This beer delivers on taste. One of the best/tasty IPA I have tried.

Pours a chill hazed deep gold/pale amber producing almost 2 fingers of loose, fluffy, white head & nice bubbley, sticky lacing well ringed around the glass. Aroma is caramel sweet malts, with earthy, citrus & pine hops. Taste big hop citrus & earth backed by pine, melon & a hint of tropical fruit balanced nicely with breast, caramel malt sweetness increasing in the middle fading to a long lasting bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, smooth, juciy & tongue coating with a light prickliness. A little chalky in the aftertaste. Superb!

WOWWW. I found two year old sixer of this beer for $3.00 each at Spec's down here in Beaumont, TX. That's essentially 50 cents for what is one of the best IPA's I've ever tried. Talk about aging well.

Chilled quickly in the freezer to get the bottle cold through and through. Poured into a pint glass, upon popping the cap I see a ton of carbonation escape in gas form. I just knew it had aged well. The pour left a big fluffy pillowy head which then made all sorts of crazy patterns as I took my first sips, even looking like a brain at times.

Smell is a cascade of delicious hops, with a caramel malty background keeping everything in check. Pretty dank, I've smelled louder beers (lol) but that's about the only knock I have.

This beer DELIVERS on the taste. Aged over a year (Oct 2015) did nothing but wonders. The smell represents the taste as a whole, but doesn't do the wonderfully hoppy, balanced beer justice. That same caramel comes in ever so invitingly with a clean wash down that leaves me refreshed and convinced that this is one of the best beers let alone IPA's I've ever tried.

The golden honey yellow tinge says it all. Nectar for the Gods. A Titan amongst beers. Thank you, Great Divide!!

Draft at Denver airport. Hops are clouded by overtly perfume flavor. Not for me. Debated sending it back without finishing.

Ruby/ amber color with tall sea-foam head and dense spiderweb lace. The smell is off the hook. You can smell bright floral scents from a distance. Closer, scents of grapefruit and biscuit come out. The taste is smooth and sweet, with luscious apple flavors. The hops hit with flavors of grass and lemon. The bisuut hints carry over from the smell. I'm generally biased towards more citrus flavored IPAs, but of the pomaceous flavored IPAs I've had, this is one of the best.
