swanmann (685) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 8, 2010
From the bottle poured a bright, clear, brassy-orange ale with fluffy off white head, sustained about 3-4 minutes. It smells piney, for sure, and the flavor shouldn’t disappoint IPA fans. It’s bracing and hop forward. After it warms just a bit, lovely creamy caramel textures appear. Effective without being outrageous.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bomber from BevMo. Strong hoppy nose. Smells quite sticky, like sap from a pine tree. Dry pine bitterness. Not overwhelming, but well hopped. A little hint of sweetness, followed by dry bitterness.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Light piney aroma. Pours clear golden with mid range head. Some sweetness, drying hop finish. Understated hops, medium body.

Smooth and very balanced. Some bitterness but not overbearing, w/fruit, citrus overtones. I’ve not jumped on th New Belgium bandwagon to this point, but this is one of the best IPAs I’ve had - probably should be rated even higher.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2010
12oz bottle. Clear golden color with a decent inch-thick white head. Aroma is nice, citrusy hops. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter but nothing outstanding. Pretty bland actually. Body is very light and thin. Overall not very impressed with this one.

I really enjoy Ranger. Nice hopping grapefruit citrus prevails, which I like. It’s palate is pleasing and I consider it one of my "day-to-day" beers (Two Hearted being my favorite day-to-day).

puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Extremely clean and well balanced. Has the right amount of bitterness, the aroma is pine, herbal, and citrus. Holds a nice thick white head down the glass with regal lacing. It is plenty bitter, but there is enough bready maltiness and hop fruitiness to balance it out. The aftertaste is a bit weak, it has a medium body and thin texture with medium carbonation. A very satisfying IPA, one you could drink in quantity.

Butters (3990) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Not really digging this blend of hops. Not bad, but lots of cat pee and big foresty piney citrus. Almost sweet.

cbfobes (2803) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a light amber color with a very thick white head, has aroma of bittering hops and a hint of citrus and grapefruit, flavor is hoppy but is not very complex, okay just nothing out of this world.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
Pale golden pour and a thick white head. The nose is lightly piny. Fairly straightforward palate with a mix of pale malt, light pine and a fairly prickly/peppery finish. It has a little bit of light fruitiness on the back of the palate. Fairly simple, but well-made IPA.
