Widmer Bros O'Reilly IPA

Reviewed from notes from the Spring. Standard pint/12oz

A: Clear amber color with a light white head. Head dissipates and then laces the glass. 3.5/5

S: Lot of grassy hops, little bit of citrus. 4/5

T: Surprising malt character with a fair amount of citrus and a little zest. Not bad. 3.75/5

MF: Slightly creamy medium bodied IPA with moderate carbonation. Good. 4.25/5

This is a nice little IPA and something I'd gladly go back to. 4/5

On tap in a pint glass at Whole Foods Lane Ave on 4/10/13

Stained wood light brown and honey. Thin head and not much retention. There is a little lace.

The aroma is sticky pine, grapefruit, rye and sugar cookie. It smells good, if too sugary. The taste is loaded with hops, a slew of bitter citrus and pine. Bready, toasty middle. The problem is massive bitterness on the finish which drowns out the finer aspects of the rye. The bitterness trumps even the sugars. Medium-full body will full carbonation. Sticky hop resin finish.

Overall impression: Not a good rye and not a good IPA. It is, however, a good beer to pass by.

A- Slightly hazy light amber. One finger of white, rocky head. Head retention is good, as is the lacing.

S- Spicy grain, light caramel, spicy/piney hop notes.

T- light grains up front. There are touches of butterscotch mid-palate. The finish is long and filled with spice and astringent bitterness.

M- Light bodied, dry, mildly astringent. Moderate amounts of prickly carbonation.

O- It's a rye IPA. It's aggressive and spicy.
