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.

Light blonde. Full of life. About one finger head, but faded somewhat quickly.

Probably one of the most interesting beers I've ever smelled in my entire life: onion, garlic, citrus.

Contrary to the smell description, or perception on my behalf, the taste was quite refreshing: citrus up front, and onion in the back.

Again, the best way for me to describe the mouthfeel would be, refreshing. Medium carbonation, with little aftertaste.

Overall, this is one of the more unique Imperial's I'ver ever had the opportunity to taste. Hell, it even goes perfectly with my goat cheese, salami and vienna bread spread! Not something I would go out of my way to acquire, but definitely a solid beer. I'd say at least try it once.
