This is one of my go to IPA's when I can't make a decision. Pours a light straw color, good head and retention. Smell is wonderful, grapefruit, a little pine, nice and hoppy. Taste is similar to smell, grapefruit, orange peel with a nice hop linger. A great west coast IPA that won't scare away the newbies. Awesome beer.

Bought this cause it was on sale. Not a huge fan of New Belgium, but this made me want to try some of their other beers. I really like the smell, a smack of hops, citricy and flowery. Looks alright, nice golden amber color, sticky head, but it faded fast. Taste was not what I expected, there is just something "off" about it, but the hops really shine and I cant quite put my finger on it, but its just a touch too sweet or something. Really easy drinking, kind of thin for my liking. I would buy this again if it was on sale, but definitely not my first choice.

A- Light and clear. 2 finger head. Loads of lacing.
S- Bitter hop aroma.
T- Bitterness prevails. A pungent mix of hops overtakes everything. Slightly floral. Good strong hop presence.
M- This is where this beer lacks. A little watered down and too carbonated. But it does go down ok. Drinkable for an IPA.
O- I definitely like this addition to the New Belgium line of beers. This will satisfy anyone who enjoys a hop forward brew. I am no stranger to Ranger and seek it out regularly. A good solid brewski.
