Bottle date best by Dec 30, 2013
Pours a super clean orange with thin white head

Aroma- big grassy hop resin, musty mango, citrus rind, flower pedal

Taste- juicy and resinous: juicy grapefruit and orange with subtle tropical fruit, earthy wet hop resin surfaces in the middle with sweet bready malt, finishes quite dank and sticky with piney/oily hop resin and traces of citrus

Feel- big for a pale ale, sticky, resinous, balanced

Well I am so pleasantly surprised by this. I was quite disappointed with last year's release (in fact, I kept coming across a similar very astringent grassy note in many of their beers that threw me off, not the case here). This is a great wet-hopped beer with all the right resiny, oily hoppy goodness. Well done Great Divide
