DIPA version of their Ranger. If you like Ranger you’ll like this. There is a similar hop profile only more so and the malt profile is similar but also more potent.

On draught at Yard House in Scottsdale. The beer is a clear copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and roasted malt. Medium body with a resiny hops character and notes of toasted malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with an earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nose of pine, citrus and soap. Tastes like pine and alcohol. The alcohol, gas taste really starts to shine as it warms. Pretty poor dipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Poured a rather golden color, with a slight head. Aroma was grapefruit, pine, notes of tropical fruit. Flavor was a dead on match. I may have conjured up some peach on closer inspection. Medium bodied, dry finish. Malts just present enough to keep the bitterness balanced. Nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber with heavy hop aroma and flavor. But it’s unbalanced with strong floral hops and little to back it up. Good overall, but not great.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Belgium’s play on the Stone Ruination as the name suggests. A bold ale and enjoyable if you like the idea of a Ranger IPA with bolstered nuts. It is just that in my opinion. A very good brew not in the class of Stone Ruination.

Pours a clear bud heavy color with a pretty good sized white head. I could smell the dish soap as soon as I took the cap off. Aromas of soap, grass and citrus fruit. Tastes like grapefruit mixed with gasoline. Pretty fucken average.

Bomber. Brownish colored pour with a white head. Smell is hoppy, citrus, grass, pine, etc. Smells pretty good. Taste is basically a let down with it being kind of sweet and not as bitter as I hoped. Alcohol is pretty ruthless as well. Not really my kind of double IPA.
