Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2011
355 ml bottle. Amber and crystal clear. Medium-sized off-white head. Delicate fruity and floral hops aroma. Crisp hop bitterness balanced by a nice sweet caramelly malt flavour. This is a very classic example of the American IPA. A very nice one too.

badhack (519) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Pours golden with a thick frothy head. It smells sweet and hoppy and FRESH. The taste is similar with a bit of bitterness and a tasty, fresh aftertaste. It is a fantastic beer to drink.

honest_silu (68) - Jeddah, SAUDI ARABIA - JUN 1, 2011
I am not liking this beer from populous region of sacred cow. Smelling of plant field like alfalfa or sorghum in countryside of KSA that I visit last year with brother. Taste of strong bitter like spit from camel or even peel from tree fruits. One time wife forgot to place milk into ice box and I take a sip from glass on table. This beer reminding me of this time.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
On tap at Lori’s Diner in San Francisco. Pours orange with a small white head. Aromas primarily of citrus, but also some pine and sweet malt. Similar flavor, with some citrusy hops and mild sweetness. Sessionable, but nothing amazing, in my opinion. [703]

MisterSparkle (29) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
This is a very decent every-day type of IPA. From bottle to tumbler @ home. Pours amber, very clear, with a one-finger head which is only slightly on the airy side. Lace is there, but nondistinct. Aroma is spruce-apricot. Flavor follows suit. One good thing about Ranger is that people who don’t normally drink IPA will like it, and those who love IPA will find just enough bitter in the brew to be worth the journey. Carbon action is moderate-heavy, maybe just a bit too much. Finish is very long, the taste of the hops will dance on your palate for awhile. In terms of body, it drinks a little bit like a lager. This beer makes a cameo appearance in my fridge from time to time. It’s dependable and good value, as it is usually lower priced than most other IPAs. It is actually quite excellent when drunk straight from the bottle, I might even dare to say it is better that way.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Clear golden color with a 2-finger head. Nice hoppy aroma with notes of pine. Clean flavor, bright and refreshing. Satisfying bitterness. This is a sessionable IPA that gets the job done. However, other microbreweries in Colorado (Ska, Odell, Great Divide) make much more interesting versions of this style.
