On tap at some random Ruby Tuesday's on my way back to Rochester. Don't quite remember where. Why would Ruby Tuesday of all places have this on tap? Don't care, it was awesome.

Pours a golden orange color with a little bit of haze. One inch head, good lacing down the glass.

Smells like citrus fruits, big and juicy!

The taste is pretty similar. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, with some pine needles and resin, and a good lingering bitterness that sticks to your tongue. Not much malt character that I can pick up.

Pretty crisp, dry mouthfeel, only a bit sticky and sweet at time. Well carbonated and very drinkable.

A nice find, glad I could have it. The forerunner to Victory's great new IPAs.

A few thoughts on Hop Ranch. Pours lighter than expected, more the color of a Pale Ale or dare I say a Pilsner? Moderate lacing coats my Ithaca pint glass. Wafting from the bottle is a touch of fruit cocktail. Nice popping carbo delivers white grape/lemony zest hop flavors followed by a very faint pale malt, ending with a slight tart dryness. No lingering bitterness at all. Just slightly tart and dry which induces my next swig. Drinkability is off the charts. Previous to having this I knocked down a Rogue Yellow Snow IPA ironically being more the heavy sipper. Hop Ranch is light and thirst quenching for a DIPA. Very dangerous, I recommend especially if your a hop fan. So glad I don't have to search far from home for quality IPAs/DIPAs thanks Victory for Hop Ranch/Dirt Wolf and Troegs for IPA and Nugget Nectar...
