A little bland for a hoppy goddess. Bottle, home, Feb 2016.

2015 version - we were at the brewery in CO the day it was being made! Fluffy foamy white head that very slowly dissipates leaving a coating of foam and lacing down the glass. Has very floral grassy aromas. Medium in body and smooth mouthfeel, the sweet malty backbone is nicely balanced by very fresh grassy floral hop flavors. Has a crisp clean bitter citrusy hop finish. Very very good, drink it as soon as you get it! Whole cone hops are from the Pacific Northwest.

Very light, slightly sweet. Slightly hoppy like an IPA. Large head. Not as crisp upfront

Very hoppy for a pale ale. I like this a lot.

Lives up to its name. There is a good taste of fresh shops but not too strong. Strangely, a little bit of a smoky flavor. Not bad but nothing stands out but the somokiness. Bottle 3/2014 profile - February 7, 2014
Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, hoppy profile - December 13, 2013
Best aromatics of any beer I've come across. Not only the best pale ale I've ever had, one of my all-time top 5 of any type. Great hop balance and light mouth feel. Strong head retention. Smooth and doesn't linger in the mouth. Tastes very fresh, as the name suggests. Probably the most even and drinkable beer I've ever had. 5 stars - perfect.

I love the stouts that Great Divide produces but normally not a big fan of their IPAs. However, the was exceptionally good. Very crisp clean and really fresh tasting with an almost earthy quality. Very nice
