Bomber. Clear amber gold with a tall rocky head. Upfront attractive hop scents of citrus, spice and pine… against a backdrop of dry dog food, marigold, tea, oily burlap and roasted corn. Clean, sharp citric hop flavor followed by toasty malt, then a damning combination of biscuit and honey malts (which taste nothing at all like biscuits or honey) and burnt circuit boards. Estery with "sweet" alcohol, diesel and "train track" taste. Faint aura of crusty sunbleached dogshit. Fullish creamy body, more oily than syrupy. Tarry and vegetal finish with lingering rough Chinook bitterness, and house fire and eucalyptus aftertaste. I love IPAs but holy fuck, this is messed up.

One of my all-time favorites. With its unique aroma, balanced taste, and bitter palate, Ranger is as perfect an IPA as one can (easily) get. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a perfect golden color with a thin fluffy white head. Smells really hoppy. Tastes just as good as it looks ans smells. Unbelievable value. Would for sure recommend, especially for the cost. Probably gonna be in my rotation.

Sevenlee (1379) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine, and dusty hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Not bad.

Woweezowee (30) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
I’ve only had this out of the can and I must say it’s a very tasty beer. The price point ($14 12 packs) somehow adds to the flavor! The beer doesn’t smell great at all (canning has always effected the aroma for me) and doesn’t look at all impressive in a glass, but the flavor packs a huge hop punch with just enough malt balance to keep it from being a plain-ol-hop-bomb. Being from Indy, I’m more of a Midwestern/malty IPA fan, and this beer seems to fall well enough between LA and Indy in both style and actual location. It’s not a palate wrecker but the bitter hops do let themselves be known. A great go to beer that should always be easy to find almost anywhere, but nothing ultra original. Just plain good.

Very pleasant IPA aroma. Smooth and tasty going in. Slightly bitter going down but very enjoyable.

benfergy (208) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
The aroma has plenty of hops, and the hops evoke a citrus aroma. As I sip, I taste some floral hops as well, and the malt is of a light bread note. The taste is slightly bitter, but not unpleasantly so. The body is medium. A rather good IPA! Of the New Belgium IPA’s, I prefer Rampant, but Ranger is plenty good as well.

MrFecesious (1064) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
On tap at blackbird. Hazy gold. Aroma of tootsie roll, tropical fruit juice blend, biscuit, citrus. Taste is fruit sweetness, and citrus rind bitterness. Tangy mouthfeel with a low-lying bitter dry finish.

Can. Smells better than tastes. Hops galore. If IPAs are your favorite then you will think it is great. Personally, bit metallic with lingering bitters.

Very well balanced IPA. Goes down really smooth. Clean golden color would get again

Belle IPA pas trop amer aux notes de miel, d’agrumes, citron et légèrement herbacée. Un ensemble assez agréable qui a contribué à sauver une soirée pleine de galères à Las Vegas.
