12oz bottle Pours golden-amber with a big frothy white head and weak lacing. Aroma has slight Mendocino bud stank. fruity and citrusy with a hint of apricot. most very floral. bitter in the front, fruity then to malt. Finish is bittersweet and fairly long. i like that itís not overly mulling spiced out like so many IPAs

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Pours golden-amber with a quick white head and weak lacing. Nose is more syrupy than most IPAs but is full of apple, maple, and the usual potent floral hops. Flavor is very bitter on the front, balancing back out some on the backside with a fruity and surprisingly bready malt. Finish is bittersweet and fairly long. I appreciate this being a little different than the standard IPA but itís not all that great either.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Tasted in a bottle in Vail, Colorado. Yellow burnt orange body with an off white head. Piney hoppy aroma. Piney/bushy hoppy flavor with a bit of citrus. Bitter taste and bitter hoppy finish.†Update: this sucks.

KimJohansen (10419) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2010
Clear golden with a medium off white head. Hoppy nose with pine, grapefruits and peach. Flavor was dry with pine, grapefruit and plenty of hops. Finished dry and bitter.

Severian (42) - Saint Charles, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 Bottle. Pours copper/golden with white head. Smell is pine, grass, fruits. Taste is much of the same -pine, grass, a bit of fruit. Not balanced enough IMO. Bitter, dry finish. All hops and nothing else to balance it. I love a hoppy beer, but I just donít dig this. Moderate carbonation. Surprisingly refreshing, a summer brew for sure, but it lacks balance.

Pours clear gold with a small white head. Nose is floral, citrus and some toasted malt. Crisp citrus hop flavor and very refreshing.

Hopsinator (1) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2010 does not count
Great aroma, looks like a light lager with head, opens the taste buds and leaves a great malty flavor that forces you to savor before your next sip. Overall, I love this beer. Now to stop gabbing and have another!

SPDickerman (1176) - Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Pours clear amber brown with a white head. Smells greatly of hops, very floral. Tastes very bitter, three hop varieties. On the heavier end of light-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth carbonation, the Ranger IPA finishes less bitter than expected but still quite pleasant in the IPA style.

chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Pours a golden copper, with a thin white head, gradual CO2 release and nice lacing. Aroma is spruce and citrus hop dominated. Palate is thin, smooth and bubbly on the finish. Taste is a nice hoppy profile with a slightly bitter finish.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
THOUGHTS: Wow. That was a lot of hops. Not enough balance. It was all hops and not much malt. Not one of my favorites. Extremely hoppy. A little too bitter; TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, clear, light, orangey copper with an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished but kept a thin sheet throughout and left good lacing. The aroma had light caramel malt; very slight cookie; moderate to heavy, pine, resin, grapefruit and orange hops; apricot and some slight notes of rubber. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was sweet and rather bitter with an average duration. There was light caramel, then tons of pine, resin and citrus hops and then a little more caramel. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.
