Beer Review: New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA

The Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA from New Belgium Brewing Company joins the ranks of New England IPAs and the craze that still seems to be sweeping the country. And, this ale is the subject of my latest beer review. Coming in with an alcohol account of 7.5% Abv and 50 IBU, this one here seems to come in packing a nice little punch…a fruity refreshing punch. So, what are my thoughts on this one?

I must admit that I was a little doubtful about what this one may offer and I have to say that I was somewhat surprised. The beer itself showed a nice appearance in color and was backed up nicely with the lacing of the foamy head. The notes did well providing citrus and tropical tones, although they weren’t as strong as some others that I have had of this style. However, in talking flavor there was somewhat of a juicy quality and smoothness that went along with the bitterness as a nice balance. Carbonation sat well with the beer and overall the experience was pretty decent, which is why I rated this one out to be an 85. Check out my video review to see more of my thoughts on this newer offering and remember, there’s always time…so Get Your Beer On!
