This is my current favorite New Belgium IPA. They do a great job making beers with different hop varieties and this combination is perfect for my pallet. Ranger is very aromatic with a noticeable hop flavor on the tongue initially, then finishes smooth and not as bitter as many IPAs. Malt takes a back seat in this beer but the result is an IPA that is refreshing and easy to drink. The main flavors I get from the hops are papaya and other tropical fruit which provides a pleasant and not overpowering sweetness.
Like many Colorado breweries New Belgium has started selling Ranger in cans so it’s easy to transport for outdoor activities and the cans don’t seem to have any adverse affect on the hop aroma of flavor.
