hoppy and malty dominate the flavors on this one. Very crushable due to the low alcohol content in this one. smells hoppy and finishes bitter with a hoppy bite. pours orange and yellow with a thin white head. had a bottle pour at home.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy straw color. Thick, white soapy looking head. A Slightly sweet but grainy smell. A bland almost musty malty flavor hints of hop bitterness. This is really a bland IPA.

Slightly citrusy and warm smell, taste is much more hoppy and citrusy than the smell leads on...pretty smooth though... Just too hoppy for me

As session IPAís go, itís alright. As Great Divide beers go, itís not much to talk about. It pours a hazy gold color, the head is thin, thereís no real lace. The hops in the aroma are subdued, but better in the flavor. On the front of the tongue there is some strong west coast hop character, but the finish is watery. Whatís worse, there is a sulfuric aftertaste that never goes away.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light copper color with a light floral aroma. Taste is a clean hoppy flavor, mild IPA flavor, tastes intentionally light. Easy drinking with a small bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, poured at home. Pours amber with white head. Robust malt aroma, fruity. Hops not particularly forward on the nose. Sharp flavors up front, bitter, resiny hops and strong malt. Bitterness heightens and persists through finish, which lingers and is slightly dry. Modest mouthfeel. Despite the strong malt aroma, the hop bitterness really overpowers the malt in the taste. Not quite as balanced as I would like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, primarily orange and grapefruit. Flavor mirrors the aroma, orange, light lemon zest, slightly sweet malt profile. Pretty standard fare for an IPA, but itís a very solid offering.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body under a one finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is a little too malty for my tastes in the style, lots of caramel and huskiness, and not much in the way of hops. The flavor is almost devoid of hops, Iím not sure where they came up with IPA for this beer. Just a minimal bitterness with a light leafy and green hoppiness. Thereís plenty of husky and grainy malt in here, but thatís not my idea of an IPA. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Probably the worst beer Iíve ever had from Great Divide, quite the disappointment.
