Widmer Brothers Rotator IPA series, one of the nations best.

PORTLAND, OR – Widmer Brothers Brewing introduces, O’Ryely IPA. The India Pale Ale is the third release in the brewery’s Rotator IPA Series, which features a new, limited-run IPA every few months. Handcrafted by the Widmer Brothers’ brewing team, O’Ryely IPA is available in limited quantities on draught and in six and twelve-packs at select retailers nationwide.

“O’Ryely IPA is a great beer, and we’re thrilled to introduce it through our Rotator IPA Series,” said Ben Dobler, a Widmer Brothers’ brewer. “Brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops and rye, this beer sports a big flavor that’s complemented by a hint of malty sweetness. It’s the perfect beer for the season, and we’re excited to share it with fellow IPA fans.”

About the Rotator IPA Series

Our brewers’ recipe book is full of IPA recipes. Rather than just pick one, we wanted to share as many of these unique brews as we could with beer lovers everywhere. So we created the Rotator IPA Series, an ever-changing offering of different IPAs. The series was created to showcase our brewers’ penchant for experimentation and exhibit their freedom for innovation within the broad IPA style. O’Ryely IPA is the third beer in our Rotator IPA Series, and was preceded by X-114 IPA and Falconer’s IPA. The Rotator IPA Series beers are only available while supplies last.

From Beeradvocate.commactrail graded this beer an A and described as a rich, spicy ale with a big dose of hops.

Another great rendition of hoppy but accessible beers by Widmer. The rye provides a nice scratchy flavor along with warm malt. It seems like so much better than the harsh examples often encountered. Reminds me of Hop Rod Rye with the decent balance of rich malt and hops, but way less alcoholic. Bitterness in the aftertaste, but it fades pleasantly revealing a touch of burnt caramel.

Nice spicy nose is another good feature. Clear orange amber in the pint glass at South Park Abbey.
