12 oz single from Roth’s Vista Market ,Salem. $1.35
typical burnt orange body with a nice,thick and frothy eggshell white head.
not liking the aroma..this is the type of IPA aroma that puts me off pungent green onion..though it gets Ok after the first few deep sniffs.
Taste ..bland really..sweet malty..grassy hop...slightly fruity..meh.
Ok i suppose on the palate..nothing to write home about.
Another dissapointment from the Rotator series..im not sure am i missing something? OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - NOV 3, 2011
This was a damn good beer. Perfect looking when poured. Amber with tons of carbonation and a 1 inch tan head. Very hoppy aroma and taste. FROTHINGSLOSH (8064) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was tangy caramel, pine and vague fruits. The flavor was bitter with moderately strong perfumey and floral hops, light pine, vague fruity hops and caramel. Medium finish and body. Ok. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Draught at The Village Draught house. Pours sharp clean gold with one finger of sticky white head. Nose is light and citrusy with sweet notes and hops reminiscent of centennial and cascades. Flavor is citrusy and sweet with a light grassy character and light zesty bitterness. Light bodied and dry with a light bitterness. Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 31, 2011
sweetish flavor, moderate bitterness. nice copper/amber colored body mot much lacing. not a bad brew but a little bit pedestrian, really doesn’t stand out or give you anything to remember it by, even if there’s nothing wrong with it.

Bottle. Pours a rich dark gold with a high, large-grained, white head. Nose is citrus, gooseberry, and herbs. Stone fruit, toast, citrus, and more herbs -- rosemary -- on the tongue, with a crisp, lively feel to it. Finishes clean. Absolutely delicious. Tabednar (139) - - OCT 28, 2011

Light but somehow suprisingly flavorful. Makes me want to try the others in the series! heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Deep copper hued brew with a dense but light khaki head. Nose of grapefruit and caramel. There is also fresh cut wood. The taste is brown sugar coated grapefruit with some pine on the back end. There is also a little hint of smoke, especially in the finish. This is a pretty nice sticky slightly sweet IPA. I like it. Ratman197 (15200) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, orange zest and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit, light pine and light orange zest with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish. poisoneddwarf (2620) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium light-beige head with decent retention; leaves cobwebby lacework. Aroma is peachy, citrus powder drink, honeysuckle. Taste is bitter with sweet edges. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is sticky. Not bad. 3.7 seems to be my number lately!
