UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 bottle. slightly amber golden color. lots of great hops. nicet and ballanced. quite spicy as well. great beer. rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2006
Nice light orange/yellow color with thin white head. Aroma fruity and sweet with wheat, malt, and mild hops notes. Smooth flavor with hops primarily present but not as bold as expected and rather grassy flavored. Hops linger nicely on palate. I’ve had better... see Hercules! abb73 (27) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2006
No matter how many I try, I keep coming back to this one. It is so well balanced. A nice sharp hopiness rides smoothly atop its malt sturcture. This is just a perfect IPA. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2006
Bottle. Light amber colour with a medium sized white head. Very nice IPA. Along with the hoppynes it is also nice and malty with a well balanced sweetness. Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2006
good ipa, typical northwest ipa, citrusy with a very strong hop aroma. smooth tasting, good lacing and very drinkable. a good ipa, but nothing special.

Not quite on par with their Hercules but close. Great Divide is a great brewery, they rarely miss. Wish I could find it in San Francisco area. thehinge (297) - Nederland, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Orange pour with a small white head...does lace a little, though. Aroma is full of piney goodness. Citrus front end with a hoppy finish. Very good. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours amber\copper with a small white head. aroma of hops, caramel malts, and citrus. Flavor is carbonated, sweet caramel malts, pine, citrus, with a bitter finish. Good body, good brew. bindpmc (88) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Deep copper, fairly clear pour. Very little head and just a bit of lace. Noticeable lack of hops in the nose, but roasted malt toffee is certainly dominant. The bitterness comes through in the downtake - floral and pine and spice. The flavor progresses back to some of the malt tones in the nose at the finish, but with a hint of orangey bitterness that lingers. Excellent flavor balance. The feel is a little slick, but no more so than most typical IPAs. vyvvy (6834) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Pours cloudy amber with a generous soapy light tan head with good retention and lacing. Mainly malt aroma, very thick musty caramel with traces of caramel - quite British. Medium / full bodied with quite a bit of soft carbonation. Taste is between a British and American IPA. Starts with caramel musty malts and spicy hops and finishes with citrus and piney hops aspects that is quite resiny. Nice IPA.
