Smells good, looks good, tastes good. Not remarkable but eminently drinkable. Crisp, hoppy taste with tart aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: pours an amber ale with brilliant clarity and a single finger of peanut head which falls father quickly to a sheet of the same. Spotty lace.
S: Citrus with a hint of artificial watermelon. Some underlying malts are subdued. interesting, but not special.
T: Sweet. This beer is sweet with a bit of bitterness. The hops are flavorful with citric tones and some resiny flavors. I can dig it. Alcohol is surprisingly sharp.
M: The mouthfeel is a bit heavy for my preference and still a bit sharp. Wet finish. Higher carb than preferred.
O: Not bad, a few tweaks and this beer could be pretty nice.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a finger off white creamy head.
Smell is strong with citrus and some mango among other tropical fruit.
Starts off with a nice mango/citrus flavor. Very hop forward beer. Malts barely make an appearance and it finishes with a juicy wet mango bitterness as well.
Mouthfeel and carbonation are good.
Easy drinking good IPA, but nothing overly special about it. I like the mango flavor, but otherwise not terribly complex.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Had on draft at Moriartys. Clear orange brown pour. Foamy white head that lasts and lasts. Combo of a black pepper spice mix and a big piney hop bite balanced with some caramel malt flavors. Stings a bit on the tongue, but thats not a bad thing. Despite the lightly chewy malt notes this is a big IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a very interesting IPA, I think I like citra hops. Light yellow-orange with lacing. Smells kind of dank, good smell. The flavor is nice citrus, pine, dank. This may be widmer brothers best beer as far as Iím concerned and at 8.50 per sixer itís probably the best hoppy beer for the money around here.
