2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is not very hoppy, getting notes of wheat. Flavor is really light, there’s a bit of what and mild bitterness. Not much hops to speak of. Really misses the IPA portion of session IPA.
Can sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks DSG. Clear gold with a white head. A little onion and dust in the nose with some notes of tangerine. Lightly bitter taste with some citrus. Light body, light orange peel finish. glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 Bottle. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of dried fruits in the background. Head is small, frothy, slightly off-white, with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, medium amber, with some bit floating around. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a soft to lively carbonation. An okay beer, just not very IPA-ish. hman43 (1586) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2016
It pours golden with a haze to it. It has a moderate off white head. It has aromas of stone fruit, a bit of floral, and some caramel. It has flavors of stone fruit, caramel, floral, and a bit of pine. It has a moderate body on the light wide with a moderately bitter finish. Overall, it is an easy drinking session ipa with moderate malt backbone. GarrettB (1599) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2016
August 13th, 2014 - Great Divide’s lasso may be a session IPA, but it delivers enough flavor to engage, even here in the din and chaotically perfumed place of a pizza parlor. The foam is a solid 1.5cm of pearly, translucent bubbles, and the body is a clear, baseball mitt brown, colored with use, but not ragged and stained. The aroma is light and hoppy, with a hit of freshly unwrapped bubblegum to give it a Belgian finesse. And the body (again, contrary to the beer type) is full bodied, with a nice moderate hops profile. Grains delight and dance on the tongue, while a very mild hops speaks just above the din. As a session goes, I like this, and am confused by Ratebeer’s withering scorn and score (as of the writing of this review the score is a mere 3.24.) rdixon77 (2832) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Solid session. Big bitterness, some grapefruit, lots of hop bite. Medium bodied. Forgettable but good drinker.

From a Sampler Pack: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is light citrus and bready malt. Taste is pretty bitter and rather malty for a session IPA. Not a bad beer but nothing to write home about. McGarnigle (651) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2016
From a 12-pack. Good hit of hops here, definitely on the bitter side (not much of a malt backbone). Grapefruit and orange pith, maybe. Long aftertaste. Bottle of hops. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12-oz can. Pours a murky medium amber with a loose white head that sticks around, leaving plenty of stringy lace. Biscuity nose, medium caramel, tangerines. Creamy light body, flabby carb. Light caramel and biscuit on the mid palate, modest bite from the hops. Off finish. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2016
12oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Some fruitiness, citrus and toast. tfontana (974) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Can pour into shaker glass. Aroma is floral and bready malts. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, 2 finger-width foamy white head with poor retention but fair lacing. Taste is mix of bitter floral over bready malts. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, average to lively carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, a flavorful session IPA with all the right features (light, not terribly complex) but a little on the bitter side for me.
