Poured at Opening Tap at Philly Beer Week.

Pours a clear golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is astounding. Tons and tons of apricots, peaches, fresh summer fruits, slight pine, piles of citrus.

Absolutely floored by the taste. Mirrors the aroma. Blown away by the combination of fruitiness, pine, grapefruit, low bitterness, huge bite. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.

The most perfect DIPA I have ever had.

Liberty Bell Ringer by Victory Brewing is perhaps the finest IPA I have ever tasted. Was at Prime 16 in Orange CT and ordered a number of beers on tap during the evening. The last beer I ordered was the Liberty Bell Ringer IPA. Poured a beautiful orange, yellow, gold with about 2 cm of creamy head. Smell of roasted hops, and a touch of citrus. First sip had notes of smooth grapefruit and citrus. I barely noticed the high alcohol content which was surprising. Mouthfeel was hoppy, and smooth throughout. Overall this IPA truly surprised me. Looking forward to taking a road trip to Victory Brewery to try their other offerings.

A: Pours a golden yellow - on the lighter side. Decent head at pour and good lacing.

S: Piney hop aroma - strong and sharp.

T: Pine and fruit bitterness up front lasts throughout the taste. However somewhere in the middle to back the fruit comes alive - apricot and tropical fruit. Mango. Really different and nice.

M: Good carbonation. Bitter and light yet lots of body.

O: Hope to see this one again.
