New Belgium Brewing Co. "Voodoo Ranger Agent 77 IPA"
12 fl. oz. can coded "15 MAY 2022 0722 220106061V282265"
$2.99 @ Foodery Beer, Phila., PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Agent 77 pours a hazy yellow-gold body beneath a thumb's width of white foam. The aroma is citrusy and tropical. The flavor is a bit different with a huge amount of peach right upfront. The malt is basic and sweetish, propelling the fruity hop notes forward. It seems like there's some wheat in play but I'm not sure about oats. I'm finding notes of peach, orange, guava, passionfruit, and white grape. A moderate to median bitterness balances it nicely and it finishes mainly dry with a dollop of sweetish malt and some delicate spiciness lingering shortly. In the mouth it's medium-light in body and gently crisp. The head held up better than average but not great, and I'd say the lacing is in the same boat. I really like the choice of hops in this and it's an easy drinking and refreshing IPA despite its 7.7% ABV.

Pours a hazy yellow, big sudsy head and some nice lacing, snot machine gets tons of tropical fruit, taste buds get all than, some mild hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. I can see myself buying a sixer!

From a 12oz can:

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, huge head.

Smell: Citrus, pears.

Taste: Mild sweetness, pear, white wine-slight apple, a mineral note. Very low bitterness, light feel.

Overall: Nelson is a unique hop showcased by Agent 77. Interesting white wine flavors, but still definitely a beer. Easy drinking and light feel. Kind of interesting to have a non-supercharged high-octane version of a Nelson-hopped beer.

missed this one the first time around so good to see it back, i heard good things at the time, and was able to score a pour at the new belgium location inside the denver airport. nice presentation in the rounded teku, hazy pale orange in color and very fizzy, an almost belgian looking wispy white head crowns it, looks nice. the aroma is a little soapy and ven for a second a tad fishy to me but i can pick out nelson hops for sure, some melon in the mix too to me, sweet orange peel, herbal bitterness as well, not just juice, the ferment might not be totally clean, or the line may not, which would be inexcusable at a place like this. the flavor is good, cantaloupe and citrus, a little sweet floral honey too, i dont taste much grain but i get a little sugar all the way through the off dry finish, not objectively sweet, but makes this go a little longer. the hops are fresh, some lime and some grapefruit as it warms, but i get a slight ester in the yeast im not sure is intentional or needs to be here, and it throws this a little weird for me. lots to like, but i would not call this a standout in their lineup. good not great. i dont get the branding either, this ranger thing is forced and tired...

Here's another pick up from the usual rotating six pack at the grocery store for $9. Easy to take a chance at that price and with New Belgium's decent track record in the series.

Pours a lightly hazy yellow color 1/3" white head. For having Nelson and Galaxy hops, neither one pushes that hefty nose like better versions of ipas do with these hops. Of course, those cans are $4-6 a piece, whereas these are like $1.50. Grain of salt taken relative to price. This brings just a mild melon presence instead of heaping tons of weed, pineapple, dank and guava like you might have expected from your local self distro 4 pack can place for $20.

The taste drops a minimal light barley base upside a slightly bigger hop presence, but one that is still probably in terms of quantity, lower than your average ipa out there these days. There is a light bitter alcohol sting which ain't bad for 7.7%, especially given that every other aspect of the beer seems more akin to a session ipa. Light on flavor, heft and hopping, you would expect this might have been a sledgehammer feel of alcohol or bitterness, but no. Normal carbonation level.

New Belgium is putting out a serviceable product at a really good price. You won't tell anyone they have to have this beer, it won't get you any nerd points with other nerds, but it will do the trick when you need a decent uncomplicated beer. Don't go looking for any huge Nelson or Galaxy hopped beer out of this though. They're minimal here.

This IPA was a pleasant surprise in how fruity it is. As is obvious on the image, there is no real buzzwords used like "Juicy" to indicate how great this combination of hops has turned out. It's not something that's incredibly special but is a nice change of pace incorporating a lot of tropical fruit notes. Won't change your life but if you're looking for an easy drinking IPA or something to introduce a friend into IPA beers, this is fantastic

Pours a very light golden color with about one finger of white head. Looks slightly like an unfiltered beer. Not hazy but unfiltered. Nice lacing on the glass.

Smell is tropical fruit all over. Is that papaya? Maybe some mango. Kind of like a blowout of a tropical fruit salad. Even picking up grapes. Very hard to pin point one thing as it seems to shift all over.

Taste is like it is layered. The top of my mouth I get the fruit salad thing while below I get a tingle that is a combined tingle. I can pick out sharp carbonation and some spicy hop notes in that tingle. Pretty light on the sweetness. There is a bit of resin at the back of the taste.

Mouth feel to me is a light medium. It kind of sits for a minute before the finish. The finish is pretty crisp. Not much bitterness in the finish.

Overall this is really a good beer for the tropical fruit enthusiast. Some of the flavors, like what I think is papaya, seem a bit exotic to my tongue. The bitterness is really cut down on this. I think the malts really pushed them back. I do pick up some sweet from the malts. Drinks easy for a 7.7% beer.

I really didn’t like it. Not much on the nose and the mouthfeel is like a gin drink or something. Thankfully Kelli likes it, or these would linger in the cabinet.

Light straw-gold body, a bit cloudy but mostly see-through; snappy NZ hops, grassy lime…more of the same on the palate, white wine spritzer, touch of mango. Good.
