According to the New Belgium Brewing website, the Voodoo Ranger family is brewed with trendsetting hop and malt varieties—and served with a side of sarcasm. The Imperial IPA receives rave reviews, and it’s one of their top sellers. This is the brewery’s heavy weight champion for IPA flavor and strong 9% ABV.
Imperial IPAs (also referred to as Double IPAs) are a stronger, very hoppy variant of IPAs that typically have alcohol content above 7.5% by volume. New Belgium blends delta, bravo, centennial, cascade, calypso, and mosaic hops and brews a dark, smoky beer. It’s smooth, and tasty, and really inexpensive compared to any other Imperial IPAs. When poured into a glass, one can easily pick up the hop aroma, with pine and floral notes, and a hint of citrus peel.
If the Imperial IPA is a little too strong, give some of the other sarcastic Voodoo Rangers a try. Considering New Belgium recently added a Hazy Imperial IPA to the list of award-winning beers, NBB is taking its brewing innovations to the next level.
