I have been slightly disappointed with most Widmer products with the exception of Brrr! and Drifter. I'm a big IPA fan and look forward to trying anything new (especially from West Coast breweries).
This was excellent! For starters it has an outstanding citrus nose that immediately hooks you in. The smell is followed by the wonderful flavors of it's bold combination of hops. It's very easy to drink and at 6% it won't knock you out like some of the 7%-9% other IPAs. I found it on sale for $7.99/six pack which is an outstanding buy compared to similar products for $9/$11.
Note --- Widmer beers need to be served in a glass. You do not get the full experience of the beer within the bottle. The tiny head on the bottles don't seem to allow enough oxygen in to release the smell and flavor.
Great job Widmer! Keep them coming!
