look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Served cold and poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A vigorous pour produces 1.5 fingers of head that fights a long time to stay atop the beer, great holding power. A clear (almost looks filtered) orange color. Lacing down the glass is thick.
Smell: Strong citrus hop aromas, lots of grapefruit. A little malt detectable in the background, not too much though. Hop aromas are sweet and powerful.
Taste: The hops do not disappoint. I don't know the hop bill but I would suspect some American c-hops are at play here. A soft bready aftertaste from the malt, very nice balance for my liking.
Mouthfeel: More carbonated than average. A nice thickness in the mouthfeel but I wish it had left a thicker hoppy coating in my mouth, disappears quickly.
Overall: This is a delicious beer. Try as I might, I have trouble finding very many faults. Clearly deserves a place in the upper echelon of American IPAs.

4.34/5 rDev +6.1%

A- poured to a pint glass. Dark orange, even brownish hue. 1 finger head, leaving a nice lace. Hazy in clarity, not necessarily appealing so I docked it a bit for that
S- at first nose I got cotton candy. Draw two brought out a good balance of malt and hops. Pine, woodsy, apple, subdued but solid.
T- lots of tasty, I mean friggin tasty caramel up front, stays with it through the palate. The hops is present, but the focus is elsewhere. The malt base is smooth. Grassy at times. This beer mellows to a nice warm smooth finish. It makes a strong and focused, yet singular statement
M- medium to aggressive hops. Surprisingly it fits this beer. The mouthfeel smartly takes the focus off the beer taste then allows your mind to wander back. Ends silky on the tongue but not milky. Well done
O- this beer is very focused. If your palate digs the groove, then it hits a homerun. If not there is not enough complexity to cover the masses. In my case, it sits well with me. Ergo, home run in my opinion!

solid IPA from Great Divide. this is one of my favorites from Great Divide. I have to ask where to get it here in San Francisco. i have to write more about this beer, but i will write more about my experience at the GD taproom. Located in downtown Denver, the tap room is a little bit of a step up from other taprooms i visited while in Denver. The neighborhood looks a little seedy, but the place serves some great beer. i would recommend visiting wholeheartedly. as with any great beer place, it was crowded around the 5pm hour. pints could be bought for $6. i chose to buy the samplers at 3 for $3. i could easily have had a pint of each beer i tasted.
Serving type: on-tap
