Not sure why all the high scores. very pale. taste is chemically and rancis. I've had other Victory beers which I love. Not sure what happened here....
aroma is not off-putting
but flavor certainly is....

Smell: Citrus, not much to speak of
Taste: Crisp, almost woodsy
Feel: Biting
Overall: Starts out pleasant then abruptly turns bitingly bitter. Not a fan

Was really excited to try this one after being disappointed by the Hop Ranch. Unfortunately I didn't find this one much better. Tasted and smelled a little too much like an sweaty gym sock. I don't get the hype, but different people have different tastes, especially for IPA's. I must just be more of a West Coast IPA guy.

After reading reviews of this beer, I feel like I'm drinking a different beer. The aroma reminds me of underarm sweat, really off putting. The same quality comes across in the taste. Victory usually makes a pretty decent beer but I think they missed the mark on this one. I wouldn't buy this again. I bought a 4 pack and it's going to be a chore to polish it off. Really disappointing beer.
