"4 month old bottle (still hope to land a fresher one) but it’s hard to tell if the hops are subdued to to age or the style. GDs signature malt bill is there, which is always nice, though this is a little more maltcentric than i’d prefer. some grapefruit and bitter hops make an appearance, though, and the feel which started thin grew lively. not bad, but not great."

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy dark gold with a significant head and sticky lacing. Mainly malt aroma with a small amount of wet grass. Definitely rich malts abound. Starts to make you think it’s an ESB, but then stops just short. Truly an English pale ale.

Aroma is fruit, mildly grainy malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is fruit, biscuit malts, mild earthiness and citrus hops/mild bitterness in the finish.

I would actually choose the DPA as my session beer of choice from Great Divide. Mildly hoppy, not overly sweet. A malty backbone.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
A floral aroma supported with bread and citrus notes. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a thin non-lasting white head and no lacing. Small solids were suspended in the liquid. The taste is malty upfront with hints of molasses and bread, but the finish is definately on the hop side of the scale. Citrus, pine, and hop bitterness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, an okay pale ale. Nice juxtaposition of flavors.

The body has a slight haze and a faded orange gold color. There is a lot of tight fine carbonation supporting a tall off white head. The head is thick, creamy and long lasting. It also makes lots of cool lacing on the glass as I drink. In the nose there is a mix of modest pale bready malt with some balanced hops. The hops are some what lemony, floral and leafy. The flavor has a good base maltiness with a solid bready and pale grain with a light fruity back note. This hooks up with the hops and brings nice floral and mild lemon like citrus notes with a little herbal/leafy character as well. The hop bitterness takes over in the finish and lingers nicely and begs for some nice salty pretzels.
