New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Voodoo Ranger Starship IPA in January 2020.
Arriving as the first release of 2020 in New Belgium’s Voodoo Ranger Rotating IPA Series, Voodoo Ranger Starship IPA is a Hazy/Juicy India Pale Ale that features Galaxy hops and “unique mid-fermentation dry hopping techniques.” Clocking in at 7.7% ABV, Voodoo Ranger Starship IPA offers a “light to moderate sweetness” complemented by “notes of fresh grapefruit and citrus.”
“We are super excited to launch our first of many brands using a new to New Belgium dry hopping technique called mid-fermentation dry hopping. Years of research went into fine tuning this method and we know it is going to live up to the rest of the Voodoo Ranger series that took 2019 by storm.”
– Ross Koenigs, Research and Development Brewer at New Belgium
Voodoo Ranger Starship IPA released earlier this month (January 2020) and will stick around as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans (suggested retail price of $10.99) and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina and throughout the rest of New Belgium’s nationwide distribution area.
