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.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap @ Goat Hill Tavern. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Pungent grapefruit, pineapple juice, and orange peel on the nose. Kind of grassy and floral as well. A touch of caramel malt. Nice and dry on the palate. Very light caramel malts, tons of grapefruit and pine. Some pineapple, slight citric acidity, and orange oils. Not bad at all.

On draft, nice pour in a tall tulip glass. Short head, bright amber color. Grapefruit, grassy, caramel aroma. Hop bitterness is very apparent, not sticky like some IPAs. Finishes with a little chalkiness.

Clear gold pour some head. Aroma of mangoes vanilla pine hops. Tastes pine hops serious malt. Creamy dry finish. A smooth drinker with good aroma, but not so innovative I’d name it upheaval.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Pours a light orange.Bottle sediment haze. Fruit/floral aromas with toasty sweet malts. Some pine and wintergreen.Some soapyness in a good way.. Same in taste with strong dry toasty malts not sweet but a hint of sweet with some mellow piney bitter. Heavy in finish with grapefruit/pine bitter- fairly strong finish. Nice toasty dry malt ipa with minty hops. Smooth, full rich but medium body. Excellent.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small head and nominal lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, light fruit with grass. Taste of citrus, bit of pine, light fruit sweetness and grain. Moderate bitterness and finish that is quite clean. Medium body, crisp, smooth and nicely balanced. Nice beer for the style.

Bottle from sampler pack. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, light toast, biscuit malt, and light grassiness. Flavor is balanced dry malts and hop bitterness with the the grassy hop notes eventually taking over and some light citrus esters to round things out. Medium body and carbonation.

From bottle. Murky copper pour with just a little white head. Nice retention and lacing. Nose is citrus and grass. Smells like summer. Nice carbonation and near perfect balance. A good punch of grassy bitterness to bring it home. This one’s a keeper.
