Yup I could tell it was a west coast IPA. It was a great beer, just not for me. I am not expecting to be blown away by the Fat tire but I had to get it for its reputation. But for $2.79 a bomber for 2 beers I would enjoy even if they aren't my favorites I am happy with them!
Some of my friends have asked me to point them to different beers to help them figure out different flavors. It used to be "Try a good oktoberfest to taste a maltier beer, and get a bottle of Sierra Nevada torpedo to taste a hop forward beer". I think Ranger IPA just replaced Torpedo for my hoppy recommendation!
