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.

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.
