Nice golden orange color with white cap.

Aroma of piney citrus (I get grapefruit) with a touch of herbal spiciness.

Taste on entry is sharply citrus with an emerging hop richness that shows a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Malt is there showing a rounded presence that offsets the hops nicely. The citrus element is full and sharp but does not dominate, rather leads the pack. Mid palate an herbal element emerges that adds to the complexity.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Outstanding brew in it's way, brewed to a commercial style certainly but not showing the combined mish mash of a committee think market designed brew. This one has originality and something close to personality. Overall a smarter than average bear.

The beer pours a hazy orange-yellow color with a one finger head of white foam. The head faded rather fast leaving traces of spiderweb lacing behind. The nose is rich in tropical fruits of mango, pineapple, and papaya with a large showing of tangerine and lemon. The taste begins with a big hit of the fruits that are in the nose, with more snd more fruit developing throughout. All the while there is a modest hop taste of citrus and some lighter herbal and pine tastes. In the end with the increase in fruit and the moderate hop, one is left with a rather bright and sweeter juicy taste that is rather clean in profile. The body of the brew is slightly thicker which is rather nice for the fruity and slightly sweeter taste profile. Overall a pretty good beer. It was a little on the sweeter side and less hoppy side for a 7.5 % brew, but it was an easy drinker with a rather clean taste. Not too shabby.

Oh yeah, what a winner. Almost as good as one of my all time favorites, Pizza Boys Spandex Glitter and Egos...Almost. Picked up a six and my wife had 3. She is not a IPA drinker but just loves this IPA. This beer here has the creamyness of Little Kings mixed with the hoppiness of Sierra Nevada and a mouthfeel like Franziskaner. Bangs u with a solid 7.5 abv.

This is the first attempt at a NE Style IPA from one of the big guys (that I know of). Not bad. Hazy like fruit juice. Mellow hops, smooth all the way. Super drinkable. If you like NE IPA, this should be an easy find for you, until the rest of the country catches on to the craze. Its good.

New Belgium VooDoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA, 7.5% ABV, 42 IBU. Pours hazy yellow with a one finger white head that left a nice lacing. Nose is fruit and hops, taste follows, citrus, with some sweetness and almost no bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall outstanding. IPA aficionados who want eye-popping bitterness won't like this, but as a non-IPA drinker I liked it and would drink it again.

Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA | New Belgium Brewing. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head on this puppy is two fingers thick, with solid lacing, and a hazed medium gold body.

Smells like mango/pineapple/papaya juices with the hops coming in at the end.

Strangely enough, the hops appear upfront here and towards the finish with the juices playing their part of making this extra tasty.

Medium mouthfeel with fair carbonation.

I'll go ahead and give an overall 4.25 to Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA | New Belgium Brewing
