Good recommendation by the Victory staff. The high alcohol content was very well hidden and overall the beer was superbly balanced. One of the top three beers I've ever had, but I am kind of new to beer. I do enjoy Victory's products very much, especially because of how eco-friendly their business is.

Had a growler filled with the Ranch R during my trip to the brewpub to sample Eclat Cocoa Lager on 02-18-12; drank it the next night.

A: Golden copper, nice thick head.

S: Somewhat muted; some hop herbals but not much else.

T: Wow, what a ride. Starts with citrus candy/caramel malt and some pine, moves to a more subtle bitter citrus and grassy herbals, ends with a ESB-like bitter bite and a dry hop finish.

M: Not heavy or syrupy like many DIPAs I've had but not thin either. Alcohol is hidden very well until the finish. Very drinkable for a 9% beer...perhaps too much so.

O: I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I was blown away by this beer. Fantastic mix of flavors, incredibly well balanced, and very refreshing. It felt more like a bold flavored non-imperial IPA because it was so drinkable. I really liked how they were able to incorporate the characteristics of DIPAs without being overly sweet or overly hoppy; everything was well represented without any one flavor dominating. I really hope Victory takes another run at this during the summer months as this has July written all over it.

If you've had Victory's Summer Love this is its bigger, bolder cousin. Pair with a warm summer night, BBQed meats, and not much to do the next day.

Appearance is a light copper with less than a finger of head. The head dissipates rather quickly, but manages to leave some lacing behind anyway. The nose is a total pine forest. This is a very hop forward offering without a doubt. Citrus notes are upfront as well along with a milder malty flavor. A fairly distinct hop bitterness on the finish.

This is a stellar effort from a great PA brewery that knows how to do hops right! I was bummed when I found out that this would not be available in bottles.
