Draft pour into a shaker pint glass at Whole Foods in Tustin.
A: Clear, burnished golden color with one finger of white head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: This beer smells most strongly of honey, accented by herbal hop notes most similar to sage. There is some toast detectable amidst the more volatile flavors, but nothing here leaves much of a favorable impression.
T: Begins off-dry, with faint pine and floral hop flavors that are soon edged out as the middle arrives with acidic and soapy flavors. Bright, estery stone fruit also emerges in the middle but doesn't define the moderate bitterness present in the finish. Fortunately the soapy flavor diminishes as the palate becomes acclimated to the qualities of this beer.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, wet and smooth on the palate, with light carbonation.
D: A lack of compelling qualities makes this beer fail to distinguish itself, after drinking it on two different occasions. While the most questionable qualities fade over the course of a glass, nothing but the the thick sheet of foam clinging to the glass is very much worth remembering. Here is a beer that could not live up to the glowing reputation attributed to it on this website and by its association to Great Divide.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Pours a dark copper color, with minimal head that quickly leaves behind a nice lacing on my glass.
Smells of hops and a bready malt. I'm familiar with the brewery and their other IPAs, and the hop-malt balance is what I've come to expect and enjoy from them.
It tastes of piney, citrusy hops with a bready and caramel malt flavor following. The taste is very well balanced between hops and malts, with nothing being extremely overpowering.
It's moderately carbonated, and also thicker than I was expecting from a non-double IPA. Still, goes down quite smoothly.
Overall, another solid offering from the Great Divide. I was expecting a lot, and not let down.
