A: clear; bronze in color; 1 finger light khaki head that receded to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: pine, earthy, floral, caramel;

T: earthy for a moment; caramel comes in quickly; mid-palate is a little sweet; as the flavor fades, the earthiness and caramel are balanced; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: very nice representation of the style;

Pristinely clear and amber in color with creamy off white head, brilliant lacing. Piney aroma hops paired with caramel scents, but this smell has more depth in the malt profile than the normal American IPA. The taste mirrors the smell with an initial bittering hop profile followed by a full bodied and robust caramel malt flavors. The taste stays strong on the palate with fruity bittering hops in the aftertaste. Poured correctly this one has lower carbonation than most, and balances nicely with the flavors in the beer. Overall this one is quite a good brew.

Great taste but not the IPA I was expecting. The malt was a bit overdone but I don't know what would have been left without it.

Normally I like IPA's with a dominant citrus profile instead of malts like this one but it really works. So smooth with the fruit and zest more in the nose than in the taste. Very nice. Someone's was right, more pale ale than IPA.

Copper in color. Some citrus but otherwise, the flavor profile is fairly bland. The finish is not terribly hoppy either.

Lite auburn pour and off white head. Oaky nose. Dry oaky Flavor and buttering hops up front. Wooden mouthfeel. Too woody.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Amber jade color, large carbonation bubbles, thin head leaving small lacing sticks whence consumed.
S: Predominantly malty.
M: Crisp then syrupy. Mouthfeel perhaps best attribute.
T: Definitely malt over hops on the palate. This however is not a bad thing. It is a fine brew to pickup at a Walmart where I've seen it to be one of the better craft brews in there selection. If it was between this and sweet water iPa for instance, I'd reach for the Titan.

At first i liked this IPA. But after Having an ohio IPA, i find this a little bland and boring. More like a pale ale than an IPA if you ask me. The best part is the crisp clean slightly over carbonated mouth feel. I feel the hops are too weak making the malts more prevalent. Overall i enjoyed this brew, but i would never take it over a rhinegeist or madtree IPA or any ohio IPA for that fact.

This was mediocre for me. Smooth, dank, piney, resinous, little carbonation, minimal lacing, no head.

Will not seek out or purchase again.

Piney and resinous start. Sweet rich maltiness with medium body. Herbacious hop character with a hint of woodiness on the finish. Fantastic flavor arch with lots of complexity and perfect harmony of flavors.

Wait, this got a 100 from the bros? Uh, ok. This was a totally drinkable but totally mediocre IPA. It was fine, but nothing to drop your pants about.

Poured from a bottle into a pint

A. A nice golden orange color quite opaque. 2 finger cream colored head that seems to have some nice retention. Very nice lacing.

S. Aroma is piney and sweets malts.

T. Nice banana or pear hop flavor with some pine and bitterness in the aftertaste. Very nice flavor on this IPA. Glad I picked it up.

M. Medium body. Light carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.

O. Very nice IPA. Great flavor. Looks nice. Would definitely but again.

My introduction to Great Divide. Here goes:

A: Mediocre. Nice orange-amber, but little carbonation and a small head that dissipates immediately. The beer is clear, however, and it leaves a lot of lacing.

S: Pretty subtle, but this may be because the beer was bottled over four months ago. Light pine, grapefruit and some caramel, the latter of these obviously from the malt. Obviously a WC IPA. However, the scents were relatively faint and subdued - I had to really stick my nose in the beer to smell it.

T: Good, but nothing special. Good mix of grapefruit, pine hops and caramel malt. Leaves a partially sweet caramel presence at the back of the palate; hops aren't that astringent.

F: Very good. Nice and sticky.

O: Solid beer, but there are better options.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice Amber color, half inch thick white head, with nice retention and lacing.
Smell: Aroma is flowery, and citrusy, with some light pine notes and just a light sweet malt tinge.
Taste: Piney up front, with a nice citrus flavor, and a good malt backbone.
Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, with a nice crisp dry finish.
Overall: I really like this beer, this one was pretty fresh, bottled three weeks ago, I'll definitely seek this one out again.
