Not a professional by any means, but it has a black pepper taste that I thoroughly enjoy, and decent hoppiness.

L: bright amber with a light copper tint permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a white 1" lacy blanket of foam with fair to good retention

S: resiny, piny hop aroma left with traces of mint, citrus, fruit and breadcrumb

T: fruit, citrus, biscuit and tangerine with a hint of tea flavor in the background

F: body and carbonation are medium

O: A flavorful, easy drinking APA

Not as complex/flavorable as I like. It has a bit of a seaweed flavor. Weak head, cloudy gold color. A decent beer, not bad by any means. Very drinkable.

Decently hoppy IPA, but not overwhelming by any means. Has a good body flavor to it that reminds me of a sort of fruit/citrus beer, just without the sweetness. Overall a very good beer

Starting out tonight with some Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale, from New Belgium Brewing. Chosen because I liked the label. Pretty standard IPA, but doesn't have the major hoppiness of the last few beers I've sampled. The smell is fairly strong alcohol, tastes pretty grassy, but I mean that in a good way. There's a sourness too it, but it's missing the citrus flavors. There's a whisper of tropical fruit in the backtaste but that's all. Probably better on a hot summer day, and some more of the flavor comes out as it loses the cold. Nice, but not special.
