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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light amber with a thin head. Aromas of citrus, pine and yeast. Taste has some grassy notes with the grapefruit coming through afterwards, but not as much as I was expecting. Some caramel malts thrown in but nothing really stands out, not even the grapefruit. Ok but was expecting a bit more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium gold with a moderate haze - aroma of moderately honey-sweet maltiness, tropical and citrus fruits, lightly citric and piney hops - moderate carbonation in the mouth - flavor is quite dry, with crisp, crackery malts from the front end to the middle - middle brings strong hop bitterness compounded by the addition of grapefruit - thankfully, at least at this stage, it isn’t overpowering because a light sweetness develops to balance - however, as the finish approaches, the beer dries out again, and the bitterness and strng grapefruit becomes too much as it lingers on the palate for far too long - it’s a decent IPA, but the addition of grapefruit peel proves to be overkill, adding too much undo bitterness - the other qualities redeem it a bit.
