pint can; amber color; great citrusy hop aroma; fantastic citrusy hop flavor on a medium bodied bready malt base; tons of citrusy hop character; about as good as it gets

Oh my gosh. This beer is freaking awesome. Massive hop assault in the nose; juicy grapefruit, dripping from the glass. Taste is full on bitter. There is no subtlety here. A hop monster for hop heads like me. I only wish I could buy it in Texas!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: BA’s ucsbmullet
Purchased: N/A; Received it on July 23, 2014
Consumed: Aug. 8, 2014
Poured a caramel, amber, semi-clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled caramel, soapy pine, citrus hops, floral hops, light rye hops, orange rind, spicy Centennial hops and some wet Cascade hops. Good on the nose, initially reminding me of Modern Times’ Blazing World.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Wow, this is tasty. Got caramel, earthy rye hops, wet Cascade hops, orange, grapefruit rind, citrus hops and faint floral hops. Pretty bitter and no hiding the 7.2 pct. ABV. Still reminds me of a double Blazing World.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. A bit overwhelming at times though.
Just a really good IPA. Would love to have some more La Cumbre’s.

Can. Canned 7.28 and drank 8.7. The look is clear, golden to orange in color, thinner off white head. The smell is obviously hops, pine, some dankness, a touch of fruit, grass, and earthy florals. The taste is a decided bitterness, pine, fruits, biting, and good. You can almost taste yourself chewing the hops.

Santa dropped this canned beauty off at my doorstep the other day. Pours a somewhat darkish orange color, cloudy appearance with a fluffy white head. Flora, citrus aroma. Taste of up front citrus smash, bittering grapefruit, and a dry finish. Very easy drinking. Great beer!

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 16 oz can shared by durwoodx and huhzubendah, thanks guys! The beer pours a beautiful clear, I mean absolutely clear, light golden orange with a lasting white foam head that slowly diminishes to a faint bubbly wisp and leaves no lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, bitter hops, a certain dank quality, and light pine notes. Flavor is bitter and complex: pineapple, grapefruit, pine resin, and an overall balanced and understated bitterness that allows this quenching beer to be easy drinking. Alcohol is well masked, medium bodied, and moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet and tangy orange juice, a delicious beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Can, dated 7/20...thanks burcmode! Copper tinted golden with loose white head. More onion and garlic than citrus faint caramel and crackery malt character. Taste is balanced, more so than the nose suggests. Bitter piney garlic up front, cracker malt mid, with pepper hop bittering finish that lingers a bit. Well done, but admittedly too much garlic/onion for me to freak out over this beer.

Draft at the brewery. Nice white head. Golden-amber color that’s spot on for an IPA. Great hoppy aroma that betrays a little more sweetness than the beer actually has. Taste is mind-blowing. Dank, piney hops with sone tropical fruit and the perfect bitterness. The balance in this IPA is nothing short of perfection. Best IPA I’ve ever had.

Huge thanks to Darrell for the hookup!
The beer is light golden orange and mostly clear with an inch of pure white head. Aromas of dank, resinous hops, pine, orange and grapefruit. Grapefruit and pine in the flavor with a general citrusy quality. Tangy and juicy. Soft carbonation, finishing with moderate bitterness and a hint of alcohol warmth. East to drink and delicious.
