COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A central Texas take on the classic American style, Ranger Creek OPA is an American Pale Ale at heart that has new dimensions of flavor imparted by Texas-grown oats. It has smooth, sweet, and toasty malt flavors with an underlying creamy nuttiness from the oats. The malt profile is balanced nicely by English Fuggles and American Amarillo hops. The nose and finish are full of spicy, citrusy hops with faint notes of tropical fruits and apricot.

Bottle to glass - a hazed amber color with a massive, resilient cream soda style head. Smells of fresh malts, grain, mild sweet fruitiness, trace of spice. Medium-high carbonation, nice bite on the tongue. Very bready, floral pine with a sharp bitterness towards the end. Not bad, not excellent, crushable.

San Antonio, TX - Total Wine - The Rim - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium orange pout, silky off-white, very thick, frothy head. Aroma has some doughy accents, a touch of peachy fruitiness. Flavor is on the sweet side, some apricot fruitness, a light touch of spearmint, some light trailing citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel has a nice solid textured feel to it.

(En bouteille chez Cured San Antonio): Tangerines, épices, malté mais non sucré et une belle infusion juteuse tropicale. Pas déplaisant.

This was a very good pale ale it was a darker color and had that good oatmeal frothy head. I really enjoyed this one paired with a nice cut of beef. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Whoo! Need to pour this bottle slow. Big head on this one that wants to hold on for a long time. Dirty orange brew that has the aroma of orange juice and grain. From the junk floating about in it and the junk left at the bottom of the bottle it may be a bottle conditioned brew. Lots of citrus hops with some grain and malt backbone to it. Pretty decent for an APA and since this is my first OPA will have to use it to set the standard for OPA. Got a six pack of it on my trip to Fort Worth. Don’t get it, Ft. Worth is north and San Antonio is south of me. So how does it bypass my area? The distributors in Bell County suck!

On tap at The Rustic in Dallas. Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Oats, pine, nuts, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some fruitiness.

Pretty good brew...tons of fruity esters in aroma...but ok with me. Citrus hops, and great mouthfeel, maybe to do with the Oats...really liked this
