Victory Brewing No Brainer IPA
What the brewers say
Fruity and citrusy hops lead the way in this go-to, everyday IPA.
What our panel thought
Nuanced aroma—with hints of lemon, orange, passion fruit, pine, straw, and peach—is interesting and inviting. Flavor is fairly well-balanced and finishes dry and bitter, but not harsh, yet it lacks a bit of the depth that the aroma delivered. A touch of astringency on the back end.
What our editors thought
A tame, safe, and straightforward take on American IPA with a dialed-down bitterness and dialed-up fruity hops character. The nose is a touch musty, but the flavor steps up the fruit intensity.
