Victory Anniversary 20 Experimental IPA joins the brewery’s lineup this month, as the brewery hits the 20 year mark. The brewery boasts that the “big party” will be in 2017, when Victory is finally “legal” to drink.
Victory Anniversary 20 Experimental IPA is “experimental” in the sense it features a fairly obscure hop (at least for now) – Idaho 7. From the potato state, which is incidentally the third largest hop grower in the U.S. The Idaho 7 hop hails from a part of the state dubbed ‘the shelf’, a remote location with perfect climate and soil for hop growth.
Anniversary 20 Experimental IPA, boasts complex fruity aromas of orange and apricot with hints of mildly astringent black tea-like characters as well as a pleasantly fresh, slightly pine herbal bouquet.
Victory Anniversary 20 Experimental IPA is now available in 12 ounce bottles and draft throughout the brewery’s entire 37 state footprint.
