look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Golden light-brown, poured into a Widmer 16oz. glass with two finger head that dissipates slowly. Significant lacing. Note: The last glass poured from the growler 24 hours later still had significant head -- nice retention.

S: Widmer got this so right. The combination of Citra hops and grapefruit peel works a special magic. Big grapefruit nose. Clean, fresh-sliced aroma, some pine, other citrus.

T: Classic APA boldness. A slap of hop flavor from the start that stays as a backbone. Very strong, juicy grapefruit rind bitterness. Malt is present, maybe caramelly, but is overcome by satisfying resinous hoppy flavor.

M: Moderate oily hop feel. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol.

I could drink this one all summer. It's one I hope Widmer doesn't leave behind, but instead gives a recurring role.

Serving type: growler

This tied for my favorite beer at GABF last night. I can't comment much on appearance based on the sampler cup, but the combination of Citra hops and grapefruit peel was amazing. The aroma was unmistakably Citra, but there was a nice amount of grapefruit in the flavor. I would have never thought of using them together but it worked perfectly. Definitely not a standard IPA but excellent nonetheless.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into my slim goblet... Nice white head... decent lacing... The brew is clear golden.

Nose shows bunches of citrus and just hints of pale malt.

Good bitterness.... very balanced and drinkable IPA... tons of citrus notes and still never too bitter... light pale malt just carries the hops forever.. very fresh and very approachable....

Body and carbonation are pretty much spot-on. Dry and nicely hopped... Digging it for sure... I hope Widmer makes this a new always available brew.

3.5/4/4.5/4.5/4.5

Serving type: bottle
