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.

Growler pour at Danís. Straw colored, small head. Aroma is floral, tropical, and sweet. Somewhat hoppy flavor, very easy drinking. This was a bit flat, but from a growler I canít complain. Nice beer.

16oz can from Trukpro, thanks Dude! Pours out a very attractive amber/copper color with a decent white head. Aroma at first is vegetal and somewhat off putting, then as it warms it becomes very nice; notes of fruity citrus hops, light melon, citrus and light floral sweetness. Taste is of a nice fruity citrus hop note with light tropical fruit, melon, floral notes, sweet but not overly so in the background with a dry, bitter finish. Pretty solid.

16oz tal boy shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a dark hazy amber/orange body with a foamy piss bubble head. Aroma wasnít that great when it was cold but as it warmed it defientely got better. Notes of cat piss, soapy dish water, earth, caramel and some citrusy hops with warmth. Flavor is better then the aroma and also improves with warming, fruity overall with notes of pineapple, apricot, tangerine, orange marmalade, toast crusts, rapefruit rind. The body is dry and full with stronger carbonation, finishes dry and bitter. Good beer but warm this bitch up.

This poured a darker yellow to orange color with a white head. Aroma was nice grapefruit and tropical fruit, some dankness to with light caramel notes. Flavor was a little candy sweetness, with a nice amount of floral and tropical notes. Good but not great.

OldMrCrow (1810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Tap at Cowgirlsí in Santa Fe

I didnít know about this one before trying it, making the experience all the better for its unexpectedness. Brilliant IPA, tangerine peel augmented with dank deliciousness. The alcohol is apparent in the mouthfeel, but in a fully-bodied way rather than a hot one. Delicious, delicious beer and a total stunner to come of Albuquerque without any advance expectatoins.

Can. Big thanks to Trukpro for these jewels. Pours burnt orange and almost the the color of Indiana aged clover honey. Spicey hops all over the front end with mixed citrus brightness, oranges, grapefruit, pines, resinous oils, sweet fruitiness accented by sweeter caramel malts. Flavor is hop forward with sweet malt flavors, with a dry medium body moderately bitter finish. Medium warming character. fantastic beer.

blueturk (82) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On tap. A solid IPA with hops all around. Strong hop aroma with ample piney/citrus/catty. Full flavor with great hop bitterness and balance finishing perfect. I love IPA, and love this beer!

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Can... Lightly hazed yellow ale with golden highlights and a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma provides big Simcoe hops - earthy, musky and pissy. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor presents a heavy level of citrusy, grapefruity, musky bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish.

Pours a hazy gold, aroma of dank resinous hops, citrus and pine. Taste follows, not as bitter as the nose, a bit too sweet for my liking. Not as good as I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First a growler then tap now can. Not the same. Beer seems to be declining in quality.
