great beer, not sure what to consider this one, a stronger pale ale or an IPA, but this one was good, bought this beer in a 22 oz. serving bottle ina recent trip to belmont station in east portland, drank while brewing my own wheat beer on a monday night in mac oregon, good beer, great color, I thought with the name it would be more hoppy and bitter but it was actually more of a subtle taste.

Bottle purchased in Columbus for about $5. The appearance was brilliantly clear, pale copper, thick and frothy topper. The aroma is mostly hops, fresh and resiny. The taste is OK, a nice balanced pale ale base with a blast of fresh hops giving a bitter punch, tasty enough to keep my interest through the bottle. Overall this is not something I'd miss if I didn't see it again, but it's far from bad.

On-tap at the Great Divide Tap Room.

A: Deep amber, with nice clarity and mild carbonation. A soapy cream tinged cap has strong beginnings, good retention and leaves a goodly amount of lace.

S: Citrus, pepper and pine dominate. There are some toffee notes in the background, but the focus is placed squarely on the hops.

T: Bittersweet toffee starts things out. A moderate bitterness comes on fast. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit, pepper and pine intermingle nicely; with no one flavor overpowering the others. Finishes with a long lasting bitterness.

M: The medium body is oily and slick. Carbonation feels about right.

D: Overall, this is a very nice APA. The hops add a lot of flavor without making the beer a hop bomb. A very nice effort from Great Divide.
