Notes/Commercial Description:
Fully juicy in its citrus character with the pleasantly sharp, biting edges of tart fruit and bitterness, Hop Ranch Imperial India Pale Ale traces its roots to Victory’s Ranch series, a unique and comprehensive study of hops in which Brewmasters experimented with different hop varieties to showcase a range of flavor profiles and celebrate the nuances and distinctions in the resulting series’ recipes.

Mosaic hops and Hop #483 (Azacca)

3.9/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a cloudy pale straw with a finger of white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing behind. The nose has notes of piney hops and lemon. The flavor profile and body are quite light and refreshing. There is a pleasant and complex hoppy finish to this offering that is quite spicy. Anything that drinks this easy at 9% ABV is downright dangerous!

This strikes me as more of an imperial pils (an exceptional one) than a DIPA. It is quite tasty, but I like more discernible malt qualities to my DIPAs.

One final note: I’d really rather see an offering like this released in the summer when I’m looking for more tasty light-bodied beers than in the winter when full-bodied beers are what I crave.
