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.

Without a doubt, I gave this one a 4 across the board.
This was your typical lighter colored beer, with just a hint of an orange hue. That hoppy aroma, of grapefruit, citrus and more was present, but not as much as you get in some of your real hoppy beers.
The first taste was light and extremely refreshing. I can feel a nice balance of malt, not heavy and the hops. But the most interesting aspect of this beer was that it was so very drinkable and as I describe some beers as 'chuggable'
I was very surprised when I saw that this was a 9% abv. I could not detect any alcohol or boozy taste. Instead, crisp, clean , dry and waiting for the next one.
