look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 22oz bomber into, once again, the nb globe.
Pours a deep gold with thick white foam, good carbonation rising up from the bottom of the glass, head recedes back to an easy half inch of thick foam. Lots of pine and dank resin on the nose, some bread, a touch of citrus and grass. Flavors follow the nose. Bready malt backbone, just enough to support the hops that dominate the flavor. I get thick, resinous pine hops with a bit of citrus as well. Great hop presence in this beer. Mouthfeel is dry, yet oily and sticky from the hops. Overall, out of the fresh hopped beers this year, this is hands down the best.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium globe glass.

A: Poured a clear, gold/orange/copper with about 2 fingers of foamy off white head. This dropped back to light lacing, a foam ring and sticky foam on the sides of the glass.

S: Some hops, malts, grapefruit and maybe some other citrus, hay/freshly mowed grass. I detected just a hint of pine at the end of the first whiff.

T: Hops up front followed quickly by the citrus and malt backbone. With that, a sourness and a grass-like flavor as the beer warmed in the glass. Drinks pretty clean with a dryer, bitter finish. Spicy??? Though I tasted that, not too sure. No alcohol taste detected.

M: Light to medium body with a dry finish, leaving a hoppy, spicy taste on the back of the tongue. Carbonation was good, not too much, not too little.

O: Decent take on the pale ale from Great Divide. Very drinkable, finishes well and it's definitely something I would have no problems buying again.
