Victory Agave IPA With Grapefruit
Victory Agave IPA With Grapefruit is an American IPA, 7% ABV. Enjoy by date of May 22, 2016, bottle sent for review. This is the first in the new Blackboard Series in which Victory brews with “deliciously fresh ingredients we are known for”. Most of these offerings will be draft only, but this is one of two that will be bottled and distributed.
This is one of the palest and clearest IPA’s I have ever seen, the lightest of golden colors with a good head to start that settles away to a ring before long. A bit of an odd aroma of fresh grapefruit and dirty grass. So odd. The taste brings a blast of ruby red grapefruit right out of the gate. This flavor really dominates the taste, but it is complimented by some simple sugar like sweetness that I’m guessing is being added by the agave. Some citrus hops eventually find their way onto the palate along with a mild hop bitterness on the finish.
This is a fun IPA that is strong on the fresh grapefruit flavor.
