Had this on tap at the Bermuda for 4 bucks for the pint.

A - Pours a very light amber brown with a 1/2 inch of sticky white head. Clear sign its very hoppy with a nice layer of lacing each sip.
S - Not as crazy hopped as the DIPA I had but it's on par with every other session IPA I had.
T - Very good the pale malts do mesh well with the hops as vivid as they are really never become very bitter. Finish is crisp.
M - Light to medium, on par with the session style.

Overall I would say Victory did pretty well with this catergory but I still think Lagunitas has the best hoppy session in my opinion. Went well with the stuffed JalapeƱo's I had.

Pours a pale golden yellow. White frothy head leaves a sheet of lace. Aroma of zesty herb, grapefruit, mild floral. In the taste, solid bitterness, a bit of grapefruit, grass and lemon. The hops are complimented by a pale, biscuity malt profile. Lighter bodied with a good level of carbonation, finishes a bit loose. Overall, this is a good beer, and highlights the hops well.
