Notes: Bursting with tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavors from Mosaic and Amarillo hops, this golden IPA is perfectly bitter with a refreshing, sublime finish.

Pours a nice bright orange, eggshell head, some spotty lacing. Nice citrus aromas without being fruity. Malty backbone gives it some balance. A nice IPA.

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours a brilliantly clear gold with an inch of foam, good lacing.

Smells hoppy, citrus, grass, toasted malt, a bit of a spice kick.

Taste is grass, citrus, some toasted malt, on the somewhat dry side to me.

Good mouthfeel, good IPA.

The qualities like easy to drink and fruity hops ring true with this one. Unfortunately flavor is thin and bitterness at the back of the tongue is almost non-existent. Tasted more like a Blue Moon or wheat beer than an IPA. My neighbor joined me for a Voodoo and an Elysian Space Dust. Both of us heavily preferred the latter. Maybe it's the style. Never again.

Look...Pale yellow . pils color I say. Little to no haze.
Smell...very light hint of tropical and citrus hop. Very nondescript
Taste...A pleasant hop trop pop to the top of the palate then a balancing sweetness and dryness.
Feel...An excellent effervescence that triggers the thin feel but very satisfying. almost no lacing
Overall...This beer is really solid and would buy and have again. Sometimes I feel that some beers grow on you over time and with only drinking three of these ever...Anyway this is solid good

It's kind of the Budweiser of IPAs. By which I mean it's certainly not horrible — it's clearly an IPA, which makes it ipso facto better than any light beer, or wheat beer, or bock beer, etc. — and it has at least *some* personality. Tonight I purchased a 6-pack because choices were few at the store I happened into & I hadn't had any Voodoo Ranger for a year or two. It's OK, but I don't expect to buy it again unless I happen to be someplace where it's the only IPA on tap. There are many better alternatives.

12oz can dated best before July.

Pours clear yellow with a half inch head of white. Moderate retention and lacing. Extremely faint citrusy hops in the nose with a touch of honey. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Mild hops on the palate with hints of grapefruit and pine. Finishes with balancing malt and fading honey.

Poured from a 19.2 can with a drink by date of 6/22/22. Solid yellow color with good amount of foamy head and lacing throughout. A bit light on the feel & body, subtle sweet notes of malt with decent hop bitterness. Decent.

New Belgium’s Voodoo Ranger IPA. Contract brewed by Steam Whistle in Toronto. Beer is 7% alc. Honey golden colour with frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is mild hops, more hints of melon than pine. Taste is predominantly piney and tart. Mouthfeel is prickly at first and then kind of silky. Beer is medium bodied with a smooth and wet kind of finish. Very nice glass lacing. Like something out of a 1980s beer commercial. This beer is delicious, if you enjoy the style, which I most certainly do. At 7% it’s boozy so you don’t want to drink a bunch in a row.

Grade: A

Had high hopes as I recently really enjoyed a Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA. This one just really lacked character of any kind really. Drinkable but just ok.

Clear gold color with a decent foamy white head that persists well and produces some very nice lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine with some light malt backbone.
The taste is more malt forward with a nice grapefruit, pine resin and grassy hops balancing it out with some floral and tropical fruit notes mellowing the bite.
The body is light/medium, smooth with moderate carbonation, very easy to drink.
Altogether this another very enjoyable Voodoo Ranger IPA.
