Are you a hopinista? Thank our Beer Rangers for inspiring (and begging for) this well-balanced Simcoe, Cascade and Chinook hopped IPA. 70 IBUs

Nice flavors in the citrus/pine hop vein. Nice frothy carbonation. As somebody addicted to more kickass versions (like Green Flash Imperial and Weyerbacher Simcoe) it started to seem a bit thin and insubstantial over time, to the point that a cloying sweetness seemed to predominate. Wonít be buying a six - - when the glass was empty it left me craving . . . different beer!

OldGrowth (3002) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2010
old note, on tap at Tylerís Apex. Good aroma, sweet, citrus, grapefruit and orange. Clean golden orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor, fairly bitter mildly sweet. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good ipa, dulled as warmed. Sweetness made for nice moments in aroma.

Golden color. Awesome hoppy nose. Balanced flavor with lots of resiny citrus. Clean and very drinkable.

Stuedmaster (315) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 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.

Bronzan (135) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 30, 2010
Pours a very clear amber. Nice hop aroma...a little earthy, which is what I like. It loses me a little on the aftertaste..just doesnít seem to end as well as it starts. Pretty nice overall, though.

swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2010
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...

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
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.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2010
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.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2010
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+.
