Great Divide Denver Pale Ale - 5.6%

12oz brown bottle. Freshness date etched on label.
It pours a dark coppery amber color w/ a smallish beige head along w/ some patchy and trailing lace.
It has a dry hoppy aroma with a solid malty grain background.
A sweet caramel malty taste gives way to a potent hop concoction. Grapefruit, citrus zest, metallic and floral hop bitterness prevail.
A mild sugary taste vies for attention, throughout. Like a kid sister; she's cute but doesn't belong with the big guys.
