Great Divide Heyday Modern IPA

What the brewers say

“Multi-faceted tropical fruit, berry, and melon notes from the complex hops bill (American, New Zealand, Australian, and German varietals) but supported by the cereal-like malt character. This beer is hops-forward without being overly bitter and provides a balanced drinking experience.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bright floral hops, including green tea, grass, and lemon rind. Strawberry, black currant following with a fairly neutral malt aroma.”

Flavor: “The lemon and herbal grass in the aroma come together as lemongrass in the flavor with just a touch of bready malt to support. Notes of blue cheese and strawberries. Nice lingering resin-like bitterness that lasts until the following sip. The finish is dry and a touch astringent.”

Overall: “Clarity is amazing with great head retention that laces the glass. The floral and tropical presence makes you feel like you’re on an island beach. A subdued, but classic west coast IPA.”
