    An IPA called Hop Wallop better bring it. Victory's IPA offers a gorgeous hazy gold color and sticky white head. Lots of citrus in the smell. Tons of fresh citrusy hops complemented by lots of piney hops. And so bitter don't be surprised if you pucker! Not much of a malt flavor here at all, but wow does that dry hop bite linger. Very subtle buttered toast, too. Interesting.

    Hop heads, enjoy! If you want a beer to slap you with hops, you've found it.

    Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Ommegang tulip. Enjoy by Nov 29 2011. Just read the Legend of 'Hop' Wallop on the label. Refers to hops as green gold, otherwise I'm not really sure what it's talking about.

    Appearance: Not a great head, but man, what a nice golden color! What points I deduct for a mediocre head, I reimburse for the beautiful hue. Looks like a nice pilsner.

    Smell: Dare I say award winning?! Fantastic smell of citrusy hops - very pungent.

    Taste: This beer is awesome. Huge citrus flavor. I'm digging it. I like that I can't taste the alcohol in this 8.5% ABVer.

    Mouthfeel: Somehow clean and smooth, yet still manages to coat my entire mouth. I can feel my tonsils pucker.

    Drinkability: Based on the ABV, I'd say sessionability is limited, but this beer hides the alcohol very well. I'm on number two... and I'll probably stop here.

    Overall: A great DIPA! I liked this a lot more than the Victory Hop Devil I tried a while back. Plus, Horace 'Hop' Wallop freaks me out slightly less than the Hop Devil lettuce guy I still see in my nightmares...

    looks light, but dont judge a book by its cover. Nice floral notes and intense hoppiness. A typical Victory beer that explodes in flavor. A nice "one-up" in hops from Hopdevil. really enjoyed but could only have a few at 8.5% ABV!

    Poured into a pint glass this beer is bright golden yellow that shines in the light. The head is bone white and two inches high. After settling a moderate amount of lace is left around my glass. The aroma is super sour fruit.Pine sap and juicy grapefruit is dominant. It's a hop boquet for sure. The flavor is super hoppy. Grassy pine and bitter fruit. A hint of buttered bread comes in at the finish. Medium body with a rather dry finish. Moderate carbonation. For a hop bomb this is extremly drinkable. I would love to sit back with a sixer of this.
