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.

Bottle from ABV.

A mildly hazy pale yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose is dominated by a big spicy and fruity hop character, pungent and piney with melon, grapes, citrus, a touch of grass - pretty darn solid! The Mosaic hops have a beautiful bouquet, delicate and floral. Malt character is minimal.

The palate opens with a fruity and floral blend of jasmine, melon, grapes, citrus (navel oranges, some grapefruit), lemon verbena and a touch of lemon mint, Creamy on the palate with soft, supple carbonation, this beer is medium-light in carbonation. The mid-palate continues to focus on the fruity aspects, deemphasizing the bitterness. The finish is mildly oily, mildly resiny and mostly fruity with a moderate bitterness, bright and refreshing. A shade grassy towards the finish. Almost west coast like in execution, this is fantastic stuff. .
