Piney, earthy aroma. light orange pour with white head and good lacing. A bit sweeter than I expected. Not overly hoppy, but a nice bitter and a mix of pine and citrus hops. Fat Tire like biscuit malt action as well. Pretty darn good...

4/29/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Wonderful fresh hop aroma! Loving the grapefruit, tropical fruits, even the borderline sour bitterness. There is a dash of corn, though. The flavor is good, but not as good, with more bitterness and a larger dash of that corn. Overall, really not bad.

Sampled at brewery. Pours clear gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of light pine, orange, caramel. Taste is more citrusy, leaning towards sweet, medium length bitter finish. Medium light body, soft texture.

Slightly sweet and uber refreshing. This is a great IPA. The hops arenít overdone or under done. Closest thing to a session IPA that Iíve seen in awhile. 6.5 % alc might be a bit high for a session though. Pours with a slight white head. The carbonation level isnít really high. Maybe the beer could be a little more rich, but that might ruin everything else Ranger does well.

22oz. Consumed today. Best by 7/9/10. [A] Pungent piney, earthy, citrus notes over a sweet pale, biscuity and caramel malt aroma. Smells like a Fat Tire with some dank hops. Or something. [A] Clear golden pour, with a bubbly body and white head, kind of recedes into an island atop my brew. Fuzzy lacing. [F] Flavor follows smell pretty closely. Piney, earthy, zesty citrus hops. Bitter is actually quite nice. The malt is mild here under the hops, with a pale and slightly caramel taste. [P] Thin to mild bodied. Appropriate carbonation. The hop bitter is impressive enough to appreciate. And keep my interest through a 6-pack. Not my first choice for a session, but a bomber was enjoyable, and I probably could do more. [O] If this is as "micro" as your local 2AM liquor store goes, or the only bomber you can afford when you need a hop fix, by all means, grab THIS. It satisfies, but does not exceed. Iím sure there are better things you could fit into $4-9. A solid offering either way @ 6.5 and 70 IBUs. Could stand to be a little maltier. Definitely a repeat at the right place & time. Iíll give this one some props for $2.99+.

hayduke (3323) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a clear orange with a very fatr white head with good retention that left rick lacing in the glass. The nose is very strong and leaps out of the glass with citrus and pine hops. Body if full, and the mouthfeel slick and smooth. Te flavor is light on malt and heavy on hops, with lots of bitterness. Somewhat oddly the finish tails off a bit but is still decent all way to the last sip. A good IPA.

pepsican (1440) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2010
orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, biscuit, and caramel. Flavor is too malt forward, and the hop flavor has a plastic twang going on. Lotís of biscuit going on in this and some orange sucker hops staleness. Bitter finish, good carbonation.

clear gold color, slight white head, some lace. good looking beer. mildy hoppy nose with a trace of caramelly creaminess. only mildly hoppy, trace of grain and caramel in the flavor. medium bodied, light bitter finish. a bit of fun, but ultimately i found it a little too mild.
