"Hop Ranch" harkens back to the Victory "Ranch" Series that allowed brewers to experiment with a variety of hops; in the case of this beauty: Azaca, Germinate and Mosiac. Poured into a tulip glass by the steady hand of DC Tap House's finest server, this brew boasts a translucent copper body, with few carbonation bubbles. Ther is a substantial head of chunky froth that brings out a gummy lacing, which deteriorates as the langorous quaff is pursued. There is a pleasant nose of orange slices with subtle whiffs of bubblegum and butter; the palate is dusted with grapefruit and malty motes.
Thers is a chalky bite in the mouthfeel that proceeds to a dry finish with some citrus tanginess. Yet, there is a smoothness that belies the heavy alcohol structure.
Another winner from an American brewing icon. Great beer; thy name is Victory.

This beer has a golden/yellow pour out of the bottle with strong hop and citrus smell. The taste mimics the awesome smell and the beer has decent lacing. The mouthfeel is smooth with small bite in the after taste. Overall I like this beer very much, I raise my pint to victory once again.
