UPDATED: MAR 26, 2010 Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that left a lot of lacing. Very hoppy aroma with pine, citrus, sweet malt, slightly floral and earthy. Solid flavor, light, sweet cereal malt, with a bitter hoppy backend. Well balanced. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Pours to a really nice copper body with a tall white head and superb lacing. Perfect appearance in my nice 0.4 liter glass. The aroma is huge grapefruit, citrus, and nectarines, with a light pine. Dash of malt. The flavor is amber malts with some mouthwatering dryness and a nice but light hop. Seems to be more of an amber ale with a marvelous aroma. Really damned fine beer, however. Texture, cleanliness, and how it makes my mouth feel are really nice. This is a damned fine beer.

Bottle. Pours a a clear gold with a lasting white head that laced a bit. Aroma has a nice pine hop note with a slight undertone of sweet grain. Flavor starts a bit malty with a nice strong hop finish.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Dusty dry hoppiness, light grass, lemons and resin in the nose. Cloudy, light amber with decent white head and lots of lacing. Loads of limes in the flavor, lots of hops upfront with little bitterness at the swallow. This beer is very thin, almost like a full pale malt brew. It is very enjoyable, and you can drink it easy. Up the body and yay.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Swalden28) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, orange, toasted grain, florals, and pineapple. Flavor of grapefruit, florals, herbs, and earth with a moderately bitter finish.

bb (7051) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Nice grapefruit aroma with light earthiness. Grapefruit and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine lingers with light sweetness.

SrSilliGose (3277) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 25, 2010
New belgium beers tend to be terrible (sunshine wheat, 2 below winter ale, fat tire, etc) or redicuously good (tart lychee, love, le terrior). Ranger ipa falls somewhere in between these 2 extremes. Has a nice hay, grass, earthy hoppiness to it. Not terribly bitter. A decent ipa, but nothing to write home about.

Pretty good. Big on the grapefruit pine aspect. Drinkable and good balance throughout. Not bad but not great.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Very nice surprise from New Belgium. The aroma and appearance were nothing out of the ordinary for an IPA but the taste was a great combination of malty sweetness and citrus/pine hoppiness. On tap at a Green Bay bowling alley. One of the more drinkable IPA’s that I have had.
