Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. Grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Bright citrus, a touch of pineapple, and some pine. Lightly grassy and sweet. The flavor is dry and crisp with just a hint of bread sweetness. Grass, flowers, and lots of grapefruit zest. Some orange, pine, and a little bit of bitterness on the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 Bottle. Crystal clear amber-yellow color. Pungent hop aroma, floral and almost perfumey with some cut grass. Great mouth feel. Tastes acidic with firm bitterness and resinous aftertaste. Its missing malt balance but otherwise a very good beer.

Had it on tap at World of Beer in Evanston IL. Poured an orange hue with even lacing. The aroma smelled like marijuana :) and the taste was hop bitter.

Pints on tap. Hazy, golden pear color with a lasting cover of cream. Dank herb, starches, caramel, resin and grapefruit in the aroma. Flavors are grapefruit, caramel, green herb, and resin. Medium body is well balanced, has medium carbonation and is dangerously drinkable.

Sour aroma. Clear darker golden color. Slight tang and bitter taste at first then and second zing of citrus every time. Still, the bitter after taste is a bit overwhelming and i fear itís all iíll taste for the rest of the night. Itís aiight.

Didn't get a ton of aroma. Very slight hoppy smell but not much else comes to mind. Not much head. Maybe More my fault wet glass and my fridge is probably colder than most. The 8.5% abv attracted me to this but I have to say its pretty much a basic no thrills ipa. It's good and great for catching a buzz but maybe not for the one looking for something new.

Bottle. Clear, golden pour with a large frothy white head. Citrus and light floral aroma. Surprisingly malty and peach flavors in the initial taste, eventually fades to a heavy floral finish. Average carbonation with a sticky texture. Pretty evenly balanced for an IPA as it doesnít leave that heavy malt bite on your tastebuds.

Strong intial fish taste. Head holds up well. Bitter finish but overall pretty tasteless. Aroma is best part.

A very nice DIPA. Aroma of piney citrus and resins. Taste is well balanced with great bitter finish and some pleasant fruit notes; dry finish echoes the Ranger IPA product line nicely.
