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.

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.

Nice Amber hue with off white creamy head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and malt. Taste piney up front and finishes off with a mild citrus sweetness, with a mild dry bitterness. Just right, not overwhelming. I definitely be drinking more of these.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

look-Pours a gorgeous amber with a nice, sticky, white head that retains nicely, a steady stream of bubbles reinforce the nice head.
Smell-Pine, hop funk, green peppercorns, light fruit
Taste-Pine and dank, hop funk in the beginning but the finish is filled with light fruit like apples, pears, and a hint of tangerine.
Feel-crisp,quite carbonated,finishes moist but not overly juicy.
overall-very impressive IPA, a nice take on the non-fruity IPA.

The best quality is its smoothness and drinkability. Dry, with average hoppiness and prominent earthy overtones. Not much complexity.
