New Belgium Ranger IPA

New Belgium Brewing Company, Ft. Collins, CO

Tip your hat to our Beer Rangers in the field who inspired this well-balanced IPA packed with Simcoe, Cascade and Chinook hops.  Count on citrus aromas and piney surroundings.

6.5% ABV

Clear golden amber in color with a strong hoppy nose with more pine notes than citrus.  Tastes bitter up front  but the citrus kicks in at the end.  Very balanced: the fruit and the bitterness of the hops compliment each other well.  A touch of piney bitterness lingers into the aftertaste.

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  Yes
