COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re turning things deliciously upside down with an aggressively hopped cold-fermented brew that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma and character of an IPA. PROST! To turning convention on its head.

Bottle... Poured hazy, golden with a mild forming head. Nose was odd. A little sulfur and fish notes. Taste fine though. Hoppy and bitter with citrus and a clean finish. Low sweetness and yeast notes with some added breadiness to balance the resinous hoppy tones.

From bottle. Clear golden color with lasting white head. Intense aroma of floral and citrus. Citrus hop flavor with a nice smoothness from the lagering. Not my favorite IPL, but a good one. Hope more breweries start making this style.

Crisp and easy to drink. Malt flavors are clean, slightly toasty, lightly sweet (bread and caramel). Hops are very green, grassy and floral. Balanced bitterness. Hop aromas are pleasant, though a bit restrained (hay, grass). I’m digging the IPL trend; just brewed one myself, in fact.

The bottle says it’s an IPA. This website says Lager. If I am not mistaken, the "Rotator" series of beers are all IPA’s, so I trust Widmer over Ratebeer.

I doubt this should have been entered in as an IPA, but I couldn’t pick out a style that made better sense. Please feel free to change it... Cheers, Toby. Picked up tonight at the COOP for about $1.50... Pours a very clear golden.. nice white head leaves a lot of nice lacing. Nose is clean hops with a tad bit of malt... little else... hops are spicy/grassy and a bit of orange zest. Flavor mirrors the nose but lacks the bitterness of an IPA.... a nice clean hop flavor .. no ale fruitiness which is honestly a little bit odd IMO. Body is light/carbonation good... very very drinkable. I will tear these up once the Boise heat comes.
