Monday, February 1st marks the release of New Belgium’s first ever IPA, the Ranger IPA. There are going to be numerous release parties all over Seattle and the U.S. this evening kicking off the Ranger in style. The difference with our kick off party that evening is that we are giving every dollar spent on the New Belgium Ranger IPA for Haitian Relief. There’s nothing better than drinking for a cause.
So, here it finally is – New Belgium’s foray into the true American India Pale Ales. Bring out the hops! This clear amber beauty bursts at the starting gate with an abundance of hops: Cascade (citrus), Chinook (floral/citrus), and Simcoe (fruity) lead off the beer, with Cascade added again for an intense dry hop flavor. Brewed with pale and dark caramel malts that harmonize the hop flavor from start to finish, Ranger is a sessionable splendor for all you hopinistas. Thank your Beer Ranger!
