UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 The aroma of barley being malted is present and is absolutely killer. It is like drinking cotton candy. This brew is a great brew and is probably unmatched. It don’t get no better. update: re-rate to a 5. It is a great brew that is unmatched.

I will admit I’m a bit skeptical of any beer that has to be shipped in from anything more than a few miles of me. New Belgium blows that skepticism right out the window. The most incredible thing about Ranger is the head. I use no hyperbole when I say you could eat it with a spoon. An amazing beer that you owe yourself to try if you even remotely like IPS’s.

Best IPA deal around. Consistently amazing and drinkable. Understated brand in a saturated market. ---Rated for the sake of BEER!!

Ranger is a great IPA. Every time I’ve given one to a person who likes IPAs, they say they really like that one. I’m very impressed with new Belgium brewing Company. Now they came out with another one called Rampant. More hoppier than Ranger but they’re both great IPAs.

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.

Translucent burnished gold with a dense and lasting beige head. Medium body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: pale malt sweetness, floral citrus fruit hops. Clean and pleasant.

Taste: sweet toasty malt, clean bitterness, piney citrus hops.

Yeah, yeah, yeah—i know New Belgium is becoming cliché. But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying one of the boldest IPAs to ever grace my palate! Starting off light and refreshing, this beer finishes off strong, bold and hoppy. This is my go-to beer.

This is a great-tasting IPA. At 70 IBUs, it’s quite hoppy, but very well balanced. Wonderful.

500ml bottle sample. Pours a beautiful golden colour with lovely white head and clumpy/ pillowy lace. Aroma was sweet, piney, crisp refreshing. Taste was so nice and bitter, sweet piney. Just delicious.
