BenDover (216) - Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Pours a yellow/orange, a bit lighter than most IPA’s, also fairly transparent, with a good bit of dense white foam. Aroma of hops and citrus fruit, and strangely, just a bit of a burnt kind of smell, maybe roasty malts or something. Taste is hops, grassy/wheaty, not as complex as I’d like but not bad at all.

Bigirish311 (3) - USA - JUN 22, 2010 does not count
Rich amber color with white frothy head that disappears a bit too quickly. Mild hoppy aroma. Well balanced hoppy profile that is flavorful without being too bitter. Very enjoyable IPA.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Tap...orange-hued body w/white head that became a ring and laced many rings around the glass. Hoppy aroma of floral grassy piny hops. Medium body with light carb and a bit dry. Lightly sweet front followed by a fairly bitter finish of pine and flowers. A decent IPA.

TheOldKid (46) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Nice thick head that leaves good rings on the glass. Aroma is floral and very hoppy with slight citrus. Taste is pretty bitter, strong hop flavor. Medium body that is on the thicker side for IPA, though it has a lively carbonation. Finish is all hops though. Overall, a nice hop rich beer. If you like Hops, you’ll like this, but there are some better IPA’s out there. Better as I went through it.

daleharshman (979) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 18, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($1.79). Pours a yellow-orange, a little on the pale side for an IPA. Two fingers of off-white head leaves good lacing. Aroma is on the weak side but includes grassy/hay hops, light citrus, and a note of maltiness. Flavor is also more "earthy" hop flavors (grassy, soapy) that is lightly but pleasantly bitter along with some caramel maltiness. Rather light mouthfeel with a dry-ish finish. Okay IPA. (444, 322)

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Strong bitter hop aroma. Pours a deep amber, clear, with a slightly brown head. Starts off with a nice toasted malt, grassy, bitter hops, and finishes with a nice bitter tail. A good IPA overall. New Belgiums’ delcious malt evident but could afford to use a more original hop blend.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Had on tap with the Chicago team at Timothy O’Tooles. Bottle while watching Lakers/Celtics final. Loved this beer. Delicious medley of hops, smooth drinking, one of the best single IPA’s hands down.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bomber. Pours a orangish gold with a sudsy yet thin head and complex aromas of citrus, bread dough, grass and herbs. Flavor is decidedly malty... hops are not as dominant as I would have hoped, more like a medicinal/herbal presence that is moderate at best. Finishes with a lot of caramel, a bit of metal and some soap.

dpjuart (1094) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle courtesy BFC. Pours orange with light ruby hues, 1 finger white head, lacing. Piny and grapefruit nose, some other citrus. Nice caramel sweetness balanced with a moderate bitter, sticking and resiny, some citrus notes. Nice carbonic mouthfeel. A nice IPA overall.

This was a very nice IPA. Bottle pour was deep, clear yellow, with a pillowy white head that stayed all the way to the end.....I like that kinda head. Aroma was piney, over-ripe orange, with a hops invite. Taste was well balanced, but no doubt IPA style, interesting, mild sweet notes, but quickly hits you with the hops bitterness. Washes down well, nothing special about the mouthfeel, with medium carbonation. I am not a big IPA drinker, but this Ranger really piques my interest in this style.
