I am not liking this beer from populous region of sacred cow. Smelling of plant field like alfalfa or sorghum in countryside of KSA that I visit last year with brother. Taste of strong bitter like spit from camel or even peel from tree fruits. One time wife forgot to place milk into ice box and I take a sip from glass on table. This beer reminding me of this time.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
On tap at Loriís Diner in San Francisco. Pours orange with a small white head. Aromas primarily of citrus, but also some pine and sweet malt. Similar flavor, with some citrusy hops and mild sweetness. Sessionable, but nothing amazing, in my opinion. [703]

MisterSparkle (29) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2011
This is a very decent every-day type of IPA. From bottle to tumbler @ home. Pours amber, very clear, with a one-finger head which is only slightly on the airy side. Lace is there, but nondistinct. Aroma is spruce-apricot. Flavor follows suit. One good thing about Ranger is that people who donít normally drink IPA will like it, and those who love IPA will find just enough bitter in the brew to be worth the journey. Carbon action is moderate-heavy, maybe just a bit too much. Finish is very long, the taste of the hops will dance on your palate for awhile. In terms of body, it drinks a little bit like a lager. This beer makes a cameo appearance in my fridge from time to time. Itís dependable and good value, as it is usually lower priced than most other IPAs. It is actually quite excellent when drunk straight from the bottle, I might even dare to say it is better that way.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Clear golden color with a 2-finger head. Nice hoppy aroma with notes of pine. Clean flavor, bright and refreshing. Satisfying bitterness. This is a sessionable IPA that gets the job done. However, other microbreweries in Colorado (Ska, Odell, Great Divide) make much more interesting versions of this style.

Westmeister (2093) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 Bottle. Pours a golden clear orange hue. Aroma is light pine and citrus, but not necessarily in that order. Really ícleaní tasting and well balanced. The citrusy bitterness is held down by the bready malts. A nice IPA that could be quite sessionable.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle from the Monk. Pours a light copper with almost no head but instead a couple of white bubbles. Aroma is off putting to begin with. Rather mucky citrus with a slight hit of hops. Much better in the mouth. Soft carbonation leads to a nice mouth feel. Hop resin and citrus in the flavour. Nice beer if it werent for the aroma

Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Just had this at the Yard House on draft and Iím going with the gang on it: the Ranger offers just the right balance for an IPA. Resin-y but appealing aroma leads into a snappy hoppy taste with fine overtones of cirtus, specifically orange. Astringent but refreshing...so it delivers the taste you want a crisp, tidy IPA to deliver out on a muggy hot afternoon.
