Great Divide Brewing Hazy IPA
What the brewers say
"A juicy and balanced mix of citrus hops that bring out the aromatic characteristics of papaya and mango and finishes with a hint of ripe strawberries."
What our panel thought
"Smells like freshly picked hops, a mélange of dankness, grapefruit, passion fruit, pine. Solid malt backbone balanced with smooth bitterness. Hop flavors dominate: pineapple, pine resin, diesel. West Coast flavor in a hazy IPA. Soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Pleasantly bitter, not harsh or astringent."
What our editors thought
"Vivid fresh-cut grass on the nose. Sip rides a classic orange-pine line, with significant bitterness. Old-school IPA palate meets new-school techniques."
