Beer Review: Victory 21st Birthday IPA 6.1% ABV

Victory Brewing Company and their 21st IPA, an American IPA that comes in at a nice 6.1% ABV and an IBU level of 80. This one does well with offering the dry and crisp finish often expected from an IPA and as far as the hoppiness and bitterness that is often sought, there is no lack of that here. Oh, it’s your birthday with this one, check out my video here to see my other thoughts and if is indeed a celebration.

Brewer Notes:

We were so impressed with this year’s harvest in Yakima we decided to brew 2017’s anniversary brew with our favorite hops from the trip: Roy Farms Chinook, Roy Farms Centennial, and Black Star Ranch Mosaic.

Composition

Malt: Pilsner, Carapils

Hops: Chinook, Centennial, Mosaic - all 2016 fresh harvested

ABV: 6.10%

Flavor: Aggressive kettle and dry-hopping will showcase notes of pine, resinous hop character, and tropical fruit. Slight haze.
