Decent looking IPA, darker than average with a thin fading head.
Smells decidedly bitter, almost medicinal. Maybe some herbal nature to the hops.
This is one bitter beer, tons of general hoppiness and hop bitterness that gives almost a metallic pull on the palate. Unfortunately there's not a lot of specific hop character or flavors coming through for me. Very bitter but no fruit/spice/pine/mint/tobacco or any other gustatory notes to impress me here. I've had this IPA several times so I know it's not just this bottle lacking.
Mouthfeel is above average, good carbonation to balance out that hop bomb bitterness
Overall not my favorite. Great divide has better beers, even better IPAs (see fresh hop). If you're looking for a bitter bomb, this'll do, but if you want more complexity look elsewhere.

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!
