4.1/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle (wish I could get a bomber) into a pint glass a nice deep tawny-red amber, with the slightest haze and a somewhat reluctant head - a thin wafer with Styrofoam coloring and equallly sized bubbles receded after a few moments, leaving a millimeter ice-white layer and wispy lacing down the glass. You have to really get close to the glass to be able to see any carbonation.

The nose is a nostril-scorching, sinus-clearing acidic, citrusy, grassy ker-pow of hops, a confident, smooth, burly aroma. Malts are present, a slightly tart or sour quality layered in with heavy caramel, but the bursting hops are dominant and flavorful. They get my mouth watering.

Mmmm - the flavor is hoppy, and the lupulins are burly in flavor, just as they are in scent. There's a definite, ahem, cannabis flavor here, with slight orange peel tones, and it's layered nicely in with a rich, slightly roasty malt profile. Aftertaste is bitter, and slightly 'dirty' - earthy, but bitter!

The carbonation is mild, allowing the smooth malts and oily hops to seep around your tongue - I'm happily reminded of GD's own Hercules DIPA, which is the most viscous, oily brew I've ever swallowed, but this has a far more drinkable slickness.

Final thoughts: Hmmm... Great Divide is great.

3.78/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on 4/18/14.

A- Hazy orange with reddish accents. Poured with a thin 1/4 finger head that moved to a quick lace within a minute.

S- Pale malts, biscuit, some faint citrus and grass.

T - Very subdued, more like an English IPA. Mango, orange, dirt and grass on the finish, with some spice lurking in the background.

M - Carbonation is medium low, a touch watery, but very smooth refreshing.

O - Not sure if being three months old muted the hops some. Either way, this is a highly drinkable IPA that goes down fast. Will seek it out again if I find it closer to the bottle on date.
