3.58/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

It's a decent beer coming from a company that was bought out. Many of you wouldn't think Widmer Brothers Brewing Company make decent beer anymore.

I thought it was decent. It looked good, and it smelled okay. I thought the beer's taste was slightly lacking in the flavor profile that it should have. The hops were there, but it wasn't enough for me. I thought it was mild, even though the alcohol is potent! The taste also wasn't very complex and nuanced.

There's dry aftertaste for me, and that's probably caused by the strong ABV, and it's pretty good. It's typical of what you see in an IPA.

Overall, I would buy it again, but it's certainly not the best of this style. I think i will want to check out the other "rotator" IPAs to see what the fuss is all about. However, I can't go wrong with 7% ABV for this beer, can I?

S- Some pine and citrus. Hops and slightly warm and sugary.

T- Warm flavor with bitter, piney hops.

M- Buttery, smooth medium bodied beer. Fairly wet finish.

O- Excellent, piney IPA.
