2.21/5 rDev -35.6%
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.

3.36/5 rDev -2%
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....

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.

Picked this up since I always like trying anything great divide puts out. Straight from the bottle review.
A - Probably a nice amber brown color maybe lighter due to its light ABV. Carbonation was good I got some great retaliation in the bottle.
S - Very herbal which is nice but I was kind of hoping for more biscuit malts or even a more citrus tone of IPA.
T - Very herbal not so much medicinal but a very full bodied hop bite. In fact as far as session ales go this is the most hop bite I ever experienced and it was kind of offputting and unbalanced. Decent though.
M - Like a standard IPA it drank with a light medium body.
Overall it was interesting to get such an intense hop bitterness from a "session IPA" but I see no point in trying again since I never really found one I would buy again. Worth trying if you love pine needles.

3.65/5 rDev +6.4%
Pours with a reddish amber hue, though not that red. A sizable head forms on the pour which is bright white and fairly dense. The body has brilliant clarity to showcase gentle carbonation.
The aroma was thin and weak and not what I was expecting especially after reading the label, but I did detect subtle citrus and, well, earthy hops.
The taste was good but lean and washed out. I could taste some citrus flavor, and there was plenty of caramel malts.
I didn't like the feel on the palate, very rough and course.
I'm not a big fan of these watered down IPA's This one was pretty good but I found that by the time you hit bottom it's flat watery and a shell of it's former self.

bottled on: 12/18/13
Clear, dark golden with a thick, foamy off white head and clinging lacing.
Floral, spicy hops, light citrus notes. Light biscuit backing.
Medium body, foamy carbonation.
A decent "session" IPA, a bit subdued at times, but an enjoyable flavor profile overall.
