Brewed with 6 different hop varieties and 3 different grains, including wheat, Upheaval will be a fitting tribute, not only to the bold Northwest-style IPA, but to Kurt and Rob Widmer’s unapologetic attitude in legacy of innovation.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is pineapple, black pepper, resin, hops, caramel malt. Tastes hoppy, resiny, spicy peppery, somewhat weak of palate, with a dry finish.

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.

sound67 (264) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2015
Maker: Widmer Brothers, Portland,Oregon, USA Beer: Upheaval IPA (bottled, 330ml) Style: American IPA ALC.VOL.: 7.0% "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.

Marstonlad (544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle at Oak Barrel, Helsinki-V airport. Pours hazy golden with a little white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma displays prominent tropical fruitiness with especially orange and mango present. Taste is dryish, medium bitter initially but building toward finish. Very aromatic American hoppiness; tropical fruits and some grass. The palate is medium bodied, crisp and highly drinkable, moderately carbonated. Excellent fruity and hoppy IPA.

Oscbert (1128) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Citrusy fruity hops with heavy maltiness of caramel, biscuit, bread, in the nose Pours a very hazy golden Amber color, didn't realize this was bottle conditioned. Lots of yeast floaters. Small white head Very well balanced in flavor for an IPA. Betty and citrus hops dominate, but bready and caramel malts have a huge role. Medium bodied with medium co2, short lingering bitterness. Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced. I could drink a few of these without getting palette burnout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (3297) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Flaske fra Kihoskh, delt med Ovesen på tappekveld: klar dyp gylden med fint skum. Tropical fruits galore, en fest for nesegrevet og munnen, og drøvelen protesterer heller ikke - dette er elegante saker som glir uanfektet over drøvelen.

Great double IPA - citrus and exotic fruit from the hops with a grapefruit bitterness against a medium bodied bready malt. Lots of punch flavour. A little sweet and a lot bitter.
