4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber color. Heavy hop notes, dry finish. Little to no head. Very dry but tasty. Could pass as a barrel aged IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pine and citrus, taste is pine, citrus, lots of hop bitterness, sweet malt backbone, alcohol is somewhat present. I wish it had a higher abv (12%) and a little more malt presence, would make this a 5/5.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber bottle dated on Dec 13, 2013
Aroma - constant orange peel aroma, a little piney
Appearance - very clear amber/reddish color. Thick egg shell head with nice lacing
Taste - very well balanced between malt and hops. Nice lingering taste. I thought it was going to be a orangey zest bomb, but it is a solid tasting beer.
Palate - medium mouthfeel. Leaves a nice after taste
Overall - I was worried this bottle sat too long, but it has really held up nicely.

This is a great beer. Well balanced. I have just started enjoying IPAs and I have to say this is going to be a favorite. The hop flavor lingers for quite awhile after taking sips. Great for your average hop head.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at copperheads. Pours a decent golden color with hints of red. Not much smell. Minimal hops. Taste is a lot different. Hoppy as hell in the front end, dry in the back end. You can taste the high abv. Pretty decent beer but I could only have one. Def wrecks the palate.

Heavy pine aroma with citrus and a hint of floral. It is cooper-orange in the glass with a little bit of lacing. It has a strong piney taste, with rind, plenty of hops, with a bitter kick.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours copper color with white head. Sweet candy caramel aroma with fruity citrus finish. Flavor starts off sweet syrupy candy caramel malt followed by fruity mango and citrus flavors finishing with a big citrus hoppiness. Another fantastic offering from Great Divide.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy apricot with a minimal slight white head. Well-balanced flavor of hops, fruitiness and malt. Higher abv also is not overwhelming. A very solid, well balanced IPA.
