3.51/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pretty much epitomizing amber, this beer is a totally clear pale-medium orange with a bright gold flare at the edges. The head, just off-white, is creamy and resides firmly at half a finger's height. Retention is good, and the foam that caps the beer for the remainder of the session drops creamy spotting with some thin webbing at parts.
The smell is mostly hops but, to a point, a little nondescript and leaning somewhat light. It's C-hops all the way with a somewhat dry, pithy note and some raw green stem, balanced by caramel and breads.
The taste brings the greenery and pith with a hit of pine resin in the middle, finishing with a bit of a cardboard flavor at the end. At first, the malts give a note of honey-drizzled biscuits, but it doesn't take much time for that note to fall off.
It's crisp in a medium body that thins out a touch at the end, though it has a soft creaminess all the way through. It goes a hint metallic on the palate as well. Otherwise, the soft and constant crisp and smooth feels balance well.

Lasso pours a warm golden color with just a little bit of copper in it. Head is rocky and white, head retention is great.

Aroma is strongly of hops with a light malt backbone. Hops are piney, resiny, and a little fruity. Everything plays very well together

Beer is a little sweet to start with a hoppy finish. Not too bitter and very refreshing. Resiny hops at the finish leave you wanting another sip.

Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation.

One of the many things that Great Divide seems to constantly nail is giving their IPAs a malt backbone that complements the hops. This beer is no exception. A great session IPA, just hoppy enough to get you hooked without burning you out by being overboard.

2.21/5  rDev -35.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a clear, golden color with a

Smells of grass and floral notes.

Tastes of the floral hops with a light malt touch. Hops lead off with floral and grass notes along with a touch of lemon. Moderately bitter before a small wave of malt comes through. Malts add some grainy sweetness with a bit of cracker. Finishes with an earthy bitterness that lingers.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid IPA, but it doesn't feel robust enough for me.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear light gold/yellow with one finger of sudsy off white head, a few half circle tracings of lacing
S - Crackery malt, dank grassy hops, a little skunky, very dimished kind of aroma though.
T - Super gross and skunky, this has almost an adjunct taste to it, very dry dark kind of dirty hop taste, crackery and bread malt. Just bad.
M - Dry and bitter, chewy.
O - This is a serious let down, this is barely an IPA, more of a bad Pale if you ask me, horrid skunky aroma and flavor to it, just disappointing. Session IPA? get lost....

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale gold with sparkling clarity, white head, and significant lacing. Nose starts with earthy pine hops followed by some resinous notes. The taste does not feature the hoppy punch that the nose promises. Mild pine paired with light malt notes and some grapefruit. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, not as good as Titan, more of a session IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
