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.

Picked up a 4-pack of this the other day at a fairly reasonable price and was very pleased with this one.

Appearance: Pours a nice golden color with a frothy head about 1 1/2 fingers thick into a tulip.

Smell: Grapefruit right off the nose, nice fruity, citrus smell

Taste: Grapefruit and tropical fruits with a nice steady bitterness that doesn't overpower. A very juicy tasting beer with almost no taste of the alcohol. Very refreshing and could be dangerous without the taste of alcohol to make you pace yourself.

Mouthfeel: Juicy, slick but doesn't smash your palate at all.

Overall: This is an excellent offering from Victory and to be quite honest I think this is far better than DirtWolf. It's cleaner tasting, has more of a bite to it with its hop profile and fruity, citrus flavors are a bit more pronounced. I will be a repeat customer of this for sure.

I love this beer. I work at a beer store and bought a four pack. Finished it assuming that we'd be getting more, but no. It was sold out in a day. So piney and delicious, I'll never make that mistake again.
