Poured with a nice amber color and big head. Grassy aroma hops dominate and hold all the way through. Balanced well with medium body of sweet malts. This is an excellent drink. I kind of view it as a barley wine light. To me it’s on the edge, any more hops would be over the top and any more malts would be too much. Very good.

This is one of my all time favorites. Deuced it up a couple years in a row. I’d say grapefruit and that sharp piney taste. I could drink about a thousand of these but I think that’s just me.

At first glance the beer is clear clean with a nice moderate head. The aroma hits you right off the bat with fresh hops. As you take the first sip you are hit with a light caramel and breast notes, but the soothe flavor of the fresh hops quickly takes over. The fresh hops lend a nice earthy/floral flavor that quickly fades to a clean Finnish.

Old notes from October.
Month old bottle poured into a snifter
This is my first experience with a wet hop brew so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The aroma is nice and bright although I assumed a beer of this style would have a massive hop aroma similar to opening a bag of hops on brew day. The label says grassy and citrusy and I definitely get both with the grassy being more upfront. The taste is super clean and easy to drink with little to no bitter aftertaste. This would make a great summer beer which fortunately, or unfortunately, lasts year round down in Florida.

A good beer from the Divide. I was a bit dissapointed with the aftertaste. I might have expected a little more bitterness and hoppiness, but overall an enjoyable beer.

Hoppy. Good. I enjoyed a 22 oz. bomber all by my myself. Unfortunately I enyoyed a few more assoted lawnmower brews after this, and ended up wth a considerable hangover the next day. I never knew hops could leave a person with such a headache.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy copper color with a nice frothy white to off-white two finger head with excellent retention and nice somewhat spotty lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus hops with some malt coming through. Taste starts with a slightly sweet malt flavor almost such as in a amber ale that quickley goes to a nice piney hop with a moderately bitter citrus hop finish that is nice and dry. The somewhat moderate carbonation allows this beer to go down nice and smooth. Overall this is a very solid APA and is nicely ballanced and as complex as anyone can except from an APA. Recommended but at $9 for a 22oz bottle will not be seeking out on a regular basis.
