3.66/5 rDev +7%
12 ounce bottle
Pours typical almond amber, under a light khaki head. leaves moderate fine lace.
Hops on the nose, grainy and some pine.
Moderate hop punch, again with notes of pine and resin
Medium bodied and carbonation on point.
Respectable, but not outstanding IPA

The Lasso IPA is a decent offering from Great Divide. The beer pours a clear golden color with nice white head that is leaving a lace. The scent carries some bitter fresh hops. The taste leans toward bitter but there is some sweeter malt to help balance the beer. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall a solid beer and would drink it again if given the chance.

Great Divide has also jumped on the "Session" IPA trend, and they're betting that Lasso IPA is the ticket. Coming from a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:
A half-inch of head doesn't retain much of itself and leaves a few bits of lace around the glass. Below is the brew itself, being a lighter copper color. The aroma is light in intesity for an IPA, session or not. There are slight notes of mango, tangerine...is that onion too? So far, I'm not wild about it.
The beer itself has an overall modest flavor. There's some pine, bitter grapefruit, onion, so overall of somewhat hoppy beer that isn't very intense, and ending with a bitter and raw aftertaste. It has a medium sized body with respectable carbonation.
Not a bad beer, though coming from the same brewery which has produced the likes of Titan IPA, Hercules DIPA, and Fresh Hop Pale Ale, I'd rather water down either of those beers than come back to Lasso.

Pours a light fizzy 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice soapy lacing, crystal clear apricot orange honey colored.
Nose nice hops, some citrus and fruity hops, hint of a citrus rind, mild grassy floral hop note, with a bit of a fruity bubblegum, nice hops but a bit on the lighter side, with a little malty base, bit of candied citrus, hint tangerine.
Taste brings more hops and fair bitterness, little fruity bubblegum again, generic fruity fruit, little citrus and rind, mild pith, mild resin, little spicy floral hops too. Mild fluffy malt base, little sweetness to balance. Fair bitterness that continues to increase and get fairly spicy and a little earthy even, bit chewy like, with more rind increasing towards the finish. Finish dries and get very bitter, little salty bitter spicy hop, earthy, chewy, little resin and citrus and fruit lingering, little sticky but mostly dry.
Mouth is med bod but a bit light, nice fluffy carb,
Overall pretty nice, the aroma is a bit light but nice hop profile, nice hop flavor profile too with a nice increasing hop bitterness which is good cause it started a bit too light for an IPA to start, little malt but a decent balance, but hops really take the show.
