Nice flavors in the citrus/pine hop vein. Nice frothy carbonation. As somebody addicted to more kickass versions (like Green Flash Imperial and Weyerbacher Simcoe) it started to seem a bit thin and insubstantial over time, to the point that a cloying sweetness seemed to predominate. Won’t be buying a six - - when the glass was empty it left me craving . . . different beer!

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 (959) - 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.

Pours pale Amber with some orange. Light white head. Clear. Tastes crisp and nicely hopped bitter but not over the top. Refreshing palate with a touch of hoppy aftertaste. Great IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated based on notes taken 18 Dec 2014 -- This is the IPA I seek out at bars that don’t have a great craft beer selection. Great distribution and a solid beer.

12oz cans. Drank these while at Wanee Fest and was enjoying the hell out of them. Great IPA that for some reason we can’t get up here in the northeast.
