Share This Review

Voodoo Ranger IPA is an American IPA brewed by New Belgium Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a clear gold with a thin head of white froth that dissolves rapidly.

Aroma

Mosaic and Amarillo hops provide a strong, grassy aroma.

Flavor

The palate opens with juicy flavors of citrus, pineapple, and mango. Caramel malt follows and then the taste buds are struck with pine and resin. The bitterness recedes just at the finish, leaving fruity syrup to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is spot on with a medium body and ample carbonation.

Overall

Its presentation is lackluster and hopheads will likely wish its palate was as hoppy as the aroma. Put that aside and the Voodoo Ranger IPA is a well-balanced brew that offers a delightful blend of fruit and hops.

Recommended Pairings

New Belgium recommends the following food pairings with their Voodoo Ranger IPA: grassy goat bleu cheese, grilled peaches, and honey glazed grilled chicken.

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
