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 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: 4.0 - Very pale gold with a large initial head of airy foam
S: 4.0 - Large bouquet of grassy hops, nice and floral.
T: 4.0 - Initial bitterness is fairly high, but not overwhelming. Taste is a combination of citrusy, grassy hops and clean malt, with a little bit of yeasty fruitiness. Finish is dry-ish.
M: 4.25 - Very light bodied for the strength, easy drinking.
O: 4.0 - 9% alcohol? I wouldn't have known it if I didn't glance below. It takes skill to craft this drinkable a beer at that strength.
