Bottle served in a tulip. Pours clear orange with a medium sized off-white head. Decent retention and lace. Nice hoppy aroma of grass and light pine. The attack is quite bitter with a hint of sweetness. Medium-light body, average carbonation, thin texture and a dry, bitter finish. Light but solid. A session IPA

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 15, 2011
12 oz bottle. Clear golden with a pure white, dense head. Aroma of grapefruit pith, flowers, other fruity citrus, and some light malt in the background. Flavor is bitter grapefruit flavored hops with a malt flavor that comes in at the end. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly rough, abrasive mouth feel. Good IPA from Widmer, just not sure Iím as big a fan of the Citra hop that everyone else seems to be.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2011
Various six packs purchased at places around town. Pours the color of apple juice with a moderate but quick fading white head. Aroma is a pure burst of citrus hops. Very similar to Drifter but without the caramel malt backing. Very one note aroma. Taste is also very citrus, but with a bit of pepper as well. I quite enjoyed this one at first, but itís started to fade a little bit towards mediocrity for me as I drink more. Still a decent beer, but I much prefer Drifter and KGB.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
Appearance: Pours a translucent amber gold with a head that subsides to about 1/8 inch of off white foam.

Aroma: A big burst of grapefruit and orange zest along side some noticeable floral notes.

Taste: Danky citrus, slightly sweet malt alongside fairly dry pale malt, finishes bitter. The bitterness doesnít linger, but invites you back for another sip.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation that takes a backseat to the bitterness.

Overall: Above average, fresh, smells great, looks great.

boFNjackson (4162) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle... Poured pale golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, resinous black papper spice, and dank earthiness. The hops were something else here. Bitter, but light and balanced. Clean mouthful with an easy going finish. Hops had lots of dirty, resinous spice, with some biscuit malt sweetness too.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 11, 2011
Pours clear gold with a nice frothy white head that has good retention. Aroma of nice crisp citrus and floral hops, also peach/plum/stone fruits in general. Taste is good, some grassy bitterness and a lot of floral and spicy hops with lemon/orange peel. Bitter finish is of moderate length. Pretty light bodied overall, crisp, easy drinking. Nice smooth carbonation.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2011 Yes it made it out of the Gausthaus! 12 oz from a 6-pack from Roths Vista Market, Salem. $6.59 Typical light orange coloured IPA body, head is huge,rocky off white. WOW the aroma is huge resiny,spruce very fresh and in your face. Taste is very starange for the average IPA, what can be descibed as fresh hop juice tea..veryb low carbonation..like i said like hop juice. Weird..i liked it butvlack of carbonation-TOTALLY does not lend to likability. On second thoughts this is just a mess.. Terrible

On tap at Widmer - Light color for an IPA. Spicy hoppy aroma and flavor. This is a very nice IPA. Iíll be interested to see if this one makes it out of the Gasthaus.

neepsntatties (1233) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Had this on tap at Widmerís brew house in Portland, OR during Zwickelmania weekend 2010. Colour... copper-amber with no head. Nose... very resinous hops with hints of grapefruit skin. Palate... nice burst of hops up front, slightly sweet and bitter with generous citrus and a lengthy finish. Nicely done!
