Bottled on 1/9/14.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with really odd metallic and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very poor beer with a nice aroma, but oddly enough the taste is astringent, metallic, and makes this one very hard to drink.

Pours a finger and half of foamy head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is mild pine and honey; there's an off-smell too.
The taste has a dry pine bitterness throughout, a mild malt sweetness joins in the middle. A little watery in the flavor.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The smell isn't great and the flavor is okay.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper amber with a medium frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malts, some fruit and grassy hops.

The flavor is sweet bready caramel malts with a lot of grassy hop bitterness and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, an ok IPA. Don't care for the flavors - bready caramel malts with lots of grassy hops.

Bottled On: DEC-17-2013 Fresh!

Brilliantly clear orange with a small, soapy off-white head. Weird vegetal aroma upfront...peas, grass, some floral notes. Oily, peppery hop flavor with a snappy, bitter finish. Grass, earth, pine, pepper...sort of raw and weird, but at least not as vegetal. With a hop profile of Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade, something is very wrong here. Medium bodied, textured, and crisp. Not at all what I expected and I have to assume not what was intended. Maybe I'll give it another try in the future if they work things out.

Great Divide Lasso: I am a big Great Divide fan, and their Titan IPA is one of my top IPA's. But the Lasso falls short.

Nice bronze color topped with a hearty head that lasts and lases well. Not much punch to the aroma

The flavor is lean on hops and big on bitterness. This beer will go well with certain foods, but the raspy bitterness and lack of depth make it a poor selection for the beer you were looking to savor this evening.
