Taste: Spirits: On Tap: Victory Hop Wallop

Resinous hops ­provide the herbal edge and bitter bite that make beer so refreshing. Victory ­Brewing Company’s Hop ­Wallop, full of sappy green aromas with a hint of malty sweetness, celebrates the hops harvest. The first keg of this variation on an American Double IPA is slated to be tapped at the brewery’s on-site pub in Downingtown this November, but hopheads can also find a fix at University City’s World Cafe Live, or at Capone’s in East Norriton.
