Stop your search! This is it! Sir+Drinksalot (34) - Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2007
A perfectly balanced american pale ale. Very hoppy yet smoth and fresh.
Orange with a fluffy white head.
Aroma is light grass and citrus.
The Flavor is fantastic. Rich, with big hop at the end.
The only downside is that I only had one.
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Piney and very earthy hop flavors. Truly one of my favorites. It has become almost impossible to get in Iowa. A fantastic beer hands down! Great Divide Co. has continued to brew unbelievable world-class ales! nathan30533 (1022) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Maybe my new fravorite pale ale. Great tasting hops, wonderful aroma, and a very smooth feel in the mouth. Pours with white head. Great brew.
