New Belgium's Ranger IPA - pretty good, but also nothing outstanding as well. I was impressed with it's look and smell. It had good lacing, a great dark golden color, and a rich citrusy smell, but outside of that, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. There was plenty of after-taste for a normal IPA beer. Again, it was better than average, for me, but nothing I would go out of my way to partake of.
