Bottle at Nrrebro Bryghus, shared with Marsiblursi.
Orange color with a white head. Fresh hoppy acid, but also a bit Belgian scent. Great hops, a bit chocolate taste. Too high CO2 level.

Small, frothy, off-white head that completely vanished. Amber color. Great aroma. Moderate hoppy, pine, citrus and pine resin aroma. Initial flavor is moderately sweet with a heavy sweet finish. Texture was dry and body was medium. Excellent example of a West Coast IPA. I think Ill buy a bunch of these. Basically a throttled back Hercules.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Pours a bright somewhat hazy yellow-orange with a kinda fluffy off-white head that seemed to also have a slight yellowish tint to it. Caramel malt and citrus seem to shine through in the aroma, not as powerful as I wouldve thought. The flavor is similar with more malt coming out than hops with a slight warm fruitiness that comes though..the hops presence seems to be stringest torwards the back but even then its not very big. Nice mouthfeel, solid body that finishes a bit thick, but the bitterness in the finish makes it nice. A pretty decent IPA overall, the hops presense seems to come out more as it warms.

Dogbrick (11857) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Clear dark amber color with a thick and fluffy off-white head, and an even thicker plateau of foam in the middle. Sticky patches of lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium-bodied and smooth with a nice balance between the citrus, piney hops and malt flavors. The finish is tart and lingering, and consists of bitter hops and citrus. All in all this is a textbook IPA and is enjoyable from start to finish.

pilsnerrogge (2847) - Finspng, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2006
[Bottle] Amber coloured with a firm head. Aroma is hops. Long hoppy bitterness with notes of apricots. I like IPAs, this was a god one.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2006
This is a fanatics IPA! It is easy drinking and not overkill in any area by any means, and still it is packed full of tasty flavors. Appearance: Pours a beautiful rich amber color bordering on ruby with an eggshell white head that thick and foamy. Spotty rings of lace cling to the glass and a soft swirl brings out loads more lace and invigorates the frothy cap. Smell: Gorgeous! Pine sap seems to rise from the glass and coat the inside of my nose all the way back to my thought. I can taste this beer through the aroma. Citric elements in prefect harmony with sweet toasty malts. Taste: Sweet buttery malt and fruit flavor up front followed immediately by a bold hop character. the hops are an iron fist with a velvet glove on the palate. There is so much freakin flavor packed in there but relatively little bite. This beer absolutely paints you palate with bitterness top to bottom it is amazing. And the grapefruit aftertaste lingers seemingly endlessly. mmm Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is juicy and oily but large and creamy. the hops prick and prod, tickling the mouth and with a nice creamy feel the beer slides right through your mouth. Drinkability: WOW! this is one of the best IPAs I have tasted. It not the biggest harshest but it may be the most spot on (what I am looking for in an IPA) beer Ive had the privilege to try. Great Divide, this one is out of the ballpark! Well done! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden highlights. Rocky and extremely lacy ivory head. Big citrusy hops aroma, tangerine and grapefruit mostly. Taste is bitter, bitingly bitter. Lots of grapefruit here. The sweet hops from the nose is not evident, this beer took the gloves off and delivers blow after blow of bitter citrus to my tongue but not in a bad way. Could use a bit more malt profile for balance. A pleasing long lingering bitterness on the tongue and back of throat. Dry. I like it, could drink a bunch but the hops are just a bit harsh.
