The Vital IPA from Victory Brewing Company is an interesting little cracker of a beer! Brewed with a malt bill of robust German malts, this IPA is a bit of a crossover between a crisp, refreshing German helles and a hoppy American IPA. The hop aromas and flavours are not the most prominent characteristic of this beer. Instead, notes of grain, straw and a bit of spice are the most apparent both on the nose and the palate. Bold and bitter, crisp and refreshing this IPA is complex and satisfying.
