Pours orange with a big white head, pillowy and uneven. Good lacing. Nose is malt and pine. Taste is caramel, malt, toffee, and grapefruit, with hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth and crisp. Overall, good stuff.

Pours a light amber with a gigantic tan head. This beer is hoppy, but it doesn’t taste quite right to me. Not my favorite beer.

Oh it dishes out an aroma...but it’s not a pleasant one...an average Pale Ale...nowhere near Titan’s quality...it’ll hit the spot, but now I know firsthand why this is considered a low end product of Great Divide...they’re so good at brewing even their "swill" is very drinkable....which IS impressive in its own right.

Dark amber, almost brown with a light tan head. It leaves some lacing. Aroma is floral and earthy hops, maltiness in the background. Finish is very bitter. Hops dominate the flavor. Medium bodied.

Livendadream (92) - New Mexico, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle pours clear light copper in color. Nice thick off white head with tight bubbles. No lacing on glass. Fruity flowery smell with subtle malt like aroma. Sweet on the tongue finishing with a mellow bitterness. Medium body minimal hop flavor. Nice balanced beer, smooth very drinkable session ale. SIDE NOTE: this bottle had a date of 6/18/2012. 11 months since bottled. I did not notice this till it was halfway finished. Beer had that not so fresh taste and it lacked the full hop flavor. It still was decent. Im sure if this were fresh i would have rated it higher. If i ever get a hold of another i will re rate it.

schwaiger (90) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - MAY 23, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a really beautiful medium dark amber with a big white head, mostly diminishing. Floral hoppy nose with dry herbs, green apple, honey. Some malted waffle and sweet butter. Initial flavor is a pleaant light bitterness. Some light sweetness and faint maltiness. Light to medium bodied with a creamy texture. Medium carbonation; bitter, metallic finish. Really good.

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.

BorksBabe (85) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Nice aroma of oranges and peach. Amber in color with a slight foam. Its aroma is misleading to the flavor. Very bitter and grassy! Bitter and snappy to the palate... overall I’m not impressed.

JohnCoyne (73) - Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Pours a clear light copper color in the glass with a a small white head that faded fast and left nice lacing. Smells of hops with a sweet floral undertone. Tastes crisp and hoppy with a malty middle and a crisp hop finish. Good and clean, easy to drink and not lacking in flavor. Tasty.
