P- Knickerbocker in Altoona, PA

from notes/memory.

A- a nice orange color with amber hues and very appealing. Very bright with the orange. Not much head but itcould be the bartender poured wrong.

S- Grapefruit, coriander and other citrus aromas. Hops hops and more hops.

T- the hops burst through onto the palate. grapefruit is significant and then comes some floral tastes. Quite equitable to each other.

M-a hops explosion. It feels likei bit into a grapfruit that is just overly ripe. A lil sour but good nonetheless.

D- I struggled at first but then i got my bearings about me and threw it back. A nice beer to have with appetizers.

Pours a very vibrant amber/copper color with good clarity. A three finger off white head forms and lingers with nice retention. Some nice lacing as well.

The aroma has a nice hoppy profile showing great piney notes and citrus as well. A subtle malt sweetness is also present in the nose.

The taste holds good citrus notes and a decent bitterness. A good malt backbone adds to the flavor. The malting is slightly hay like adding almost a bite familiar to that of rye.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a lively carbonation tingle.

Drinkability is fairly high. Flavor is great, and although the alcohol is moderately high it goes undetected. A nice IPA. I'm really glad I revisited this one because I've been let down a lot lately by other beers.

Pours a slightly cloudy copper color with a thick white head that laced the glass. Nice sweet malt aromas mixed with pine, floral and citrus hops. Smells great. The sweet malt flavor in this beer is very apparent up front and in the finish. The hop flavors are pine, citrus and spicy. The finish is citrus bitterness. Very tasty, a good balance of malt and hops.

12 oz. bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a hazy apricot-amber color with a big, creamy off-white head. Good retention.

Smell: Has a mild hop and spice aroma, alongside distinctly floral notes as well.

Taste: It has a level of sweetness about most IPAs. There's some spicy hops, but only mild bitterness, all carried along by this monolithic sweetness that is neither caramel nor citrus, but somewhere in-between.

Mouthfeel: Light- to medium-bodied with mild carbonation. Quite smooth.

Drinkability: The ABV isn't too strong, but the sweetness definitely takes control pretty fast.

Flavor-wise it is more akin to many DIPAs with the levels of sweetness involved. The hops don't seem to be particularly well positioned in the mix either. Too bad, as I was hoping for something more here!

Another nice offering from Great Divide. Poured an orange copper with a big, pillowy, soapy froth that remained throughout. This looked really nice. Smell was as expected. Big floral hops and very subtle sweet malt. This is spot-on for the style. Taste was juicy, resinous hops up front with plenty of bitterness and a nice biscuity malt on the finish. While I'm growing tired of this style and the big, over-the-top hoppiness, this is a really good example of the style.

Pours a golden amber in color with about a finger of off white head that exhibits decent retention. Aroma is pretty good. Lots of piney/resiny/citrus hops with a nice malty sweetness. Taste is pretty good with solid piney/resiny/citrus hop flavors. Solidly bitter but not overwhelmingly so. A bit of malt sweetness cuts through the hops and provides a bit of balance. Good mouthfeel with medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Drinkability is quite good. Fairly well balanced (although this particular bottle may not be the freshest example). Overall, easy to drink and quite enjoyable.
