Very nice. Exceptionally smooth and balanced. Very similar to O’Dells IPA, which I like very much as well. Malt and yeast balance much better than Stone, which I hold as the standard of a "pure" west coast IPA. Appearance is also distinguished by lasting white head and lacing, nice orange color, and excellent activity. Might be the best overall balanced IPA I’ve had yet.

Hmmmmmm this certainly wasn’t a bad IPA but the hop presence is perhaps a bit overdone. It feels strange saying that because it is an IPA and the brewers were clearly going for heavy hops but it really was like hop water. Virtually no malt flavor or aroma. I am a hophead but geez the aftertaste was a tad medicinal. Looked nice, poured a light amber color with a frothy white head. Probably won’t be having this again but I enjoyed it I guess.

12 oz from chilled can while camping. I"ve had this beer more than a few times and enjoyed it every time. I’d love to rate it in ideal conditions, but this should do for now. A classic IPA. Bitter, fruity, floral, and citrusy. Definitely worth drinking; great for camping.

Vacker öl med en tjock fin skumhatt. Generellt ok, inget som sticker ut. Bra söndags IPA.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Tasted in Vail, CO, under the shadow of LionHead mountain. Served in a shaker glass. Lighter colour than expected - golden colour, slightly darker than a lager but lighter than many hopped up IPA’s in this category. Almost non-existent head, aroma is all hops. Flavour is almost bile like hoppiness. The warming effects of the alcohol battle the in your face basic training commands shouted at you continuously by Sargent Cascade and Chinook.

swesson (305) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2015
From a bottle. Pours a light gold and makes a small white head, with a bit of lacing. Aroma is quite strong of pine. Also smells of citrus, hops and malted barley. A little too medicinal in taste for me. Tastes of hops and caramel and lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

뉴 벨지움 브루 - 레인저 IPA 6.5% ABV 홉의 쌉싸름함과 파인향, 상쾌하고 가볍게 마시기 좋은 IPA. 맛이 비어 재미없고 심심한 편이다. 전국을 커버하는 대중적인 크래프트 맥주 시장 장악이 목표인듯 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Poured out of a bottle. Pine quality in the nose with hints of biscuit malt. Gold hue, slightly copper with healthy white head and good lacing. Thin crisp mouth feel. Light sweetness with pine and earthy hop flavor.

Vestlake (236) - 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 (5124) - 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
