look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bought a pint bottle from work yesterday after a looong shift. Poured into a US standard pint glass.
A - Pale, golden yellow with a thick, slightly creamy head that dissolves into a nice residual foam. Beautiful lacing and a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom. 4.5
S - Strong hop scent with a hint of grapefruit and lemon zest. Beautiful smell, honestly I might be addicted to it. 4.5
T - Slightly sweet flavor at the beginning that dissolves into a well-balanced, hoppy aftertaste. Flavor at the middle of the tongue is really complex and hard to describe, but it manages to bridge the beginning and end together extraordinarily well. 4.5
M - Crisp and lightly carbonated, and the bitterness of the hops leaves a tangy, dry flavor on the back of the tongue. 4.0
O - New Belgium's Ranger is one of the most balanced IPAs I've had. Hoppy flavor isn't overpowering at all and is easy to put down without feeling jipped. 4.5
