look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz : tulip
bottled on 03/11/13

Pours a clear, coppery orange with a thick, craggy, white head that clings to the glass.

Fruity, citric hops, with a smooth caramel malt backing.

Medium body, mild foamy carbonation.

A well done APA. Fresh, cruity, citric hop profile well balanced with lightly sweet caramel, malts.

Mouthfeel: LIght, not too watery, resiny oily hop feeling, nice carbonation.

3.55/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pale amber, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a mix of citrus and hops bitterness in the aroma. There is some herbs, and spicy aromas, but the citrus and hops dominate.

Taste: A nice mix of hops, citrus, malt, and spicy flavors, that make for an interesting and complex drink. I like the balance of the hops, malt, and citrus flavors. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long, and not too strong.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is a nice Pale Ale. So far my favorite beer from Widmer Brothers.
