emacgee (3958) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Pours a strikingly sharp and clean copper with two fingers of sandstone had. Very nice nose, lots of floral and citrusy notes, zesty with a very nice balancing sweetness. Light toasted malt character with some bready notes. Dry spicy palate with medium body and round carbonation. Very nice ipa.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Clear amber orange, big beige head with good lacing. Aroma- some floral, some citrus, some oregano, some pine/wood/earth. Taste is not offensive but is a little dull. Medium bitter finish. Not bad.

bb (6726) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a light tan head. Grapefruit aroma. Pine and grapefruit flavor with light earth and light spice. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Pine and grapefruit lingers with earth.

travita (3845) - Frisco, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Amber color, very clear, melted butter colored head. The smell is rye, slight perfume, hops, citrus, grass, and pine. The taste is hops, decent bitterness, rye, chalky, and ok.

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 31, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2011 pretty mahogany colored body with decent head. seems very full bodied for only 6.2%, nice and pricky but not thin carbonation. flavor has some caramel sweetness and earthy undertones, probably due to the rye malt used, definitely some spice going on. kind of disappointing short finish. better than the falconer by a bit but the x114 one was definitely the best one so far.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2011
bottle. clear amber. brighter hop nose than the previous variants but still far too dull and peaked for IPA, and the obligatory chalk / vitamin yeast dirtiness is still present, as is a metallic tin note. medium body, lightly chewy / syrupy across the middle, drying somewhat into a creamed orange / caramel malt / rye finish. spice is certainly there, and it’s a bit odd to have it linger so late but the hop acid hold its well, though the hop flavors seems to slowly gravitate towards a celery stew situation. it’s about the only nice thing about this beer. it’s ain’t bad, no, but it’s nothing special and when you’re putting out a new IPA and going for a "twist", you gotta bring more than this. this is pretty plain and uninteresting, and there’s enough of that out there already.

BK7 (720) - Turner, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle. Labled as Rotator Series O’Ryely IPA (no Nelson on the label). Label also calls out 6.4% alcohol. Strong grapefruit aroma. Medium bitterness throughout, but not very strong on the finish. Crisp and dry. Easy drinking brew.

raphael (865) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2011
on tap at mickey finn’s. why is it this dark, on the amber side of brown, with a modest but persistent khaki head. not a strong aroma but decent with resiny hops and caramel. Light in body while tingling the mouth with enough bitterness. IN falvors the resiny hops, caramle, hint of roast malt. crisp and clean overal, so well crafted its almost a little too smooth (which can happen with widmer.) smooht clean finish.

lupulicious (30) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Draft @ belmont station. Reddish gold color, slight chill haze. Nice rye punch, but not overwhelming, balanced with the hops. Loose eggy lace, cream colored loose head. Rye bread aroma spiked with pepper. Hop profile has grass, pepper and spice, tiny bit of lemon.

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle... Poured deep amber/orange with a thick white head. Lots of hop bitterness and the spice that meshed with the earthy, grassy hops. Some yeast esters to offer some fruity sweetness to balance.
