They're headed right for us

New Belgium brewing has just released their first bottled IPA and it could be from here. I just tried my "sample" (yeah... it's 3:00, who cares, it's Bend) of New Belgium's Ranger IPA and it is the real deal folks. It has that citrus aroma when you first open it and the mouth drying effect of 70 IBU's, but some how finishes clean. I'm not sure how long they worked on this one but I think they hit it right on the mark. NW IPA's look out.
