Can. Poured into pint glass, clear golden color with minimal off-white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is nicely bitter balanced with caramel malt sweetness. Pretty solid and pretty good.

Vestlake (211) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Aroma and taste are a little pine and a lot of hop bitterness. Overall, this beer was okay.

On draft. Dark golden color with one finger fluffy head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Slight grapefruit and bitterness, okay IPA.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Clear golden liquid with a small off-white to cream colored head. Citric hops dominate with a hint of grain and resin. Grapefruit and green herb flavors. Not much depth or malt to this one. I really do appreciate my malt, but I am hard pressed to find much in this one. A hint in the linger, but the rest is just hop water. 2/10

Too hoppy of a beer, like the hop stayed too long in the water. Maybe needs to be tasted among all other beer that Colorado has to give. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Looks like a plain old macro. Piney citrus aroma. Bitter taste. This was from a pick six pack, glad I didn’t buy a sixer. This didn’t do much for me.

Tastes hoppy but did not strike me as too bitter. One of my first IPA’s and a good introduction.

ryecatcher (991) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bomber ($2.99 from The Jewel on my way home... Woohoo cheap!). Pours clear golden, nose is citrus, mild pine. Mouth is light bodied, pleasant bitterness, some grapefruit, toast, soap. Almost a sessionable IPA , but a little too high in the ABV I guess. Nothing earth-shattering but refreshing and cheap.

This is a good ipa with nice color and aroma. The taste is not too hoppy and it has a great after taste I would recommend this beer.

From a can, cans are better. Ranger is a perfectly brewed ipa. The aroma is exactly like fresh malted barley, it is nonpareil. If you have ever malted barley and can get a whiff of the malt while malting, the aroma of Ranger is just like the aroma of fresh malting barley. Malting is an art and the eye does the work of when to roast the malt for ideal aroma and sweetness. Add your hops and it is beer. Ranger is a topnotch brew. It is a 5, so that is what it gets.

Pint-size can at Miller Park. Thick head. Pine aroma. Pine and grapefruit upfront. Bitterness in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
