The Spiced IPA from Portland, Oregon’s Widmer Brothers Brewing is the first in their Rotator IPA Series that I’ve tried. It’s a golden amber in the glass, with low carbonation and a nice foamy head that sticks around for awhile. The nose is hoppy and floral, and flavor has lemon and spices. This is a hop heavy beer, but it’s more spicy than bitter. It’s not terribly spicy either though. I mentioned earlier that this is a fairly flat beer, carbonation-wise (which is fine for a good strong ale) but I find the flavor to be a bit flat as well.
I give it a 2.6 out of 5.
