse,alot of tropical fruit mixed in with pine resin,sweet alcohol a big caramel malt as well.A burst of fruity hops at first sip with the hop flavor profile more fruity and floral than bitter,sweet stinging alcohol stnds up well to the hops,caramel sweetness is noticable.A big fruity hop attack,a great DIPA wich isn't to sweet.

A: This pours out a deep orange color. Two fingers egg shell white head. Sticky lacing bits are left on the glass. Leaves some sheeting.

S: Really nice nose on this guy. Over ripe peach, mango, papaya. Juicy hops. Different then other Victory IPAs. Less malty.

T: Right on the tip of the tongue, really piney bitterness. This continues to the mid palate. Some malts are there, but it still leans more to the hop bomb. Dry bitter close. The ABV is hidden really well, but after a growler split between two people....I felt it a little bit.

M: Medium bodied. Nice round IPA flavors.

The standard that Victory has settled on vs the R, S, and C specific versions. The hops in this version are subject to change based on availability. Having tried this several times the hops are always fresh. Piney and sweet. Some sweet malt flavor - brown sugar - on the backend. Pours amber to orange in the glass with a good head and impressive lacing on the glass. Overall a great brew by Victory.
