COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve 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.

Wonderfully resiny. Drinking straight from the can its great! I feel like I’m camping kinda. Caramel backbone to hold up this strong hop presence. If you can not get this beer. Find someone who can. Its up there with the best.

Have had this gem of an IPA many, many times - cans, brewery tap and growlers....always so good. It has consistency, great hop bouquet and malty goodness. One of the best things to come out of Albuquerque.

Percy0103 (584) - MEXICO - JUN 18, 2016
Can, 473ml. A clear golden beer with a small white head. Floral aroma with lots of hops, resin and a hint of alcohol. Taste is bitter with a smooth hoppy character. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a floral aftertaste.

Sdaniel90 (861) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 18, 2016
Can, 473ml. Clear amber with a medium frothy offwhite head. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel, resin. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitterness. Delicious hoppy and roasted character into an astringent hoppy bitter finish. Exquisite IPA.

16 oz. can. Pours a medium thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, light ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 9) body.......nose is heavy pine, resin, citrus peel, light apricot, light allium, mild toasted malts with light floral honey, balance heavily to the hops.......taste is lightly sweet with mild toffee/caramel notes, strong pine, resin citrus including orange and tangerine, slight allium, finishing with a moderately strong, lingering hop bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, moderate alcohol warmth, lingering astringency, medium carbonation. This is a quite typical American IPA, which is hop dominated in both aroma and flavor. The mild allium contribution seems a common fault in these hyper hopped beers, perhaps a bit more malt would hide this minor flaw. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Aroma citrus, pine, tropical fruits, Appearance orange, clear, white foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate medium body, Overall not my favorite ipa. I don’t know what it is but there is a flavor that is not agreeing with me. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

Poured orange with lingering white head. Aroma was super grapefruit and tangerine light floral notes. Taste was very bitter piney resiny with large amounts of tangerine

notalush (5706) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Can - well-executed American IPA - floral, citric, and dank - clean, medium sweet malt base allows the hop character to pop but keep it from being overly bitter or abrasive, while still being assertive - my neighborhood brewery (Station 26) is still my go-to for my IPA fix, but this will certainly go in the rotation.

Danjo312 (107) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2016
Sehr interessant. Geruch wie Geschmack kaum zu definieren. Fruchtig, nicht tropisch, leicht nach Molasse und Weintrauben! Sehr erfrischend. Genossen aus der Dose, daher kaum Optik wahrnehmbar. Extrem erfrischend und schnell bitter werdend im Abgang. Leichtes Bubblegum Feeling. Richtig spannend und wirklich innovativ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, by way of trade with HenrikO. Cheers Henrik. Liking this box of beer! Dark gold, with a soft haze. Super sticky, film of white. Sweet, ripe summer fruits. Toasted malts. Notes of fresh sawn pine. Some resin. Sweet, gluey hoppage. Taste is chewy sweet, turning piny, resinous bitter. Hop oily, slightly sickly sweet, mouthfeel. Finishes much the same. Smells great. Sweet and piny.

Fresh can -- cheers, Michael! Bitter, a little malty, and satisfying. There’s a great balance between the hop flavor (fruity and especially pine) and the bitterness, which is moderately-high.
