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.

on tap inside the beacon hill pub in seattle. not bad, but pretty standard ipa, slightly sweeter with a little less bitterness than typical for my PNW palate.

bubbleflubber (2131) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Pours golden-amber into the glass, with a thin cap that leaves soapy lace. The nose is of fresh pine needles.... some floral notes... very nice. The flavors are crisp, dry and bitter, highly effervescent of fresh and resinous pine, with a slight hint of biscuit in there for linear continuity. The finish is dry and lingering... pine, pine, pine... and young fresh pine at that. There is a light, zesty mouthfeel with a lively texture through active carbonation levels. Nice IPA, and a West Coast take on the style that I gladly accept.

This beer pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. Really nice lacing around the glass that sticks. Aroma of hops is instant along with citrus and floral smells. Flavor of hops and citrus. This is really good!

IrishBoy (4061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
12 oz bottle from Pantani dated Jul 10 09. Nose of light pine, caramel, and citrus; wish it was fresher! Clear yellow gold with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is fairly bitter and piney.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2010
22oz bottle dated 09 July 10: Pours a transparent bright golden with a full-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty pale malts and fairly fresh resiny piny hops. Starts with good fullness and light crystal malty sweetness with some assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hop notes before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. A well-balanced and very drinkable IPA.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Intense sweet resiny nose, a littel bit of pepper. Medium amber color, large fluffy white head. Mellow caramel sweetness, steady bitterness, very well balanced. Big carbonation, medium body, soft mouthfeel, fruity floral finish. Very tasty beer, flavors are nicely balanced, not too overwhelming, a bit pretty.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2010
12 oz beer. Pours a pretty golden orange color with a thin white head with light lacing. Strong, smelly, delicious herbal resin hop aroma. Flavor is a bit of a disappointment after such a great aroma, but still quite good. Light up front tapering into a woody, earthy, bitter resin flavor of hops at the end. A bit of a grassy finish as well. Better than expected (I’m not a big fan of New Belgium) but could have been better.

Good to taste a hoppy selection from New Belgium. Haven’t liked much they’ve done, except for Mighty Arrow, which is slightly more full-bodied than this. I found the Ranger to be resiny and thin in taste for an IPA. More bitter than average. Lighter in color than most IPA’s too. Creative packaging but honestly just average for an IPA.
