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 dont get no better. update: re-rate to a 5. It is a great brew that is unmatched.

I will admit Im 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 IPSs.

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 Ive given one to a person who likes IPAs, they say they really like that one. Im very impressed with new Belgium brewing Company. Now they came out with another one called Rampant. More hoppier than Ranger but theyre both great IPAs.

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.

Very nice. Exceptionally smooth and balanced. Very similar to ODells 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 Ive 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.

Bareback hops featured prominently. No heavy malts or complicating spices to detract. Fantastically crisp beer.

Yeah, yeah, yeahi know New Belgium is becoming clich. But that doesnt 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.
