A very nice pungent citrus floral smell from the hops. Its like a sweet citrus fruit and its quite an amazing smell for a Pale Ale. Definitely not your typical aroma. The taste is very smooth, rich and creamy body with a cereal, bready malt sweetness. It then ends with the fruity citrus hops at the end with just a bit of a lasting hop bitterness.
This beer is so well balanced and definitely my favorite English Pale Ale. The nice pungent citrus, fruity hop smell made me think it'd be bitter but its less bitter than all the well crafted American Pale Ale's but has all that hop flavor. The hop flavor plus the body and mouthfeel of this beer makes it a unique pale ale amongst the sea of pale ales.
Its so easy to drink and matches up so nicely with the best of the best beers out there. Great Divide is such a top notch brewery even their Pale ale is a winner. Good beer from Colorado.

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic
(born on date: Jan. 22, 2014; drank on: Feb. 26, 2014)
L: clear brown/amber -- lots of red; weakish 1/4-inch head of off-white foam; no stick or lace but keeps a decent collar of foam
S: sour mash, sour grain ... grain and medicine
T: creamed corn; dirt; grain; sour grain
F: solid all-around
O: A+ for at least trying to brew an English pale but the brew is a D at best. if somebody put a macro-brew label on this, I might buy it. there is no malt taste at all, and what hops there are taste more like rubbing alcohol than Fuggles. too bad ... I had high hopes, but this is definitely a one-off for me.
