4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color of beer between gold and copper, is present in the bottle yeast sediment. The aroma is bright and tropical mango, pineapple, lychee, and even something like that.
Taste, of course, also the hop with the powerful noble bitterness and all these tropical fruits from the flavor level low enough sweetness, bitterness is balanced most of the Corn-grain nuances than sweetness. The consistency is soft and creamy beer, density is clearly visible. The finish is fruity oily, bitter and long.
What can I say? It is canonical, right, striking the American IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Maker: Widmer Brothers, Portland,Oregon, USA
Beer: Upheaval IPA (bottled, 330ml)
Style: American IPA
"Widmer Brothers Brewing is located in beautiful and brew-friendly Portland, OR. Our publicly-held brewery since 1984] [employs over 150 people who are as passionate about quality craft beer as Kurt & Rob themselves."
Colour: Light orange, slightly cloudy, medium white head
Nose: Sweetish pineapple, floral hops, subdued medicinal notes
Texture: Not watery, a wee bit oily, soft
Taste: Pineapple and bitter grapefruit at first, strong floral hoppiness, not the least bit sweet, mild medicinal notes. Then, a tiny bit of sweetness creeps into the still dominantly hoppy taste, pineapple fruit stays. A bit resinous now, too. Finish is bitter grapefruit and orange peel. Moderately bitter (and not too long-lasting), still powerfully hoppy aftertaste.
Impressions: Because of the dominant hops you won’t feel the 7.0% at first. But it’s on the softish side, with its pineapple notes, only a wee bit resinous. Not quite as impressive as I expected.
