Tonight I had Victory Hop Ticket #2 (Hoppy Wheat) on tap at Beer Run in Charlottesville. I liked it quite a bit while it was cold, but it lost a little something as it warmed. It was amber/yellow with an average head, the aroma was apples and grassy hops. Buttery. wheat-beer malt and pineapple in the flavor, a mild hop punch in the finish. Those fruit notes weren't as distinct after the beer got closer to room temperature, and it lost some of it's appeal.
