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.

Had a growler of this yesterday. Aroma was OK. The taste was pretty good- definitely on the piney/resinous side in terms of flavor, but had a lingering bitterness I didn't think much of. It's a solid beer, but not my favorite from them.

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.
