3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is pale straw with visible particles floating. It poured a foamy white two-finger head that dissipated to 1/2 finger and left moderate lacing. Aroma was sweet malts and citrus & floral hops. Taste had an initial bitterness but quickly turned to citrus hops. Crisp, smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Overall a nice hoppy beer.

Holy fuck this is good. Tropical fruit aroma flavor of grapefruit tropical punch. Gets sweet at times but otherwise a beast of a brew

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a straw-yellow color lots of particles floating. A creamy, slushy head, though kind of slight. Thick lace.
Aroma of canned pineapples, bubblegum (I’m getting that a lot lately), lemongrass, and strong citrusy hops dominating.
The flavor is heavy pineapple hops. The grapefruit is muted. There is almost no malt balance to speak of, although it’s not a bad thing in this case. The citrus is strong with this one.
The feel is slick and buttery. Do not drink immediately after brushing your teeth.

Pours a straw yellow color with an aroma of pine, grapefruit, and mango. Floral flavor with grapefruit, lemon, and mango rounding out the flavor. Another great offering from Victory.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Incredibly light colored and light body for such a high alcohol content brew. Pleasing floral aroma with a slight hint of pineapple.

The beer is golden with a huge, fluffy white head. The aroma offers dank hops, oranges and assorted citrus. Toast and biscuits with orange juice. Juicy and resinous with a bitter finish. Some pine notes and sourdough bread. Well balanced with a leaning toward hops. Tasty beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The most anticipated DIPA of the last 100 years. Pours a surprisingly pale, almost straw, gold with a thinner eggshell head that leaves some soapy, splotchy lace. Nose involves mango, pineapple, herbal aromas, spice, a savory note, peaches, some peppery notes, grassiness, some lemony citrus, and lightly toasted malt. Somewhat sweet flavor, seemingly a bit tart, nicely but not excessively bitter. Medium to light bodied, oily, softer carb, with a puckering drying effect on the end. Outstanding, and way to easy to drink with everything going on.

I thought Dirt Wolf was great..Hop Ranch tops it. Resiny beginning with a fruity ending, ABV well hidden. Another victory for Victory!
