This week's Sunday Night Suds pays homage to the upcoming NHL trading deadline by looking at New Belgium's Voodoo Ranger IPA.
The Voodoo Ranger IPA is part of a new line of New Belgium products including a Voodoo Ranger 8 Hop Pale Ale and Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA. To date, I have only seen the Voodoo Ranger IPA which was available in singles at the Total Wine in Towson, MD and in Folly (mix) 12 packs in the NY area.
The Voodoo Ranger is dark golden in color and has nice lacing with coated the glass for at least 15 minutes after the pour. There is a good amount of hop bite with decent carbonation. The pine and citrus had some complexity and successive sips gave hints of grapefruit and other citrusy flavors. Additionally, although the beer was 7% abv, there was not a strong alcoholic flavor to the brew.
Not every brew produced by New Belgium is under kosher supervision. For a list of the New Belgium brews currently under supervision, please click on the link on the left side of my home page for my latest Kosher Beer List.
