The veer pours a perfectly orange color with a big semi loose off white head.

The aroma is melony hops right after the pour but this gives way to some caramel and spicy character.

The flavor hits the right notes of snappy rye flavor and grapefruit-y hops in a pretty good harmony. The caramel that seemed so present in the aroma is far less defined in the flavor (thankfully) but does give the beer a mild and well controlled sweetness. The beer is enjoyably bitter throughout and has a moderately dry finish with more melon like hops coming through towards the back of the palate.

This Rotator IPA thing seems to be turning out pretty cool, they’re 2 for 3 with me on really liking these beers, and from a brewery I pretty well swore off six or seven years ago.

Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a big spicy rye mixed with a decent hop. Flavor is about the same, a nice rye to start then comes a lingering hop. Widmer really went for the rye in this one and it really works. Just enought spicy rye with a minor piney hop.

12oz bottle 6/17/13 (Binny’s Naperville Mix A Six)-36° in shaker-Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of rye. Taste of hops, malt, pine, and citrus. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down quite easy. Nice brew.

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.

reggiedunlop (3632) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber/caramel with a medium off white head. Aromas very caramely with mild earthy/rye spice. Flavor follows suit...caramely sweet and doughy but earthy bitterness too. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/rye and bitter/dry.

Clear copper color, head that quickly drops to rim, lots of dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt overtaken by cleansing hops. The two move in tandem to the finish. Excellent food beer (especially pizza!), uncomplicated, easy to drink. Recommended.

It poured a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and some grapefruit. It had a medium mouthfeel with some pine hops and a nice lingering bitter finish. A good IPA.

Terminus (3541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2012
tap at 1702 Tucson, AZ-pours bright clear orange with a small soapy eggshel head. nose is bright citrus and rye. flavors exhibit the rye more than the hops. this is kind of wierd and not really all that well put together. ok body with a long rye dry finish. a intersting brew but lacks much hops. Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye is way better if you ask me. Maybe i should have had more samples of this brew.

Beautiful copper hue; good head retention. Sweet and juicy nose is mouthwateringly inviting. Creamy, smooth and full texture. Toasty-spicy malts. Fantastic hop flavors are just bursting with citrus (grapefruit, tangerine, lemon), sugared spruce tips and sweet grass. Snappy, peppery bitterness with lingering notes of grass in the aftertaste. Tasty IPA. In the series thus far, I think I liked this one better than Falconer’s, but not as much as X-114.

Bottle pours a medium amber. Quite a bit of sediment clouded it up on the pour. Motley maly aroma, a bit of hop bite. Fairly bitter and the hop flavors were muted and seemed not fresh. MOstly greassy and woody. Not great
