a clear golden yellow pour with 2 fingers of white fluffy head and great amounts of lacing.smells like grass, pine, honey. bitter burnt tire taste up front followed by a malty-hoppy floral sweet taste. this is a very well balanced ipa with a light-medium body, nice fizzy carbonation, a great taste, great appearance and great smell. new belgium got it down right.

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
