UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Half pint glass at DH- so, tasted it but I didn’t enjoy it. A little problem with some riff-raff there. It was a murky brown color, no lacing head, some caramel in the malt. Decent brew.

The bartender just told me this is supposed to be, basically, a double OPA. It has a medium-brown color, appears pretty thin, with a thin, light, off-white head. The aroma is mostly a soft, caramel syrup malt gently decorated with a touch of light, earthy hops. In the mouth... wow. This is an incredible spin on the OPA. After drinking this, this is how they should brew their OPAs from now on. Seriously - why even brew the standard OPA now that they’ve brewed this? It’s thin-bodied, but strong of alcohol with just a touch of grains and thick alcohol contributing to the body, making it light-bodied, but heavy and syrupy in the mouth. Yowsers, this is good. Now, I’m having this from tap and just had a conversation with the bartender that confirmed my opinions that they really have issues with bottling. My advice: if you ever drink anything from Ranger Creek, drink it from tap. Anyway, back to the beer... I can’t get over how light this is. It finishes much like a watered down cola, but with a grainy sweet and alcoholic kick. This is really impressive, and I don’t know how to give it justice by description. Impressive, superbly-brewed, and slick.

Draught. Aroma is phenomenal. Lots of pine and musky citrus. Gold with no head. Mild bitterness, prickly with sticky sweet hops. Juicy. Full bodied with no harshness.

On tap at the brewstillery. Hazy copper body with some fluffy white head. Smells juicy like ripe citrus fruits - flavor is lots of citrus and very smooth. ABV crazy well hidden.

Woof! Smells and tastes like a really resinous IPA. Its copper, clear, white head, and the aroma is quite piny. As it warms a bit more of the oat malt comes through. Very good. Light milky texture. Good bite and finish.
