Victory Hop Wallop

CIMG3672

This big IPA features imported German malts and American whole flower hops. Their website doesn’t get more specific than that, but I’m sure the hops come from Washington!

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 8.5% ABV. Pennsylvania.

Yellow in color with a little bit of suspended sediment, decent white head.

Very, very hoppy nose. Lots of pine resin here with nothing more than a hint of citrus and grain.

Nothing wrong with the mouthfeel. Decent medium body.

Uhh yeah, this is hoppy. The pine just destroys the palate, again a tad bit of citrus and a little malty grain. Go grab some grass clippings, squeeze some lemon on there and put that in your mouth. Yep, this is bitter city, and it doesn’t leave the palate. The bitter pine just hangs on for dear life and it hangs on forever.

If you want hops, look no further. If you want balance and complexity, look somewhere else. 85 points.
