3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours near clear pale gold with a short head. Minimal retention and decent lace. Soft sweet aroma of oranges and light spice. Medium bitter, light sweet flavor. Medium-light body, thin-oily texture, and a grapefruity bitter-dry finish. Better than average IPA.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2012 So it is warmer out today then the last time I rated this beer. Still enjoy it and will buy it again. Poured into a glass slighty cloudy, orange-yellow. First smell is grapefruit, pine and citrus. Tasting hops and grapefruit with some grassy notes and spiec. Very refreshing. Still loving it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orange yellow with a nice fizzy head. Very soft nose of floral, pine and citrus. Gorgeous hops and bitter citrus flavor notes with grapefruit in the beginning followed by a muted toasty malt profile. Overall it’s fairly tasty. Compared to the more assertive West Coast IPAs, this is very soft and gentle. I like it, a solid effort...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light hazy golden with a thin layer of white foam. Nose shows some grapefruit, fresh grass, light prickly sweetness. Flavor
Is similar, a tad boozy and disjointed, but much better overall than the others I have had in this series so far.

single from HEB, opted out of the sixer for grapefruit medicine reasons .. . deep gold .. low foam, light lacing .. . nice solid grapefruit bitterness .. . session-rific feel to it, i like this but the finish is quite weak but my mom really liked it .. . .

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A great tasting beer. Pale amber coloured. My only real criticism is that the carbonation doesn’t feel quite right.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at Marcellars. Gold-orange with a small head. Nose is citrus and resin with a touch of Honey-Nut Cheerios. Taste is the same, with a big finish of resin and some peppery citrus. Light-medium bodied, this easy drinker is fairly smooth with low carbonation and well dried on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-sampled at the Las Cruces tour De Beer festival July 2012-pours bright clear orange with a small soapy white head. nose is very citrus rind orange peal lemon, grapefruit-nice! lots of grapefruit rinds and juicy resin-love it! flavors are very juicy lots of grapefruit and pine. lots of resin and pine on the finish-a very much "eric style" ipa here. I think Widmer has really become a true contender in the mass-micro market. Another well done beer from this series.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber gold with a 1/2" white head. some minoe lace. Hoppy, grapefruit and pine resin aroma. Bitter taste with some grapefruit and spice. Not as much as you might expect from the description. Bitter finish and aftertaste. Moderate bodied.
