New Belgium Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale.

What happened to Ranger IPA? Now it's Voodoo Ranger? Why Voodoo? Why not? I don't know, don't ask me. Apparently, they've re-branded and newly created a bunch of beer with this voodoo theme.

Brewed and canned by New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, Colorado. & Asheville, North Carolina. 12 fluid ounces. Acl. by vol. 5.5%.

It's a hazy orange color, with a thick, lush slathering of ivory foam on top. Looking great.

In the nose: big, bright, beautiful citrus. Fresh and piney, pithy, pungent. Grapefruit, orange, lemon. Nice.

In the mouth: More of that and then some. Juicy, fruity, and deliciously bitter. This is tasty. And it suddenly dawns on me: is this the New Belgium version of a NE IPA, hazy, juicy and lightly bitter? Maybe, maybe. It's a tasty IPA, and you can drink it. Yum.
