Great Divide Hibernation Ale

Appearance - Amber color, slightly cloudy, 1/2" head, little carbonation.

Smell - Good balance between malts and hops. Chocolate malt smell plus a floral aroma for hops.

Taste - Great hop taste with a hint of the malt. Good balance between the two, creating a great red ale feel (Mike) to the inexperienced pallet. 10x better than the brown ale, incomparable to anything of recent memory (Jimmy).

Mouthfeel - Medium body, not overly-carbonated, smooth finish, little kick at the end as the beer warmed itself. Every aspect of the beverage exaggerated itself with the rise of temperature.

Drinkability - Easily repeatable, would love to see how aging would effect it. Can't get sick of it.
