COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? Itís no secret that this is what we excel at. Weíve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Explosive hop aroma- herbal, piney, oily- with some pale malts. Comes together like weed. Flavor of oily, herbal, resinous hops, pine resin, and pale and sweet malts. Light body, medium carbonation, and a bitter, coating mouthfeel. Giddy up. This west coast-style IPA brings it.

Great smell to this one, they arenít lying about the hopiness. The flavor is just as aggressive, feels like a hop punch. Bitterness lingers a bit. Overall, a great beer.

I'm not sure what to say. Poured out of the cool tall can, it is a lovely orange color. I'm just about finished with my third (aren't Friday nights great?), but I can't decide if I like it or love it. My UPS delivery of this beer was really cool, so that adds to the positive vibe ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can @ salone del gusto (papazian event). It pours with a good head on top. Good bitterness, very spicy. Great beer.

kathouse (1016) - Nevada, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Now, Iím not a super IPA fan, but Iím working towards it and this beer sure helps. Pours an orange amber with a 2 finger off white foam. The foam dies down but that hoppy aroma sure doesnít. Resiny, citrus, and appealing. Medium body has a thick hop bitterness. Body supports well without sweetness. Finish is dry, clean, and very smooth. This is outstanding.

Can courtesy if mike. Thanks! Pours orange light amber color with off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is awesome. Bitter citrus, a touch of garlic, sweet malt in there, and more bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is ultra smooth. Bitter citrus resinous hops balanced by sweet caramel malt. This is an awesome brew. Thanks again mike!

Pours a clear golden/orange with a large off white head...nice lacing. Aroma is a bit subtle but has melon and rind...a bit skunky in a good way. Flavor has melon and kiwi notes with some earthy bitterness...touch of hoppy spice. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a melon/earthy/bitter finish. This is more of a subtle but very well crafted IPA. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

This is what a real IPA should taste like.....100 IBU and 7.2 ABV. This hangs with and exceeds just about any good IPA from the Pacific Northwest and the Gold Medal at the GABF in 2011 talks the talk and certainly walks the walk. New Mexico craft brews have come a long way and are now held to the same standards and competing with those from Colorado, California, Oregon, and Washington. There are many good IPAs out there, but Iím convinced this is there best around for American Style.
