UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 Pours golden copper with a thick, frothy, creamy head. Strong aroma of grassy, citrus hops, with a hint of barley malts, and a slight nuttiness. Very forward citric/earthy hops, with semi-sweet caramel and barley malt background in the flavor. Palate is medium, nice and bitter with a little bit of spice from the hops, roasty malts linger, and a little nutty on the long finish. Very well balanced, and could easily pass for a good IPA. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Orangey tan body, small offwhite head, sweet hoppy aroma with strawberries. This does have a freshness to the hops in the flsavor profile; unfortunately, after a nice start, the flavors disappear into a weak finish. jimvy (131) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Bomber. Pours a deep, clear copper, with a creamy off-white head that last. There are some floaties in the glass (and bottle)...not sure why. Perhaps some yeast. Aroma is a nice mellow hoppiness with some toasty and grassy notes....pleasant. Medium body, some warmth in the finish. Flavor starts with an accertive bitterness, that last into the finish. Intense hop flavor, but the base beer carries it nicely. Some slight sweetness. Overall, a very nice, everyday drinking APA...very enjoyable, and much more flavor and complexity than is usually found in this style. DJC (238) - USA - DEC 20, 2006
Copper/amber body, with an off-white head. Even though the head diminished to a relatively thin layer, it produced a nice lace all the way to the end. Grapefruit aroma, and that is carried through in the flavor. Malts are also present, but they play a very minor supporting role. Somewhat lingering, grassy aftertaste. Full-bodied and quite smooth. Highly enjoyable beer. I can’t wait to try a few other Great Divide brews. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2006
bottle- extremely fruity aroma, strawberrys, ornages, flowers, dark orange/brown with little to no off white head, nice flavor, slight bitterness at the end when I expected much more. freshness in the hops indicates that it might be nice to have a few of these.

Resiney hop aroma, some spice. Pours golden pale with a white head. Resin, hoppy, pine, citrus, balanced with caramel malts. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2006
22 oz bottle split two ways. Pours amber, very lightly hazy. Citrus and floral hops up front in the nose with notes of tropical fruits and sweet malt. Taste is citrus, with a light piney bitterness, light fruits and caramel provide the body of this beer, with a light bitter lasting finish. sloth (2905) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Medium sized offwhite head settles into a solid, rocky little tuft on top of a clear amber/copper colored body. Lacing is splotchy and lasting. Nice fruity nose, citrus, tropical with light melon notes and some toasty malts. Body is medium/light, carbonation is brisk, a surprisingly resiny mouthfeel. Plenty of hop flavors up front, citrusy, orange, grapefruit, resiny with some medium sweet crystal malts and a touch toasty. With some warming it gets a touch grassy hop wise, a bit metallic, raw hoppines, freakin nice. Finish is dry, fruity, nice bite. A solid, big ass Pale Ale! Props to fly for my first bomber! and thanks to my secret santa for another!! Not to mention my local beer store is now stocking this lovely brew! GD rocks!

Amber in color with a big hoppy nose. Approaching a dry-hopped beer in both aroma and flavor but retaining a good body of sweet malt and very well balanced. Excellent. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Pours out a light amber color with a medium sized fluffy white head. Aroma was of citrus hops. Taste was nicely balanced with citrus hops but also with a slight malt. Very well balanced and very drinkable.
