COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LASSO is the new frontier of India Pale Ale. Brewed with a robust roundup of Columbus, Centennial and Cascade hops, its sessionable simplicity proves bigger isnít always better. But make no mistake Ė the Wild West hasnít gone mild. That same untamed IPA spirit thrives, and we reckon thisíll go down mighty fine.

Draft. Let's be real: not Great Divide's most impressive beer. Session-able yes. But not close to the Titan which is a most crucial IPA. There are hops yes, but I am getting overall water feel. Not too excited about this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sloth (2468) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Small white head thats short lived with some slight, splotchy lace left behind. Clear, light copper color. Nose is mostly malts, grainy along with some weird berry notes. Body is light, tingly carbonation. Just dry malt flavors, grainy, toasty with some notes of oxidation. Dry finish, no real bite but more of an astringent finish. Shame, was expecting more from the folks at GD. Bottle from statelineliquors.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bright, filtered amber appearance with a large off white head and decent lacing. Biscuit-like, malty aroma with random notes of citrusy hops in the background. Subtle bitter flavor as the hops move to the forefront, leaving a clean, dry aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.

Served out of a tap at a bar. Good ipa. Doesnít live up to other great divide beers but is a solid ipa.

Mad_Ferret (646) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Draught @ Taylor & Jones With a Twist, Hornstull. Golden amber with some chill haze and a short white fluffy head that stains the glass. Pungent salty fruity hoppy aroma with notes of mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, resin, marmalade and leather. Feels very GD. Taste has a pretty nice mix of tropic and citrus, marmalade caramel and salty notes of leather and resin. Grapefruit, mango and peach. Medium bitterness. Slightly faded hops leaves it a bit empty in the aftertaste with some mineral/metal. Medium dry. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Itís definitely in the range of other GD IPAs Iíve had, with that pungent saltiness, but it works out pretty fine in this one.

ericdevin (741) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from New Frontier Market, Eugene. Pours a slightly hazy orange, decent amount of off white head. Aroma decent if a bit heavy, biscuity, citrus. Body lively, but finish lacking, no clear hop bite. One of GDís more disappointing seasonals.
