3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich dark body, white head disappearing quickly into tiny bubble-haze skin. Smells fresh like a dryer sheet. Medium malts, floral hops, and yest that nears California Common-style ale-temp lager yeast. Body is robust without breaking a board over your teeth. Finishes clean and sweet, moving toward lingering bitterness moments after the swallow.

Pours amber with a finger of whipped creamy foam. This falls to a quilt of the same. Some pine, citrus and a hint of body odor on the nose, nothing remarkable. Taste is malty with a dominant english and oxidized character. Medium body with moderate carb. Decent for drinking, nothing to send home about.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at 3R6P. Not much of an aroma to this, with just a little bit of hop character. Medium amber with light haze, toped with thin white creamy lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts with light sweetness and carbonic acidity. Nice hop profile with decent hop flavor and bitterness throughout. Dry medium bitter finish with beany hop after.

There really isn't much to it. No hops, little malts. Least favorite of the Grest Divide line.

This English style ale is similar to most IPA ales in terms of its hop dominance. However, the golden color and nice head speak of the fine malt flavoring, which is nicely balanced with the hops. It leaves a refreshing taste on the palate, with just a shade of cloyness.

Bottle into shaker. An enormous amount of head. Took over 15 minutes to pour the entire beer in the glass and still retained tons of carbonation. I think something is amiss here. Anyhow, orange cloudy color and did I mention tons of carbonation? Sweet aromas, citrus, honey, light spices. Taste is bitter and metallic and the palate is so saturated with carbonation, itís hard to tell anything else. Itís like drinking alka-seltzer. Maybe I got a bad one. Bottled on Jun 03, 2013.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grassy, floral, hoppy, earthy aromas. Bread, bitter, hoppy, grassy flavors. Somewhat boring pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
More powerful than I wouldíve expected from an English style, but coming from Great Divide, it makes more sense. Malty body, lots of bread and caramel. Nice hoppy beginning.

On tap @ Great Divide. Golden orange pour with a white head. Floral hops, orange, and a bready malt nose. Sort of doughy, a bit of caramel, and earth. Flavor is big on the dough sweetness. Biscuit, caramel, bread, and toast. Some grass, earth, and a hint of orange.
