2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has a bit of a feet smell, which is really off-putting. Taste is slightly bitter with just a hint of sweetness on the back end of this; not quite licorice, but in that general family.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with a filmy off-white head that leaves good lacing on the way down. Aroma is fresh citra hops, tropical citrus with a hint of grass. Taste follows with more grass and a clean bitter finish. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours clear amber with a two finger white head that leaves nice drippy lacing and recedes to a small foamy cap.
Aroma is all Citra, like smelling whole leaf Citra hops. Tropical fruits, big time citrus, bread and some caramel malt underneath. Very good strength.
Flavor is citrusy hops, grapefruit rind, tropical fruits, resinous hops, bready malt, some caramel sweetness to balance the good bitterness. Alcohol is there but rather quiet for a 9% ABV brew.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, chewy, good carbonation.
Had the Philly Beer Week version of Ranch a while back and liked it a lot, this Citra one is even better. Literally like smelling whole cone Citra hops. Awesome stuff!

Draft at Brouwer’s in Seattle (the Brewery indicated this is the right version). Darker caramel orange, deep juicy aroma hops, deep citrus-pine. Spicy, earthy hops with rising alc bite, and darker toasty malts. Spicy and earthy, cool

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a lightly cloudy lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was of mainly tropical fruity citra hops, a little drt and earthy notes, and some salt. Flavor was nice citra notes, alcohol came through a little bit on this one though. Some caramel and maltiness to balance out the bitterness. Above average IPA.
