Hop Wallop by Victory Brewing Company

It is hard for me to believe that at this time next week, my journey will be over. It will come to an end on November 28th but until then I have, including today’s beer, 6 left.  Lets get drinking!!!

Beer #360 is Hop Wallop by Victory Brewing Company.  This American Double or Imperial IPA has an ABV of 8.5% and is brewed in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.

Into another Pennsylvania brewers, Sly Fox, pint glass this went.  The color of this beer was a clear orange or golden amber.  It had a very thin white head. The nose smelled heavy and syrupy with grapefruit and bready malts.  Hops up front with grapefruit & orange peel (basically a nice citrus fruity overall flavor) and then it gets malty and sweet with caramel mostly.  The body is pretty heavy, sticky & syrupy…it coats as it soothes…and the carbonation is pretty low. Nice and smooth with moderate bitterness coupled with the ABV hidden really well, makes this very drinkable.

I make no bones about…IPAs and DIPAs are probably my favorite styles of beer and this didn’t disappoint.  An excellent brew from Victory!

And then there were 5…
