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.

This beer looks like a pils and smells like one too just with some mild pine to liven it up. The taste is good but the flavors come off artificial, not very appealing. The best thing about this beer is the mouth feel, for 9% its light and actually refreshing.

Don't like the smell, but the taste far out ways it!

Straw colored with a touch of golden hue, small white head and minimal lacing. Citrus, tropical and herbal aromas in abundance. Citrus up front and tropical through the middle with a slight herbal finish. This might be the first beer where I get noticeable pineapple with mango supporting and a herbal touch at the end. Bright carbonation, thinner feel and slightly dry on the finish. How can a 9% ABV beer be refreshing? This one pulls it off, great DIPA!
