Tasted from a pint can. It poured a dark Amber hue with a frothy head that left streaky lacing. Hop, pineapple, and citrus aroma. A well hopped taste with a slightly bitter back.

Can. Copper color. Aroma of orange peel and citrus. Flavor is heavy citrus hops and a medium amount of caramel sweetness. Hop flavors shine and are well balanced although i think the 7.2 starts to show up as it warms.

Juicy, tropical aroma. Flavor is floral/nectar/honey, grass, pungent mango and passion fruit, citrus rind bitterness. Damn this is truly amazing and I really appreciate them caring enough to list when it was canned on the four pack carrier.

Draft at the brewery. Solid American IPA. All the expected attributes from the average beer geek ... sturdy amber colors, nice head retention, enticing earthy aroma of pine forest. Quite drinkable, full of well balanced flavors you’d expect. Delish. (#5908, 10/28/2014)

L’aromatique est désertique mais la gomme de pin pointe. En bouche ya un aspect aqueux qui se mêle à la résine et décuple la buvabilté. Des notes de thé noir, de sapinage et d’agrumes amères s’agglutinent délicatement pour une signature propre à La Cumbre. Une pliny poivrée.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 This is the best IPA out there. This is THE ipa. I don’t care about Pliny, Heady or anything. This beer is so much better. This isn’t for anyone looking for a nice sweet malty ipa. This is all about the hops. It’s hoppy, it’s aggressive, and it’s perfect. This beer does everything right, when most breweries do it all wrong, and you’ll never have a better beer in your life. Citrus, pine, tropical fruits just dominate the aroma and taste. Theres no weird malty sweetness here. When you make it out to New Mexico buy a four pack and enjoy this. I’ve had this under four days old and it’s absolutely delicious. This is the best beer in the world and you’ll be lucky to try it. Cheers.

Shared can. Pours clear gold with creamy white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, pineapple, lemon zest, floral notes, and faint toast and caramel. Flavor is good citrus and grassy hop presence, dry malt base, grapefruit esters, and some toast; dry and smooth. Medium body and carbonation.

Can brought back by David and shared tonight at the Christmas Party.
Huge dank resinous hop aroma. light sweet bready maltiness. Smooth hop flavor and bitterness. That’s a damn fine IPA right there, if I lived closer I’d drink these often.

My very first stop at the Boulder IPA Fest. Went back several more times. So excited to try this beer, and it did not disappoint. Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Very hop forward with tons of citrus notes. Clean bitter finish. Lived up to the hype.

It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pine, resin, citrus and grapefruit. The taste was bitter, hop forward, with pine and grapefruit notes. Very nice.
