Clear yellowish orange with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a long time. Leaves nice sticky lacing.
Hit first with some sweet malts, followed by a mellow citrusy hop aroma. Pretty subdued, not too complex, but nice.
A little malt forward, but pretty balanced between the same sweet malts I picked up in the aroma, followed by some basic citrusy hops. I'm not really getting much of the piney hops they describe, but they are in there in the background. Kind of basic, but good.
Moderate body and modrate carbonation. Basically spot on with what I expect from the style as well. Some nice creaminess too it too. Refreshing, yet has some substance. Very nice.
My hopes were pretty high given the super high marks for this one, and it's definitely pretty good, it just didn't really stand out to me all that much. Maybe it's a bit old. I'd recommend it though, for just a good, basic IPA that isn't trying anything too crazy.

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.

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.
