b3shine (8658) - Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent burnt-orange with sticky off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter hops and malt. Average on the palate. A solid example of the style.

574deadzone (1408) - North Central, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Hope I have the right version. Bullet fill at Ale Yeah, Roswell, just labeled "Victory Ranch." Pours a clear deep golden with a nice-sized eggshell head that leaves some clingy, intricate lacing. Big hoppy nose of pungent grapefruit, leafy green freshness, herbs and some marmalade. Really sweet but big on the bitterness, too. Lighter side of medium bodied, slightly sticky with a drying bitter finish. Really damn good DIPA, and from my experience a significant step up from the Hop Wallop.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
20oz on tap at Cock & Bull, labeled simply "Victory Ranch". Clear red-orange color. Good thin off-white head, full thick lace. Great piney, citrusy hop aroma. Very assertive and bitter. Grapefruit and resin. Bigger body, but dry texture. Good crisp carbonation. Long bitter resiny hop juice aftertaste. Caramel malt backbone. Bit of floral in there. Really assertive bitter hoppy DIPA.

BMan1113VR (7919) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Draft (Draught House Pub in Austin, TX 11/16/2012) listed as "Victory Ranch DIPA 9%". Keg collar did not specify anything beyond that. Pours with a crystal clear bronze hued body with an off-white head. Aromas are malty first, caramel, bready. Pretty clean yeast wise. Hop character is pine, mint and spicy. Flavors are bready, grainy, malt forward East-Coast DIPA. Relatively hoppy with citrusy and minty characteristics. Medium carbonation, fuller bodied and a bit sweeter than I like my DIPAs.

JStax (6003) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Poured on draft. Pours a copper color with a white head of foam. Decent sheets of lacing. The aroma has grassy, piny notes. Taste is bitter and some sweetness creeping in. Sticky mouthfeel.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2012
On draft at Petrol Station. More malt than some double IPAs, and a sweet bubble-gum like flavor, along with heavy hitting hops and extended bitter finish. Alcohol is noticeable and warming. This one is an ass-kicker.

bleeng (1679) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Draft at Petrol Station houston. Keg said "riva" so this is going under the "R". Bright gold and a bit hazy. No head-looks cold. Not much nose. Taste is very bitter with a slight sugary note. Nice full body. Decent dipa but not in the same league as the Stone Enjoy By I had right before it!

UDBeernut (2871) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2012
On tap pours amber with a small tan head. Nose of pine and booze. Taste is a bit muddled, as it warms the pine, citrus, biscuit, and caramel become more pronounced. Alchohol is cutting, boy I was glad to be siting after this and bolt cutter.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Huge citrus and pine aroma with hints of floral hops. Appearance: Clear amber with minimal head, but lots of lacing. Taste: Slight sweetness balanced by medium bitterness. Palate: Medium body, lively carbonation, crisp texture, long finish. Overall: Very flavourful and well developed IPA. Its not overwhelming , but still a really solid and attention grabbing beer.
