Great IPA. Pour is a beautiful golden color with an off white head. Aroma is amazing. Filling the air with hops. Flavor is a bit weak and therefore a slight markdown. Amazing Brew!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Beautiful clear copper body with a short tan head that lacks retention, settling into a foamy messy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is weak, but leans a bit sweet showing malts with a sweet leaning citrus aroma. The malts come off a little like bread and a hint of caramel.
Taste: Moderately bitter with a semi-sweet doughy malt base, I find myself enjoying each sip. The hops come off a touch herbal with some citrus and the finish lingers for a little of spicy bitterness.
Palate: Full-bodied with mild carbonation.
Overall: Very solid IPA with a good lasting bitterness. This is easy to drink for those who love hops, well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark clear amber, slightly higher viscosity than normal ipa. Little bit of off white head. Strong pine aromas mixed with some citrusy orange peel and a lingering sweet bready note. Flavor is dominated by piney/sticky hops with a slight tart apricot flavors. Not overly hoppy with a balanced malty sweetness in the finish. Full bodied. Good, not great.

2.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle dated Dec 3 2013, so 2 months old. Suspect itís bad, as thereís no hop aroma whatsoever. Pours a clear golden color, deep malty flavor counterbalanced by significant bitterness. Resinous palate, but honestly none of the piney, citrus, grapefruit or other hoppy profile Iíve come to expect in an IPA, and Iíve easily had more than 100 varieties. Either itís a bad batch, they put the wrong labels on another beer, or it just plain sucks for an IPA. But not a bad beer if you like malty brews. Disappointed because I love so many other beers from Great Divide.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My learned off-sider (an academic of repute) said that this beer smelled either of compost or silage. Personally, I reckon it smelled of apricots, peaches and vegetal hoppiness, but he wasnít to be swayed.It had a full body, definite, but not overwhelming bitterness and looked a gorgeous orange amber with a fulsome and persistent white head. I was left with a lovely lingering orange and apricot finish and marvelling at how my companion rose to the top of the law faculty when he couldnít smell the beer that was in front of him properly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours super foamy. Two fingers of beer with nine of foam. It took 15 minutes to get the rest poured. The body is a hazy medium straw color.
The aroma is mango in the pine forest.
The taste is dominated by a bold and dry grapefruit bitterness with some lemon and orange.
The texture is dry with moderate carbonation.
If you like super dry bitterness, this beerís for you. It was a bit much for me though.
