3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured medium amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma and flavor leaned more toward the malty than hoppy. Quite a lot of caramel and doughy malt; moderate fruitiness; and mild to moderate bitterness, some orange and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel. A very solid IPA.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with lots of piney hop aroma. Flavor is a nice hop burst highlighted by citrus and pine. Another good rotator series IPA.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of marmalade and biscuit. Very mellow, this might be a little old, but not much: some caramel, biscuit, oranges and lemon. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Darkest of these latest three rotator IPAs ... deep woody-amber. Rocky, gluey head. This has the barest of outdoorsy aromas; it drinks with a rich woodsiness of an English ale, with a little bit of an American hop kiss. Exceptionally well balanced with a big, rich malt backdrop. My kind of IPA. (#4859, 12/16/2012)

Gold, clear, white head. Piney-citrus hops, some grapefruit, a little caramel malt, some toast, some lingering bitterness in finish.

Nice hoppy blend with a bit of bitterness going on for an IPA. A puffy, white/beige little head that disappears and thins out as the beer does. An interesting fact about this brew is that it supports charity scholarships, so drink up!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy diminishing white 2 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are pine, citrus fruits and sweet pale, crystal caramel malts. Taste are sweet sublime malts with mild orange, pine, grapefruit, lemon, and melon hops. Yummy. Palate was creamy soft CO2 with meduim body, then lasting slightly bitter,malty sweet clean soft finish. A good rotator IPA from Widmer...

On draft at spacebar. Pours a deep clear deep copper with a white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Orange zest and sweet malts. Not your typical IPA. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear amber with a medium head. Nose of fresh pine and resin. Not as hop-forward as most contemporary IPAs, but fresh and clean. Tastes more like a wet hopped beer. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate frothy white head. Nose is floral and hoppy. Taste has that bitterness to it, but tastes very clean and smooth. I like this as an IPA.
