New Belgium Ranger IPA

New Belgium Ranger IPA

I just discovered it’s American Craft Beer Week! So to celebrate (well it’s a good excuse anyway), I’ve been drinking some New Belgium – more specifically the Ranger IPA. Apparently that makes me a beer ranger.

Anyway, what I like about this beer is how it combines the citrus / floral / fruity flavors of three different hops with the dark caramel of malts. The Ranger IPA is definitely my favorite of all the New Belgium beers, and I highly recommend it.

Classic instrumental hip hop and downtempo music.

Founders All Day IPA

I write about music all the time, so I thought it might be a nice change of pace to talk about one of my other passions: beer.  While I try to take all things in moderation, I do consider myself a connoisseur of IPAs, pilsners, stouts, and other brews.  My love for all things ale might stem from my proximity to the beer capital of the USA, or maybe I just have a taste for the tang of hops.  Either way, I like beer so it seems appropriate to share some suggestions.  Maybe you’ll discover one you like too.
