3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light, golden amber color. Good one-finger white head. Good retention. Quite good lacing.
Very citrus dominated hops profile. Big grapefruit and orange zest, here. Great grassy presence. Smells fresh and new.
Pine and citrus bite dominate this one. Fresh, grassy flavor. Malt is hidden way down inside this one. Minimal sweetness on this one.
Crisp and clean mouthfeel. More waterey than I prefer, though.
Too hoppy for me to enjoy on a regular basis, but that’s just personal taste preference. It’s still an overall good hoppy brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Getting near the end of the quest of rating beers I’ve had before. Pours a copper/golden color with a small off-white head that disappates quickly. Immediately you can smell the fresh hops from the pour, but also you can smell grassy aromas, some floralness, a bit of lime. What I would classify as a green aroma. Tastes very similar to the smell, with the fresh hops being very prevalent. Fairly smooth going down. A very nice beer, one of my favorite fresh hops, though as far as APA’s go, FFF’s Alpha King blows it out of the water.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finally found this in Atlanta. I really the fresh hop beers, when I can get them. The aroma was only moderately hoppy with distinctive grass and citrus. Rocky, off-white head wit excellent lacing that lasted longer than I expected. Initial flavor was moderately bitter with a light, sweet, short finish. Carbonation was quite flat. This was a good, but not great beer. As far as "fresh hop" beers go, this is the best I’ve had for a while.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Not sure when my bottle was from (no date), but there was so much sediment in the bottle that I had to leave a couple ounces to avoid getting it in my glass. The flavor was OK, not what I was expecting, but I think I got an old poorly strored bottle. Great Divide is one of my favorite, if not no.1 brewery, so I’m thinking it was the liqour stores fault.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours orange/yellow with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma is quite nice, mostly hops and a touch of orange zest. Taste is a bit more mellow than the aroma, starts with strong floral hops, a touch of caramel and malt in the middle, fininshes dry and bitter with a touch of spice. Fairly thick for a pale ale, a bit of syrup is left behind. Damn good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle into Tulip. Minneapolis.
Appearance: Copper in color. Very slight haze, but mostly transparent. Very little head.
Aroma: Hops - I get mostly floral and piney. Light malty backbone.
Taste: Mildy bitter. A touch of sweetness.
Palate: Medium/thin body. Slick texture. Moderately long finish.
Overall: A pleasant beer, but a bit of a disappointment. It is a pale ale I suppose, but I was hoping the hops would be a little less delicate. Still, the flavor is nice and the hop profile is well done.

This is an awesome fresh hop beer. This is the type if fresh hop beer other fresh hop beers wish they could be. Great golden/orange color with white lasting head. Wonderful citrusy aroma. Overall tasty beer.
