Widmer Brothers Rotator X-114 IPA Series poured a bright white head over a pale honey body. The nose had a distinct, sweet cantaloupe and spice aroma to it.
Widmer Brothers Rotator X-114 IPA opened with a carbonate, sweet orange citrus start backed by a sweet, caramel malt center. The hop profile shifted to more traditional grapefruit and pine, with a bit of peppery spice, and the IPA ended on a dry, spiced citrus note.
Widmer Brothers Rotator X-114 IPA is a unique experience, with the 114 (Citra) adding a distinctly sweet citrus flavor and aroma to the classic NW IPA experience. I look forward to trying their three forthcoming additions to the Rotator IPA line.
