What took so long for me to get at this?
Pours a hazed amber with a good, though light, tangerine tone. Up props a thick, tight, and proteinaceous head that is long-lasting, leaving some lace behind.
Shoots high and light with pine scents, giving way melon accents and a malty smell like beautifully sweet buttermilk biscuits. Flavor follows suit with great balance as light caramel and fully biscuity malt base pairs the moderately piney hops and floral complexity. Comes through with lemony flavors and near-melanoidin mouth-filling maltiness. I could drink this all night, a soft and lightly carbonated delight of balance, nuance, and integration on the tongue - who knew an American IPA is possible of things besides aggression?
Quite a meal in the malt department despite its light color. Possesses the same aromatic maltiness found in their old ale and barleywine as well as an even-hand with the hops. This beer confirms Great Divide's understanding of balance in the hop-heavy market of American styled beers. That said, in its freshest form the lupulin slam can be formidable.
