3.35/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Decent looking IPA, darker than average with a thin fading head.

Smells decidedly bitter, almost medicinal. Maybe some herbal nature to the hops.

This is one bitter beer, tons of general hoppiness and hop bitterness that gives almost a metallic pull on the palate. Unfortunately there's not a lot of specific hop character or flavors coming through for me. Very bitter but no fruit/spice/pine/mint/tobacco or any other gustatory notes to impress me here. I've had this IPA several times so I know it's not just this bottle lacking.

Mouthfeel is above average, good carbonation to balance out that hop bomb bitterness

Overall not my favorite. Great divide has better beers, even better IPAs (see fresh hop). If you're looking for a bitter bomb, this'll do, but if you want more complexity look elsewhere.

12 oz bottle, marked bottled on Oct 11 2011, purchased 12/2011

Poured into a British Imperial Nonic.

Pours a nice one finger head, which slowly reduces to a thin head, and finally to a film which lasts thru the pour, some lace.
Medium deep amber color, looks like real ale. Lively ale with a constant stream of carbonation.

The smell first hits you with a big blast of piney, citrusy hops, followed by rich malt. Quite enjoyable.

Nice crisp entry on the palate of mainly citrusy hops, rich delicious malt, and a full mouth feel with a wonderfully balanced carbonation. Overall a very well balanced ale and dangerously easy to drink.

Very good finish of bitter citrusy hops and some lingering malt. The hop oils coat the mouth and hang in there for quite a while.

While not in the top tier of IPA’s this is a very enjoyable drink. Great balance between the hops and malt. So very easy to drink despite the unnoticeable 7% ABV. For me a definite session beer.
Recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a 12 oz bottle, bottled 09/22/11, into a JFF is my BFF pint glass.

A: Poured a creamy one fingered head. Clear selective yellow and amber shows through, lacing is quite nice.

S: Some hop, citrus grapefruit, peak through, but not too strongly instead its blended with some malts.

T: Those hops definitely punches one in the face, but they are oddly sweet. The malts make up this IPAs sweetness. Citrus-->Malts-->Bitterness.

M: The lasting head makes this drink quite creamy with a nicely carbonated body.

O: For a brewery that makes exceptional stouts their IPAs are pretty disappointing in comparison. People talk about the pine that is supposed to be in this IPA, but I actually feel as if its lacking. I love pine in my beers and Im simply not picking it up here. This simply does not have the hops that I desire.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light amber with a slight haze, small white head.
Smells sweet, citrus and hops.
Tastes is really smooth & balanced, not very bitter for an IPA, there is a pleasant level of sweetness with it. The aftertaste almost reminds me of a lager.
Nice in the mouth, medium carbonation, doesn't dry you out like some IPAs.
Overall very, very drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle bottled on October 11, 2011, into a pint glass.

A: Clear amber/pumpkin color with a thin white head that quickly disappears. Not very appealing looking, rather boring.

S: There's a strong hop character to it, piney with citrus and cider notes, but it's also a bit funky smelling. I'm not a huge fan of the smell here.

T: There's this bitter funk to it with a bad cider taste to it. Citrus blended with pines and some apples thrown in.

M: Really crisp with good fizzy carbonation.

O: This is okay, but I have no want to ever buy this again, I'm not even in a rush to continue sipping.
