Served out of a tap at a bar. Good ipa. Doesn’t live up to other great divide beers but is a solid ipa.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a light tan head. The modest aroma offers up sweet malts, a mix of fresh mango and citrus candy and then it gets into a bit of spicy to floral hops near the end of the draw. The taste delivers pleasing malt sweetened yet punchy fresh citrus hop bitterness that’s largely grapefruit and tangerine like. It then slides into light notes of floral hops, spicy earthy almost dank hops and a nice faint drying earthy tea note. This is a solid 5% brew with plenty of yummy fresh flavors, balance and harmony. Is 5% an imperial session IPA?

The complexity was average, but I really liked the low ABV for an IPA. Good solid beer but not one to write home about.

Amber color with a tin head. Strong candied orange and tangerine peel aroma. Punchy grapefruit and tangerine flavor. Highly bitter. Full body. A bit of dark caramel, but finishes dry.

Complex, or confused, aroma of citrus, pine, forest, steel. Mostly pleasant, but kudos for showing up strong. At 5% ABV, bitterness dominates the flavor, more pine and then some resin- but in a good way. Very clean and drinkable. I like their Titan more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear sunny gold with a fair khaki head that settles slowly and leaves some tight, intricate lace. Nose involves some soft peach and apricot notes, some pine, spice, honey and toasted malts. Lightly sweet, quite bitter. Lighter bodied but not empty feeling, oily, crisp and bright, with a lengthy bitter finish. Really nice brew, well-balanced with plenty of hops and very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run, bottled Jan. 10, 2014. And Great Divide is back in Virginia yet again. We’ll see how long it lasts this time. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, floral and resin hops, some caramel maltiness. The taste is bitter resin hops, candied citrus, citrus, some green hops and a solid caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, moderate carbonation, decent balance. Solid beer.
