Beer Review: New Belgium Voodoo Ranger IPA

Recently, I had the chance to check out the Voodoo Ranger IPA from New Belgium Brewing Company. This offering is just one more of the offerings under their Voodoo series. The beer itself has an ABV of 7% along with an IBU of 50, making it pretty much what should be expected from this style. The beer itself was highlighted by a nice appearance, aroma, taste and overall quality about it. I was able to easily receive a nice bittering quality with the beer and did like the semi-dry feel on the finish. Comprised also of a nice medium body, this beer was pretty solid overall. Check out the video to see my full thoughts on why I rated this one as a 4 on Untappd, firmly making it very good in my opinion.

Brewer Notes:

Bursting with tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavors from Mosaic and Amarillo hops, this golden IPA is perfectly bitter with a refreshing, sublime finish.

TASTING NOTES

BODY: Medium body.
