3.95/5 rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance- pours a deep copper color with about two fingers of head. Retains only a small covering of head, but covers the top of the beer. Slightly hazy with no sedimentation.
Smell- good heavy hops as would be expected. No smell of alcohol or malts, smells very clean and bitter.
Taste- I haven't had an IPA in a long time and love any pale ale, so I may be biased right now, but this tastes excellent. Very sharp bitter hops, clean taste, but aftertaste lasts a little too long, had to bring it down to 4 from my initial 4.5.
Mouthfeel- the sharpness of the hops comes through in the mouthfeel of this beer.
Drinkability- In terms of session beer... no way. But a single beer after work, definitely yes.
I got this for 1 cent at my local Fry's/Kroger, and I would buy it for normal price in the future. A worthy IPA.

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.
