4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The amber color and hazy body, had this beer looking almost like a textbook DIPA, but the pinkie thin head was not long lasting and spoiled the look somewhat. The smell had some citric hops and some pine, but wasn’t as assertive as a DIPA can be. The taste was very citric, with grapefruit, mandarin oranges, and tangerine, with mineralized mid palette feel, and some candy like sweetness. The finish was citric with some pith bitterness. The mouthfeel was medium to thick and slippery, rather than sticky. Nice overall, but I like my DIPAs more extreme in their approach.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color moscatel, apenas espuma. Aroma marcado, lupulado. Uva también. En boca potente, licórica. Bien equilibrada con dulce uva y amargor notable al final sin perder el dulzor. Buen punto de gas que realza el conjunto. Notable.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber, clear initially but turning hazy, tall and loose head.
Medium body, full flavored, silky texture, hot, rich, mouthfeel, long but disappointing finish.
Bitter, sweet, goodenough acidity,
Very malty, barley candy, alcoholic flavors, bitter but not very flavorful hops.
Many good qualities, would be better with more aromatic hops.

Bottle, brought by a friend!
As Nelson Imperial IPA! Pours hazy orange yellow with a small creamy head. Smell has strong fruity hops, caramel and herbs. Starts strong hoppy, very herbal, fruity with some grapes. Finish is fruity with grapes, orange and a hint of pear, but also very herbal and slight warming. Nice one!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Slightly hazy amber colour with a mediumsized off-white head that leaves lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, some sweet malts as well as a stinging tone from the alcohol. Flavour is tropical fruit juice with some gluelike sweetness (alcohol + hop in the mix probably gives this kind of not too pleasant gluelike sweetish notes). Not all too bitter in the finish, but does lack something to balance the alcohol up.

Gold color. Scumy head. Sweet hop taste. Round sweet malt front. Big hop taste but not too bitter actually. The alcohol really brings this all together.

Rated from notes taken 28 Aug 2011 -- Very much enjoyed this. Might be my favorite beer from Widmer. Grassy hops and malt body are yummy.
