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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear mute pale orange. A small one finger bright white head that left fairly quickly but provided excellent lacing.

S: Very floral up front with a big bite of citrus. Some grapefruit and orange are there but also wilted flowers and a hint of spice and onion. An underlying bready malt is also present. Pretty complex yet very inviting.

T: Stop the presses! that is amazing. Mango and passionfruit with a citus bomb. Lemon peel, sweet orange and a character that reminds me of agave nectar. Tart grapefruit and a pungent floral flavor. Orange marmalade and preserves with a tease of sweet and tart pineapple. a finish of pine and lemon grass completes this massive, fantastic flavor.

M: Not much carbonation to speak of but a surprisingly light body. Very easy to drink. A slightly dry, floral pine finish.

O: This beer is fantastic. complex yet inviting. easy to drink but every sip brings something new. Victory has a real winner here. Awesome stuff. I'll be sure to pick up more! /96
