Default ranger ipa...

I've been trying all kinds of new beer because now I'm brewing it. So far beer that I've loved: dos equis, sweetwater blue, blue moon seasonal spring blounde ale, and Mich. Amber bock wasn't too bad either. Now beer that I hated: ranger ipa... Tastes like somebody mixed up the ingredients and put 10lbs of hops instead of grains!

That is funny I mean I'm young so I've always drank bud and natural light like it was going outta style. Now I want more flavor, but I just didn't feel like it was balanced. I didn't think I was going to like the amber bock but it was actually pretty good. My favorite of all of them is probably the seasonal blue moon and the sweetwater being a close 2nd.

Give it time. The more you try, the more you will open up to bolder and increasingly complex beers.. that's a great excuse to go beer shopping

Ya I know! I also tried hefeveizen I probably butchered that spelling. It wasn't bad but had a kinda weird flavor. I have a question so that overwhelming hop flavor is that from late additions or ones that go the full boil?

I hear you. I am not a fan of hoppy beers. IMO, they are not complex, not bold, just crappy.

Try Fullers 1845. That is a great and complex beer.

I hear you...I tried a Ranger a week or so ago. I don't understand the hoppy beer fad. Maybe people like making these because they can hide the flaws under the massive amounts of hops.

it's funny, none of these posts have the recipe in them

actually it is the issue of BYO where they did a spread on New Belguim brewery.

If I recall it is a low starting OG for an IPA, like 1.059, basic malt bill with a good percetage of sugar like 10-20%, mashed super low.

and all the classics for the hops, chinook simcoe and amarillo

There......... it is a good beer too.

I really like Ranger, too, and the price is right! It was $6.99 a sixer at H.E.B. yesterday.

I can't stand any of the beers mentioned in the first post: dos equis, sweetwater blue, blue moon seasonal spring blounde ale, and Mich. Amber bock. Those are all just light macros that I just can't quite stomach.

Funny how different we are!

(I'm moving this thread out of the "commercial review" area, and into general beer talk, as there is no review in here.)
