From a 12oz bottle

Unusual IPA in that the aroma is light and about as malty as it is hoppy, yet the flavor is quite hop dominated. Lingering bitter and hoppy aftertaste.

A. Slightly aggressive poor 1 ¼ inch white head that dissipated to a ½ inch throughout the entire glass. I love the suds of this beer. Little to no carbonation after it is poured, it must be up at the top of the glass with its friends.
S. Hops, citrus, lemon, little caramel.
T. Big flavor very hoppy for only 5% ABV. Taste is not as complex as it smells. Taste very little alcohol.
M. Dry like most IPA’s but not to the point of cottonmouth.
O. Finished with the glass laced with foam and the bottom of the glass still had form. Have I mentioned that I love the suds? This IPA is pretty good. I would recommend to beginner IPA drinkers. Average buzz for 5% ABV.

Pours hazy gold color with sediment floating around and a thick 2 finger foam white head that was full of bubbles of all sizes, fading slowly, leaving good foamy lacing and rings as it went down. Smells of cereal, piney hops, grapefruit, grains, herbs, and earthy notes like very dry hay or wheat. The initial hop whiff was like a flash as the malt then pretty much took over; timid nose for an IPA from Great Divide.

Taste follows suit and like the nose consists of cereal, piney hops, cracker, grapefruit, lemon zest, roasted grains, very light spices, a mild caramel sweetness and earthy notes like very dry hay or wheat. The hops come out more in the flavor, as does the bitterness, but this is much maltier than I expected and seems more like a malty English IPA than an American West Coast IPA.

Mouthfeel is thick and on the chewy side with light carbonation, an average to slightly smooth feel and a good amount of bitterness that trails off on the clean side.

Not nearly as good as Titan IPA, Hercules DIPA or even the fantastic Fresh Hop Pale Ale, but it’s a decent average IPA. This was bottled on 2/17/14 so I need to try this fresh in hopes that it has more hop zing and is better overall.

The 4th beer of tonight's great divide sampler night. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some hops. Taste is well balanced, some pine, a mild bitterness, very drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
