The Hype is for real!! This one is great. This is a classic true double IPA. Tastes very fresh. Very floral and pungent. Soft on the palate. Aftertaste is awesome. Sweetness is right on. Incredible enticing aroma.

on tap from papago 6/3/10.
bronze-y copper color with a soft off white head and a ton of lacing types.
aroma and flavor= holy grapefruit!... pith, meat and white grapefruit juice mixed with caramel and cream. the palate is a bit too sweet but it does have a nice bitter finish and lingering grapefruit aftertaste.... a bit one dimensional.
the light body is crisp and really easy to drink however. 6/3/5/4/13/3.1

Draught at Pour 24, Las Vegas, NV. Clear deep golden, small head. Intense grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body. Very hoppy - salt, resin and grapefruit. Solidly malty, a bit syrupy.Very bitter finish. Packed with flavour, but a bit rough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Orange and pretty clear in my glass with a small white head. Nose has tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), blueberries, a little grass. Flavor is fairly sweet as a whole, with a pleasant fruity hop profile and medium bitterness. I’ll agree with Widmer: the Nelson Sauvin hops are really nice. A pretty enjoyable DIPA, and very easy to just sit back and drink. Definitely the best I’ve had from Widmer to date.

draft. One of the best named beers ever; huge hop profile... up front. Lacks a lingering palate. STILL, so many fruits going on mango, pineapple, hints of spruce too... simple amazing hops. Extra points for stupid-easy drinkability. More alcohol needed, maybe.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. hops were boring, body was a bit heavy, no really DIPA bite.

[2944-20100625] Sample. Mango peach fruit aroma has a hint of sweat. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy white head. Mango fruit hops syrup flavour. Medium body. Interesting fruitiness, very mango.
Overheard: "Tastes like juice."

Wow...pretty damn good...huge hints of grapefruit on the first sip, healthy DIPA but not over-bearing, and man, what a kick! Very fruity/citrus on the nose, pleasant, robust, and very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear dark gold, white head fades to a medium lace. Sweet/fruit hop aroma, berry flavor balanced with medium-roast malt. Medium body with notable hops but a constant sweetness all through to the finish. Lightly carbonated. The nose and start is outstanding, middle and finish need a bit of work.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear copper gold with a creamy white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet pine hop. Thin mouthfeel with a smooth piney hops with grapefruit and nice smooth finish. Hides the alcohol well, a very impressive IIPA from Widmer.
