On tap at my farewell to NY party at Blind Tiger. Medium gold pour. I’m stealing it from Jay: slightly catty aroma. Stinging finish, slightly spicy, and incredibly piney.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Entering here, but not sure it’s this is the right entry. Bartender explained that "R" and "S" are first initials of areas in Germany where hops come from. Now they are experimenting with the Ranch IIPA same way they do with their Braumeister: different hop combinations. Rating below is for Simcoe+Centennial.
translucent copper, thin white ring, large bubbled, considerable lace. Nose very bitter grapefruit and orange, light pale malt. Flavor is saltier, more caramel, heavy orange with light grapefruit, citric bitterness in the finish.

This one is bright yellow, aroma is a bit some what faint, the flavour is fairly bitter and the taste is so as well, not too bitter but it was a bit flat, needed a bit more life for me
