    Just saw this on their website .
    Available now on draft at the brewpub.
    Sounds interesting.

    Anyone try this yet?

    I haven't, but Victory has some damn fine Double IPAs that never get bottled!

    As much as I love Hop Wallop, I would much prefer to see Ranch S bottled instead! (or alongside)

    Cheeers!

    Mad Mex in Robinson (Pittsburgh area) lists this as one of the beers in their line up for IPA week (Starting Feb 18).

    I'll definitely order one and report back.

    Really good double IPA. Around 8.5% abv. Uses kolsch yeast so it does not contain as many fruity esters as you would usually get from using a regular ale yeast and finishes clean with a pronounced hop taste throughout the palate due to the yeast used.

    Went to Mad Mex but they weren't tapping this yet. :slight_frown: Gotta try to convince the wife to go back out again later in the week when they have it ready. Really was looking forward to it.

    Just thought I'd mention that this is gone from Victory now. Stopped by Sunday morning for a pint and it was already kicked.

    The brewery restocks draft beers on Tuesdays and Fridays. I suspect that the popularity of this new brew overwhelmed the initial weekend supply. It should be on draft today.

    Was at Victory yesterday and out of K Bomb or Ranch, both of which I had a hankering for. Storm King on hand pump was outstanding though. Bierre de Garden was very good too.

    Having one now at station taproom in Downingtown. 10 oz pour. Crisp, clean. Hazy with little head. Packs a hop punch.
