First tried Ranger a few months ago, and I really enjoy it.

It pours a nice golden hue, with just enough lacing and about a finger head that dissipates as quickly as it needs to.

The smell is pine, hops, a hint of lemon and a dash of malt.

The taste is pretty groovy, first pine, then hops, followed by malty goodness and a smooth transition into a playful bite as it goes down, just enough of each taste to let you know it's an IPA without going to far into the bitter zone.

The mouthfeel is about what you expect, slightly watery but acceptable.

Overall, I enjoy Ranger, and would drink one any time I have a chance to as it is well balanced without being too overly bitter.

I would definitely call it a mild IPA though, and people wanting to get into the IPA style could get off to a great start here.

Absolutely one of my favorite beers!! honestly can go good with anything, but you are better off enjoying this beer by itself. it has so much too offer, such great combination between the yeast and malt's making this an outstanding brew. you can put this on my list of top beers.
