Very grassy/vegetal smell, same on the taste. Slight citrus but mostly just very green vegetable hop taste. Idk if this got old quickly or what, but this was just not a very good fresh hop.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Piney and very earthy hop flavors. Truly one of my favorites. It has become almost impossible to get in Iowa. A fantastic beer hands down! Great Divide Co. has continued to brew unbelievable world-class ales!

On tap @ProofBrewing. Mouthful was definitely grassy hop flavor, with a small sweet malt presence lingering in the background. Though it seems to pack the hop punch of a lighter IPA, the lacking bitterness makes it a great session beer. Those things combined separate it from the hoard of ordinary and boring mass of pale ales. Good stuff.

22oz bottle. Poured a beautiful copper with a nearly white lingering head. Aroma is fantastic, bursting with wet hops and fresh pine. Hops continue to dominate flavor, followed by a sweet citrus and bitter finish. Excellent pale ale for me.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz bottle. Golden amber in color. Smells of mown hay, lemon and fresh green herb. Nice, stiff ad clingy head. Medium body and velvet smooth, it has an intense bitter grapefruit, grain and gritty flavor. The finish is crisp with some of that silky resinous feel in the end. This BEER is very well balanced in the middle with a lot of hop flavor and a more than adequate mouthfeel and malt backbone. Best fresh hop I have had.

Pours cloudy golden brown with lots of head. It has a good amount of grassy citrus pop to it. The bitterness is nice and it has a great balance. Very smooth, light and the finish is fantastic. Overall, an awesome pale ale.

Pours clear burnt orange with a small tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus and cereal. Overall bitter with a sweet finish. Pretty good beer, definitely an IPA with strong hop character.

Very good fresh hop taste. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Better than most apa offerings.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this beer. I felt it was more on the ipa side. Aroma was quite grassy with some piney and floral notes. Appearance was lighter than i expected but poured a nice light copper color with a decently thick head that left some lacing throughout. Taste was medium bodied and a little sticky mouthfeel. with some decent hop bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness but not much. Carbonation added a refreshing quality i liked and it had a nice long finish. Would recommend eating with thai food or spicy sausage. Very good beer overall. would buy again!

This was my first pint beer that I got. It was obvious that it was going to be a hoppy beer from the picture, but I didn’t realize that it would taste as good as it did. Great Divide has done me well many times, and I will continue to buy stuff like this from them.
This beer, if nothing else, makes you sit back and appreciate hops. This beer definitely reminds me of the Boulder Hazed & Infused. This is a definite rebuy.
