New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA

This 9.0% ABV Imperial India Pale Ale is from New Belgium Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. It uses Mosaic, Delta, Bravo, Centennial, Cascade, and Calypso hops. It is one of several new year round beers they are offering.

The beer pours light copper in color. There is a billowing tall head of off-white foam. The aroma is passion fruit, melons, floral and citrus. The taste follows the aromas, adding in some deeper, rich tropical tones, like guava. The beer drinks very smooth and soft, with light carbonation. The finish is dry and moderately bitter, just tamping down what is some ample sweetness from the malt. This is pretty good, especially considering the price (it was just under $9 for a six pack) for decently tasty 9% Imperial IPA.
