Great DIvide's entry into the "session IPA" sweepstakes proves to be a winner! Pours a semi-cloudy amber, with a nice head of white suds. Gorgeous, detailed lacing.

Nose is crisp citrus hops. A great beginning!

Taste is a wonderful blend of thick and chewy tropical and citrus hops. I get orange, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit in the mix. Absolutely a treat and one I'll be looking for again.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Bottled on December 18th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: An earthy and grassy hoppy aroma with good hints of grass, pine, and caramel malt. Earthy, floral, and herbal hops with upfront hints of wet grass and spicy pine resin. Citrus hop presence with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and pineapple. Bready malt backing with hints of caramel, biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. A solid earthy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, an earthy and crisp hoppy taste with good notes of grass, pine, and caramel malt. Upfront taste of earthy hops with floral notes. Notes of damp grass and pine resin spice. Citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, and tangerine. Backing presence of pale malt with notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, grains, yeast, and cracker. A pretty solid earthy IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and somewhat oily feel. Finishes dry and smooth.

Overall: A solid East Coast style take on an IPA. Very grassy with a solid malt backing.

Lovely golden amber color with a fine-grained white head in the Ommegang chalice. Light aroma of flowers and warm biscuits. Rich mouthful of creamy carbonation.

Flavor is spicy with a cedar edge. Some honeydew melon and a tiny hint of apple pie spice. Hops are not so bitter but provide an interesting blend of tangy wood and light resin with a touch of sweet gardenia in the nose. Think of a Belgian IPA with a flowery character and less of the yeasty bitterness. Or a Pilsner with a hint of green chiles.

I guess this is a good example of how expectations influence review. If you're expecting a take-no-prisoners IPA, this isn't it. But it's a perfectly drinkable lighter style of hoppy brew that doesn't fit into the categories perfectly. Great Divide keeps coming up with beers you want a six-pack of. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego.
