This is the second Great Divide beer I've tried; first being Hercules Double IPA. To be honest, I love IPAs, but I like this beer a good deal more... especially since I paid $13 for this in a 6 pack and I paid $16 for a 4 pack of Hercules... Not bad for an 8.7% ABV brew. Anyways, I poured this into a pint glass and noticed a cola like color with a deep red tint when held up to the light. The pour left a nice tan head that left an even lace around the glass. Malts, chocolate, caramel, and hops are evident in the aroma. The hop aroma is heavier than the hop taste, which was a surprise. Caramel malts with a hint of chocolate and hops are the most prominent flavors... although there seems to be a great deal of hops in this beer, it doesn't have the dry, bitter after taste of an IPA. This is a pretty thick beer filled with a lot of flavor. Not a good session beer, but a great desert beer(s). I think this is an incredible beer and I will absolutely buy it again very soon. I recommend buying this if you get the chance... I mean it blows me away that someone rated this a D+... maybe it was the first time they ever drank a beer or maybe they are huge fans of keystone light.
