VooDoo Ranger Juicy Mandarina IPA
I'm still trying to figure out the New Belgium VooDoo Ranger series. It has nothing to do with all of their other beers, their Belgian-inspired names and brews. It would NEVER occur to me that this brand has anything to do with New Belgium. Weird marketing decision, I think.
Anyway, they are a lot smarter than I am and are super successful, so today I'm checking out their VooDoo Ranger Juicy Mandarina IPA, a special release packaged in a bomber. 6.5% alcohol. A story sets your expectations, suggesting filters for lots of things except this unfiltered beer.
Super hazy! Citrus, tangerine, super juicy aroma. Juicy, oranges and mandarina flavors. Sweet to start, very pleasant. There is, however, a citrus bitter answer. Lightly spicy. Very enjoyable.
