28 sept 2013, bottle. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is soft grapefruit rind hops. Thin almost med body and moderately fizzy. Pleasantly balanced ipa. Grapefruit rind citrus but not very powerful, cereal malt background but not too sweet. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12 oucne bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This poured clear amber and had some beige foam. A musty aroma of hops with biscuits. The flavor is more pronounced. It is a classic west coast IPA with rye. Was this wet hopped? Maybe so. Rye and floral. A biting bitterness makes for a flavorful beer. The hops taste green and fresh. Caramel comes in late with the biscuits.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
This was shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured amber with a big bubbled olff-white head and very sticky lacing. Nose shows rye. Medium in body. Flavor is rye, citrus and floral hops. More flavor than aroma. Mild bitter finish. Very easy drinking. Quite nice.

MrBunn (2453) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle. Body is a clear coppery color with with a smallish head and aromas of Cascade (or something real close in my book), caramel and rye. Flavor is lemon and cat pee with some caramel and light brown sugar and a little rye tang in the finish.

commonmac (264) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle purchased at Four Firkins consumed at Jackpot Junction. Medium orange color with crisp head and related lacing. Aromatic hops on the nose leading into a unique rye malt and hoppy flavor. Slightly bitter and not entirely balanced profile. A pretty good effort on an IPA twist. Lingering slightly unpleasant aftertaste prevents this one from a higher score. As Widmer offerings go, this is better than average.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft at F&H Fort Worth. Nice orange color with a foamy white head. Very fruity and piney aroma. Pithy bitterness in the flavor with a long finish. Fine.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1654) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2013
6.2% from Rakuten. Nice orange-hold color which I associate with IPAs. Nice fruity/floral hop aroma with a few rye spicy notes. It has a smooth fairly full-bodied mouthfeel. The flavor is caramel malt sweetness, then a touch of bitter pine & finishes on a fruity bitter hop mixed with malt note. An easy drinking IPA, not amazing but very solid.

TheHOFF43 (1734) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours is hazy, decent aroma of hops and rye. Flavor is also decent hops and rye, nothing special but solid.
