Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy, dark orange appearance with a white head. Sweet citrusy, somewhat spicy, toasty toffee malty, dark citrus fruity aroma. Slightly piney bitter hoppy, orange-tangerine citrusy, pretty spicy, peppery flavor. Really an awkward taste and aroma. I’m not feeling it.

Wow, a New Mexico beer. Much rarer than an illegal alien crossing via New Mexico, which is a goddamned shame. The pour here is clear deep gold with little head, a 3. Nose is pale malt, roasty and slightly charred with some funky yeasty esters, apricot and honey. Good nose. Taste is pale malty, slightly sweet and with a solid fruity front note, and with late spicy yeasty estery notes, finishing like a fine chardonnay mixed with apples and a bier de garde. Good complexity here, and a nice brew here.
