4.5/5  rDev +10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Good old 22oz bottle with a straight forward label. I can tell as I’m pouring that the rapidly forming head will be sticky and resilent, it didn’t make a liar our of me. The head is a white dimpled monster that leaves nice, intricate webs of lacing down the glass. The body of the beer is a ruby tinted copper with a slight haze, sparse little chunks of matter here and there and almost no visible carbonation. The nose is vibrant and dominated by citrusy hop aromas, light hints of pine and blending with the sweet malt backing creates a lovely apricot aroma. Flavor-wise this IPA is a bit sweeter and less dry than many of the style. Sweet and sticky with caramel up front, picking up a subtle bubble-gum/cotton candy sweetness flavor as well. The bitterness is moderate (a bit less than preferable), the hop flavors are lovely. The tart fruitiness of the hops both create their own and meld with the flavors of the malt to create diverse flavors of honey drizzled watermelon, honey-dew, apricot, and grape-fruit tossed with a sparse sprinkling of pine needles. Mouthfeel is near-still and medium bodied, very nice. This is a very “balanced” IPA. Looking forward to having it again.

4.45/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

3.9/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on Date of 12/09/13

Appearance - Pours a crystal clear rusty orange color with a half finger, off-white head. Fair retention, leaving behind a broken layer of suds on the surface. Fair lacing around the glass with good stick.

Smell - Toasted bread, with lesser notes of citrus and floral hoppiness.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mellow, balanced flavors that hit on toasted bread, light caramel with soft, floral hop character. Balanced finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Fair creaminess. Smooth, easy finish.

Overall - Not the freshest example; seems light on the hoppy side, but I'm chalking that up to 5 months of age on this bottle. Would love to try this fresh. Delicious, regardless.

look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle ~3 months old. Color is a straight amber. Very little head.

On the nose I pick up the malt, floral, and citrus. Malt seems to be stronger than most IPAs.

Nice malt backbone on the front. Finishes like a ipa. Piney and citrusy. Not a lot of tropical fruit like on some of the west coast styles.
