Ranch is a bright coppery shade of orange, clear but for a little chill haze and the darkness keeping a whole lot of light from passing through. The off-white head is about half a finger tall, displays good retention, and drops spotty lacing.
The aroma provides some juicy citrus as well as pith, along with a sort of perfumey and earthy mixture backed up by caramel malts that allow the hops to take over. Some slightly sweeter, more mellow tropical fruit hints linger underneath.
The flavor is deep and layered pretty nicely. It starts juicy on the tongue with citrus and the malt then giving way to earthy, floral, perfumey and raw, stem/leaf bitterness. Some resin comes in there too, but it doesn't dry it out or add too much pith to it. It's sort of rustic but clean.
The feel is also clean, bright and lively in a medium body. Crispness is consistent all the way through, and it's pretty nicely smooth to boot.
Serving type: growler
