COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap @McClouds in Bremerton WA good hoppy beer! Has a good smooth finish! At this point I don't know the abv, but tastes like you could have more than 1 or 2 and be ok to function! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love the softness of the mouthfeel on the finish. This must be coming from the wheat. Now I understand the difference between a west-coast IPA and a Northwest IPA. Well done.

This is probably one of the best IPAs to come out of Widmer since Hop Jack. This beer has nice grassy and citrus flavors on both the nose and tongue. Pours a clear pale gold color with a white head

12 FL. OZ (6 pack $8.99) I’m a big fan of widmer brothers beers, so far I’ve liked everything I’ve tried from them. This is a seasonal and just hit the shelves at my local store. This is a very good smelling beer. Its a very good beer and its even a decent 7%. I like this beer and I’d rate it about the same as Widmers Alchemy Ale but with an added % boost.

tania_nexust (72) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
From bottle. A very inviting resiny, herbal aroma with some sweetness and alcohol coming through. Quintessential North American style IPA - great balance of sticky malt with citrus and resin hop notes. Very drinkable and moreish.

Nice clean amber color. Strong floral aroma, medium bitterness but smooth finish. Nice new ipa to widmer collection.

Cybercat (3256) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Comes out of the growler a slightly hazy and appetizing amber with a thick pale cream-buff head. Strong, hoppy aroma is mainly woody with notes of sour orange and malt. Bold flavor comes on like Gangbusters,hoppy and greenwood with an undertone of sour citrus and a malty hint. Texture is a little on the thin side, but fairly fizzy. A true upheaval!

vandc01 (55) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2014
Poured from WOB in Ft. Myers Florida Golden color with a nice eggshell frothy head. Nice tropical aroma. Very smooth taste with a great after taste. Very tasty beer. Would have again

matty (187) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a light orange color with an off white head that settles to a film. Aroma is citrus with some malt in the background. Flavor is a nice balance between the malt and hops although the hops win in the end. Finish is sweet and citrusy at the same time. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour at world of beers in Evanston. Orange and clear with white head. Great Gumball and fruit smell. Candy west coast IPA style - wonderful. Slight bitter and hops with perfect citrus taste
