From a 355 ml bottle (dated April 29, 2013) into a globe glass.
A-A slightly aggressive pour produces almost no head, just a thin collar of patchy, white foam. The beer is deep copper in color, clear, and pretty still.
S-There are some nice hop notes here! I smell orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and a bit of lemon and pine. There is just a hint of biting chalkiness and soapiness, which is offset by the mild caramel sweetness from the malts.
T-The taste lacks some of the complexity and fruit from the smell. I detect more pine and caramel maltiness here. There is still a decent wave of citrus and pineapple, but the overall impression is more bitter and sharp. A nice example of this style.
M-The beer starts out with a mildly-assertive, lightly-prickly carbonation. There is some hint of hoppy oiliness, but this beer is not terribly dank or stick feeling.
O-After umpteen different times that I have ordered and enjoyed this beer while out and about, I was pleased to finally review it at home. The smell, in particular, is a high point with loads of delicious, hop-forward flavors and just the right of amount of tan, caramel malts to balance things. The beer loses points for looks, which were pretty meh, but I will happily finish the six-pack I purchased.

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.
