Bottle poured into pint glass

A... clear copper color with 1" off white head. Very nice, sticky lacing on the glass.

S...VERY floral. Lots of sweet citrus with a little bif of pine behind it. Smells delicious.

T...Wow. hoppy bitterness right up front. Nicely complex, lots of flavors going on here. There is a nice fruity taste and the bitterness gives it a clean finish. A little sweet for an IPA.

M...perfect carbonation. Very nice, lighter bodied feel to it. I could easily drink a couple too many of these on a Summer evening.

O...Surprisingly good. I have really liked some of Widmers rotator IPA's. Killer deal too $14/12 pack. This is a nice beer. A little sweeter than the Rotator Shaddock IPA. Pick some up.

A-Muddied burnt orange...

S-Terrific...toasted breads and warm biscuit like maltiness....hops are very interesting...not sure what is used but I'm getting fresh pine combined with a sweet tropical style fruitiness....mangos...papaya...pineapple..

T-I think the malt really makes this beer but what an interesting hop flavor...not sure I've had many I can compare it to. This has some bitterness but the flavor profile really impresses me more so.

M-Medium bodied...never would have guessed 7%..drinks more like a pale ale loaded with flavor.

O-I've had two bottles of this. The first one I thought this was off the charts good and was saving this second bottle to review. My first impression was a bit better but this is definitely a tasty beer I would rate as an upper tier IPA

Smell out of the bottle is lemony hops, with grass and pine.

Color is nice - a vibrant brownish-orange.

A little head forms on its own, even when poured gently.

Smell out of glass is of straight oranges, with a little sweet tinge. Pleasant...

First taste is hops, of course, with a touch of sweetness. Orange notes.

Second taste bring bitterness noted at roof of mouth.

Feel is smooth and frothy.

Lacing is persistent and holds even from the top of the glass as you drink it down.

Bitterness does not overpower in the aftertaste or as you drink into the beer.

Nice American IPA, for sure.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass. Taken from a Widmer Bros. variety pack.

Appearance: Pours a clear, amber-brown color. Has a large, frothy head that dissipates quickly and leaves some decent lacing.

Smell: Smells strongly of nice hoppy aromas. Citrus, grapefruit, and even a little bit of peach come out nicely in the aroma. Has a sweet, caramel malt smell as well.

Taste: Tastes moderately bitter (by IPA standards) with a strong caramel malt backbone. The hops have a crisp, citrus and grass flavor. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a nice carbonation.

Overall: I was very pleasantly surprised by this IPA. It's definitely better than your average variety pack IPA. I haven't always been impressed by Widmer Bros., but the beers I've had from them recently might make me give them a second look.
