4.5/5 rDev +9%
This brew pours a copper color with a frothy white head, some of which lasts until the end; thick lacing.
The smell is citrus, orange, melon and pine with a few roasted malts in the background; the hops dominate as they should in this style.
The taste follows the nose with orange, mint, lemon pine and a little bit of tobacco with a substantial roasted malt background. There is some alcohol leaking through but that does not detract from this brew or this style.
The mouthfeel is thick and chewy, hop oil remains on the tongue after swallowing.
Overall this is a very good Double IPA. A good representative of the style and another winner from "Great Divide"

4.02/5 rDev -2.7%
Poured from a 1 pt 9.4 fl oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange with brown highlights. Smells barleywine-esque. You get citrus/grapefruit, but also malty bread like qualities, and a tinge of alcohol heat. The taste is rather subtle, focusing on light citrus, bread, and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is dense. Carbonation is about average. Things get a tad sticky later on. Overall, a good dipa for those who like them to trend towards the barleywine side.
