3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a light pale gold liquid topped with a layer of foam head. Aroma is obvious smell of IPA beer and had a mild profile of green hop pellets. The drink is bitter and has aftertastes of salty. Actually one of the better more rounded out IPA’s I have tasted from Widmer Bros. Surely the amusing recipe out of this boring 12-pack.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Clear golden color with a decent white head and good lacing.
Fruity and piney nose, with some herbal notes and faint sulfur.
Clean light malt, med-hi bitterness, citrus peels, grass and bread.
Medium bodied, quite effervescent, refreshing and pretty OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Un liquide embouteillé le 23 octobre 2013. Une robe dorée et un petit col mousseux qui ne reste pas. Au nez, des houblons qui sont vifs. De la marijuana, des épices, des céréales pils et un mélange fruité. En bouche, beaucoup de fraîcheur houblonnée. Ça pique, c’est amer et la levure révèle sa genèse. Au palais, un corps de moyenne densité qui révèle un caractère huileux. Des bulles qui sont bien actives. La finale est assez intense avec ses notes herbacées et son soupir épicé.

Pours pale from a bottle into a room temperature glass. Heads lasts a bit. Aroma: gentle hops pop out of the glass, some citrus, a hint of grassy malt. Flavor: lager but with much more character and hops; some citrus, grassy malts. Mouth feel: lightly prickly. Good.

Smell floral and lager sweetness
Taste honey, bit boozy, hoppy, sticky
IPL isn’t a good style unless it is done right, this one isn’t

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into lager glass. Pours a lightly cloudy honey gold color with a thick head that dissipates quickly leaving behind little lace. Aroma is definitely IPA with notes of orange peel, spruce pine, and hints of cloves. Taste is a little bland but is definitely lager-esque with an acetic initial flavor finishing lightly bitter. Light-medium body, soft carbonation, watery feel with a light alcoholic finish. I love the idea of this cold brewed IPA and it is a great result.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells like an IPA but drinks like a lager. Aroma floral with some yeast/bready qualities maybe a little orange or other citrus lightly present. Appearance is clear golden yellow lacing present throughout with a nice creamy head that stays throughout. Taste is crisp with a slightly salty bitterness that is pine and roasted malts and pepper. Great balance and it finishes peppery but not bitter. Lager like finish with hops everywhere. This is almost a sessionable IPA/IPL from Widmer’s rotator series. Its exceptional medium to light body with good carbonation and a long finish. Its what I expect from the series which has featured amazing others including O’Ryely and Falconers IPA’s. Its a perfect IPA choice for someone who normally doesn’t like IPA’s.

Didn’t find it at all hoppy. I thought it was kind of on the sweet and fruity side and didn’t complement my meal as I hoped it would.
