Notes: Dry-hopped with Strata, Amarillo, and HBC 522. With notes of passionfruit and freedom, American Haze is a supremely drinkable, juicy and unfiltered IPA brewed with all-American hops.

Its like a bath-bomb in a can. Very aromatic, very unlike other IPA's you've tasted... which doesn't mean it is good.

I've liked voodoo ranger for a while, but this beer made me create this account to tell everyone here to avoid this one.
It really isn't good, and I wish they wouldn't sport "American" IPA on it... because what a way to deter other people from American IPAs.

12oz can from the variety pack

Looks beautiful, like all New Belgium beers. Very light scent, especially for an IPA... light grain and booze and not much else. The taste unfortunately follows the scent... very clean with lemon, grass, wheat... not much else. Very very light... barely an IPA...

I like a light hoppy beer but I'm not sure who this was made for...

Not everything is a NE IPA just because it doses a little tropical fruit and medicinal hops. This does have the visage down, looks great in a pint glass to be sure. The flavor is pleasing but a bit watered down and shrank a bit from the mature taste. Certainly crushable, and perfect with the usual caveat that it really works best outside in warm weather in large quantities and nothing important to do. Just fine for what it is: not meant to be consumed as a single.

Light amber with a small, slightly fluffy head that fades into lumpiness in a minute or two.

Light fruitiness and hops, but not much going on in the nose.

Mild front, with sour hops followed by a mostly bready, slightly malty finish.

Smooth and inoffensive on mouthfeel, not heavily carbonated.

Overall this is decent, but nothing to write home about. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it, but I wouldn't turn it down at a party.

12oz can. Hazy orange with a rapidly collapsing, off-white head. Aroma is vaguely citrus. Flavour and mouthfeel are like watery orange cordial with a touch of elderflower. The finish is mercifully dry, however. Pretty bland overall. Wouldn’t describe this as a NEIPA.

If you mixed a Budlight and a regular Voodoo Ranger IPA together that's what this taste like... to me of course. ehh Looks f*cking killer tho.

Part of a New Belgium Hoppy Pack.

Look - Bit darker than you may expect. Quarter finger of head. Decent stick.

Smell - Banana and the usual grapefruit suspects.

Taste - Follows much the same. Kinda hefe surprisingly.

Feel - Quite smooth and goes down easy. Rind. Banana coats the mouth and lingers.

Overall - Not sure about a NEIPA but it was a solid brew nontheless and a welcome addition to the variety pack. Give it a try.

Pretty good. The look is pretty typical for any hazy, if a little bit darker. Not much head, but it does persist for a while. Smell isn’t much to brag about either. It smells pretty heavy on the malt side, not very hoppy or piney, but I get a little bit of fruity aroma, can’t put my finger on what it is, but it’s fruit. The taste is decent. Not the best for a hazy but not the worst either. About what I expect from this lineup, not that it’s bad, but I feel like aside from the Juicy Haze and V2K, most of the VR series is pretty lackluster. Again, by no means bad. It tastes of some light citrusy fruits, orange and grapefruit, but it doesn’t overpower. It does leave room for improvement on the complexity of the flavors though for sure. Not very piney or malty or hoppy, it’s kind of just a fruity beer. Almost hard to tell it’s beer because it lacks any sort of signature beer taste. Not a bad beer for a session, but not one I would pick up just to have one again. I like the VR lineup because it’s a great alternative to cheap party beer, and won’t break the bank, and most people can stomach them.

Beautiful hazy gold with a big rocky head. Smell is mild hop bitterness- pine and citrus. Taste is a sort of soft hop bitterness, balanced pretty well by the malt. Some nice hop flavors but their subdued- pineapple. Mellow. Like the standard IPA version the beer is really nicely balanced. But for an NEIPA this is on the weak side at 5% and it shows. Feel is light for the style, which isn't necessarily bad- it's very drinkable. This falls into a category of sessionable ~5% "IPA's" that are the kind of beers you'd like to see become really mainstream. A lot of times I don't think they work but this is pretty solid.

Should call it the Voodoo Pale Ale as that what it feels like going down. Enjoy by date was 9/212021. New Belgium obviously spends more time on marketing than making beer.

This is a really good hazy IPA. Very summer like with melon and passion fruit. Super easy to drink and not a high Ibu. Perfect summer patio beer.

Look: It pours cloudy golden yellow. It has an off white head with very good head retention.

Taste: It has a passionfruit flavor with a bit of grainy sweetness. There are some orange and citrus notes.

Feel: It has a medium body with a mostly sweet finish.

Overall, there are some good tropical flavors with a sweet finish.

This is a take on a low alcohol IPA. It has plenty of flavor and character regardless. For people who are unfamiliar with IPAs and want to get in on the frenzy, this is a good brew to start with.

Pours golden haze with nice white foamy cap. Decent easy drinking and refreshing standard hazy IPA - on the mild lite side in terms of IPA bitterness punch and ABV. Good summertime brew with subtle passion fruit notes pairs well with spicy Indian and food.

Pours a hazy straw color with a good head of of white foam. Mild tropical fruit on the nose akin to passion fruit, but underwhelming. Taste’s juicy with tropical fruit and citrus. Mild on the hops.
