Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? Its no secret that this is what we excel at. Weve 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.

An above average IPA, really pretty solid. Floral and citrus, nice combo on this. Worth trying to get if you can.

Fresh can straight from the brewery 5 days old Pours a cloudy burnt orange color. Aroma is crisp hops with heavy tropical fruit notes: Pineapple, peach, grapefruit, tangerine. Sweet bready malt. Its all there. Taste is bitter hops up front but not overly so. The middle is more tropical fruits with tangerine and grapefruit being the most notable with a drying bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall a top notch beer. This is one of the best Ive had. Exactly what Im looking for in an IPA. Top 5 easily. The best? Maybe...

On tap at High Noon Saloon in Old Town Albequerque. Pours a pale amber with a thin white head. Mild aroma, but strong hop flavors of pine an citrus. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can, thanks to mads for the sample. golden with a steady white head; plenty of grapefruit and pine in the aroma; plenty of bitterness even for my tired palate at the end of a long session; crisp and invigorating

Tangerines and spring flowers just ticked my nose. It's got a lovely light copper color with very little head. The flavor is where it's at with this one. Tons of hops bringing honeysuckle and grapefruit right up front and actually finishing all the way through. Only slightly bitter as the hop oils really shine in this IPA. I'm gonna go ahead and say this is the tastiest IPA in the southwest. Yup...I said it. Wait...SoCal isn't considered southwest right? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
