Victory Ranch DIPA

The standard ranch beer from victory, other variations exist as well.

Pours a perfectly crystal clear gold. Aroma of piney, resinous hops. In the taste, mild grapefruit and pine notes. Muted tropical fruit with faint pineapple juice. Some sweet pale malts and a pronounced bitterness. No hint of alcohol. Medium body and moderately carbonated. Overall this is a top notch IpA , a blend of independently grown hops that really make the ranch series. Solid just like all victory products.

Enjoyed this Imperial IPA on a spontaneous Friday night and greatly enjoy it. High alcohol content did not overwhelm the hoppiness and the aroma was very clean. Clarity was not as good as I thought it could be but smooth none the less. Overall a great beer but definitely a heavy hitter. Will enjoy again if given the chance.

Had a growler filled at Consumers in Orchard Park.Poured a brilliant copper witha sticky cloud-like slightly off white head,a full ring of lace behind was left behind.Intense sticky hops in the nosse,alot of tropical fruit mixed in with pine resin,sweet alcohol a big caramel malt as well.A burst of fruity hops at first sip with the hop flavor profile more fruity and floral than bitter,sweet stinging alcohol stnds up well to the hops,caramel sweetness is noticable.A big fruity hop attack,a great DIPA wich isn't to sweet.

A: This pours out a deep orange color. Two fingers egg shell white head. Sticky lacing bits are left on the glass. Leaves some sheeting.

S: Really nice nose on this guy. Over ripe peach, mango, papaya. Juicy hops. Different then other Victory IPAs. Less malty.

T: Right on the tip of the tongue, really piney bitterness. This continues to the mid palate. Some malts are there, but it still leans more to the hop bomb. Dry bitter close. The ABV is hidden really well, but after a growler split between two people....I felt it a little bit.

M: Medium bodied. Nice round IPA flavors.
