BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
greatdivide.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Lasso Session IPA.

LASSO is the new frontier of India Pale Ale. Brewed with a robust roundup of Columbus, Centennial and Cascade hops, its sessionable simplicity proves bigger isn’t always better. But make no mistake – the Wild West hasn’t gone mild. That same untamed IPA spirit thrives, and we reckon this’ll go down mighty fine.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: medium orange with a light to moderate haze and a few floaties. Head is a thin finger of frothy ivory foam. Not too bad.

Smell: sweetish, caramelly malt with a lightly citrusy, lightly earthy hop character. Pretty decent.

Taste: the malt is breadier than in the aroma, and is backed by light but nicely citrusy hops. I kind of like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this beer is a bit mild but I like it; it's definitely a super drinkable brew.

Smooth. Maybe slightly. A little fruity. Pine is good and has a nice bitter smell and taste. It's a pretty orange and has a nice head. I would get this again. This is a long the lines of a Pale.

An IPA. Nothing great but not bad. Nice orangish/Amber color. Aroma leaves a bit to be desired. Has a nice touch inside my mouth and good carbonation. Again not a bad beer but just a average IPA.

I bought a growler fill (Tap-A-Draft) of Lasso at Growler Guys. Poured in to a schooner.

Pours a rich gold color with a thick foamy white head.

Smell is a faint pine scnent. More pine than fruit.

Taste is a well balanced malt and hop flavor. Not overly sweet or bitter.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, with a bitter short-lived aftertaste.

Overall a good IPA. Not over the top on the citrus hop side of things. I'll enjoy this for a couple of weeks.

L - light amber body with thin hazy head

S - oddly enough it kinda smells like an old new jersey pizzeria

T - Slightly spicy hoppiness. Nicely balanced with the malt.

F - a little thin, but a decent body

O - not too bad overall.
