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.

Mosaic hops and Hop #483 (Azacca)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a small layer. It is a pale yellow color with a little haziness and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tropical, floral, piney, resin, pungent, grassy, pilsner, and pale malts.

Taste: Wow!!! What a tasty brew. Everything I smelled came out on the palate. Nice mild bitterness and the alcohol is not even noticeable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, tingly, light to medium bodied, a little chewy, and so tasty.

Overall: I have had this several times and I think it gets better. So delicious and tasty.

Serving type: bottle
