This was...o.k. I was grilling chicken outside and felt in the mood to drink it, which was rare because I’m not a fan of IPAs. But the key thing is that the finish held the bitterness and the flavors in reasonable balance. Decent. Bottle.

Very clear with slight head. A litte too light. Good flavor and easy to drink. Not too filling and easy to drink a few. No bad aftertaste , maybe not enought flavor but not overwhelming.

I was taken by surprise with the "Ranger". Smooth, rich tasting without being overpowering. I am going to go out and buy another six pack. I put this beer in my top 3 or 4 IPA’s. Nice taste of hops - try it.

Bottle split with pat. Pours a clear golden body. Aroma is citrus and bright pine hop. Mouthfeel is smooth and delicious pine hop with notes of citrus and grapefruit

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 bottle 12 oz: Clear, dark golden w off white head that held up fairly well. Moderate lace, Smell is of fresh, floral, resinous pine, adequate hops with a masculine, slightly skunky/cat piss (but in a good way) essence. Nice clean, somewhat sweet malt flavor. Into medium bodied. Fresh tasting, nice summer IPA. Good balance. I like this beer. New Belgium has finally made a supermarket beer I’ll be anxious to buy again.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Tap at Good Times in Eugene. Pours a nice orange with a solid head and some decent lacing left behind. Smells of pine and citrus hops with a minor bit of biscuit malt backing it. Flavor also a solid mix of pine and citrus hops with a biscuit malt backdrop. A little mild for my tastes, but a solid IPA at a good price point.

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2010
The New Belgium Ranger IPA did not reach the quality I had in mind, but nonetheless it still is a good tasteful beer. It is much more on the bitter side, but contains a sweet finish

portableparty (2257) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle. Pour is clear like glass with a nice golden amber hue and a quick soapy head that dissipates. Aroma at first is strong florals and pine, but minutes latter I got muddled malts with faint musty hops. Taste is pine with a decent malty finish, little musty and mixed up in the end. Palate starts out thin and malty (chaulky) and finishes dry.

jasonp (1564) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours an attractive light copper with a white head. Medium intensity aroma of light biscuity malt, some tropical fruit and citrusy hops. Flavor starts with simple light malt profile then gives way notes of grapefruit, tangerine, light pine and then some mango/papaya.The hop presence is also medium strength in the flavor as well. Medium bodied with a smooth drinkable texture and moderate carbonation. Overall, a very solid session IPA.
