4.43/5  rDev +22%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Little white head. Slightly hazy golden amber. Excellent lacing.

Bright/fresh aroma. Tons of juicy grapefruit.

Fantastic fresh ipa. Excellent cracker/bready malt flavors that give way to big fresh hop flavor.
Mostly citrus again. Wonderful lingering bitterness. Bread like after taste as well

Pin point carbonation and medium body.

This is an excellent IPA

Serving type: on-tap

3.53/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color, with a modest white head, which soon collapses to scattered patches of foam. Thin lacing coats the glass walls.

Aroma: Caramel notes are accompanied by pine hops.

Taste: Opens with caramel malt and aggressive pine hops. AS the taste progresses, the caramel malt shines through a bit, offering some balance to the fairly intense hops. Finishes with a wave of pine tar hops and a little sweet malt.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A decent example of the style, I wonder why Widmer Brothers stopped brewing it?

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: bottle
