From a single bottled about a month ago into a Great Divide Cervoise

A: Clear golden orange, big 3 finger puffy white head, good lacing
S: Huge (for an IPA) pungent hoppy mixture of tangerine-like citrus (both juice and rind), pine, flowery notes, with the bready caramel malty sweetness struggling to keep up.
T: Like the nose...really strong flavors but I go back and forth about whether the different hops t harmonize quite as beautifully as promised by the nose. This time I'm saying "not quite" but last time I had this I thought it was almost ideal. Regardless, great fun to taste and drink, with great combination of bright citrus, dank earthiness, sharp piney notes, and a very pleasant but not overpowering bitterness.
M: sticky, medium carbonation, zesty but creamy, pleasant bitterness and dryness.

Overall: These guys know their way around many different beer styles, and like their other styles, the IPA is a beaut. Delicious!

This is a very solid beer. I'd like to get a clone recipe and change the hop bill a bit

Great thick head that sticks with the beer low into the glass. Amazing smell that is distinctly IPA. Great flavor and a great place to start for any beer drinker to get into IPAs. Bitter enough to let you know there are definitely hops there but not too bitter to put one off from exploring the rest of the IPA range out there. 4.5/5
