3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold with an orange tinge, head is a clean white that proves lasting. Aroma of lime and citrus, flowers, and a light spice. Flavor is a light bitter hop bite at first followed by some spice, pine, and sweet citrus. Palate is light with a slight carbonation. A good session IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, flowers).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Pretty good for Widmer...no off notes, although it’s certainly one-dimensional. Pretty good balance too. Simple, ordinary, and I’m not a fan of the resin of course, but it could have been much worse.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a finger of head on a clear, light straw colored body.
The aroma is a sharp pine and lemon. Upfront and good.
The taste has moderate pine bitterness with a clean malt finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a great mixture of lager and IPA. Nicely hopped with a clear body and a clean finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle @ Kaisla
Pours clear golden with a foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramely malts, some hints of aged hoppy notes and vegetables. Taste is grassy, hoppy and slightly caramely with hints of bready malts and sweet citrus. Finish is sweetish, caramely and hoppy with hints of grass and bready malts. Okay, but doesn’t feel very fresh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden orange pour with white quickly dissipating head. Toasted aroma with a bit orange caramel to top it off. Interesting mix of the sweet and bitter duration with a crisp finish. Definitely would go for another.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
I love IPAs, and this beer was a disgrace. Bought a six pack from Harris Teeter, returned the remaining five because I couldn’t stomach anymore.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear rich golden pour with ring of white head. Nose is nice refreshingly clean "c" hop notes. Flavor is a little more bitter than I normally would care for, and finishes with a lingering resiny bitterness. Missing the fruity estery notes that normally come with an ale. Quite quaffable, but i just don’t care for the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle @ Kaisla. Clear golden, lacing, white head. Citrusy and sweet tropical fruits, hops in aroma. Flavor has malt, hops, citrus, grass. Bitter hoppy finish. First you get the malty lager flavor and soon the fruity hoppyness takes over. Refreshing.
