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.

DocLock (8002) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear bright gold with 2-finger white head. Nose is resiny, piney, hops, pale malt, tangerinee and pineapple. Smells juicy. Tastes piney hoppy, pale malty, with notes of tangerine, sap, pineapple, and a crisp hop-heavy finish.

DialSquare (2846) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Had a couple of these on tap at the Portland Timbers game and like better than my original rating (it was likely fresh - so makes sense. Bumped a few points. 4/27/13: 12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Yellow pour wit a thin white head and good retention. Aroma is muted citrus, floral hops. Tastes are caramel, bread and grass. Not a lot going on here.

Light amber in color, clear with a white head. Great IPA hops aroma and flavor. Nice buttery lager flavors this was a nice tasty beer.

boFNjackson (4156) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2013
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.

pdx77 (1425) - Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2013
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.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2013
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.
