Ranger IPA
« on: March 24, 2010, 06:57:59 PM »
New Belgium Ranger IPA. 70 IBU. 6.5 ABV. Very Hoppy with a slightly sweet finish. Balanced. Perfect.

Sounds good! I liked their Hoptober which btw I'm still polishing off, so I'll definitely replace it in the beer fridge with some Ranger.  8)

I was lucky enough to have New Belgium's Ranger IPA.  I loved it!  The pine/citrus aroma and sweet malty finish was fabulous.

This beer has inspired me to try to clone it.  So I ordered 8oz each of Chinook, Simcoe, Cascade hops.

More details coming... Follow my homebrewing of Ranger IPA here:

This beer suprised me a bit, as I have not been overly impressed with NB beers.  I would say Fat Tire was still their most interesting to me. This one was very nice and in my preferred IPA style, less bitterness and more flavor/aroma from the hops.  Very nice beer.

I have been meaning to pick up a six pack of this...I always seem to go right past it though.

I'll put it up on the list next time around!

Thanks!

+1.  I had this out of a can last night.  On the can it says "we're hoppy, you're happy" ;D

I love NB's Lips of Faith beers, but most of their regulars kind of dissapoint.  I always liked 1554, and this beer was also surprisingly good!
