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)

Poured into my new favorite glass, the Newburyport Brewing can-shaped glass.

Pours pale yellow, a little dirty with some floaties, just how I like my big IPAs. The color has a near-glow to it, very pretty.

Aroma is a mix of fruits, fresh and past-ripe, like a fruit stand. More melon than anything, but very pleasant.

Spectacular flavor with this one. This is the first bottled brew that I've had that captures some of Hill Farmstead's magical IPA combination of super pale brews that mix equal parts earthiness, grassiness, citrus, and bitterness. This really tastes like a HF collab. A wonderfully clean yet complex beer, which features biting orange and mango on a bed of grass and dandylion bitterness.

The mouthfeel is nice, yet a touch suprisingly sweet and sticky. Still nice.

Wow, blown away by this beer. I haven't partaken in Victory's beers enough lately, methinks. I'll dive on this beer whenever it's available.
