Victory Vital IPA
Victory Vital IPA is an American IPA, 6.5% ABV. This can has an enjoy by date of 2/18/16.
This pours with an exceptionally light golden/yellow color and is absolutely crystal clear. Big white head on top with outstanding retention. There is a distinct character to a lot of Victory beers that I taste in many of their offerings. I feel like the have been breaking away from that “Victory flavor” a bit lately, but this new IPA has it big time. Spicy is the best way I can describe the aroma, there is a bit of citrus as well but it has that classic Victory spiciness that I can’t get past. The taste has a huge amount of the same spiciness, but a bit more comes through with it. A little citrus, a bit of grassiness and some dry cracker malt. There is also a strong amount of dry bitterness on the finish.
This is a solid IPA that tastes like something you might expect from Victory. If you are a fan of what they do this one should fall right in line.
