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.

Served out of large sized can into a glass. Sold in a 4 pack with canning date stickered on the top. Pours a dark honey color with a creamy head. Smell is hops, hops, hops. Taste is hops. Bitter and citrus but smooth and balanced. I notice also a small amount of pepper/spice. There is probably malt in here but it will be a moment before the hops wears off. After that happens a delicious malt comes to the fore. This is a delicious beer and it has a respectable alcohol content so makes for a nice, long drink.

Definitely an unbalanced, hop forward IPA. Fruit forward smell, it finishes very bitter. Enjoyable enough ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Marcos for this lovely extra! Canette fraîche d’une semaine. Liquide parfaitement translucide à la robe ambrée. Un geyser de fines bulles jaillit du fond de mon ballon et alimente ainsi une fine mousse off white de surface. Belle tenue collante sur le verre. Arômes dominées par le conifère, l’aiguille de pin ainsi que par une touche de miel. Quelques fruits à jus semblent curieusement pousser dans cette forêt boréale J’anticipe, à raison, un liquide collant au fond de la gorge et bien résineux. Texture huileuse et collante qui véhicule un fruit caramélisé sur le BBQ. Oui, je suis ici en présence de tranches d’ananas grillées sur le feu. Un caramel de fructose s’est formé malgré un fruit qui n’est pas encore à point. Une fois le couvercle du BBQ refermé, le conifère revient à la charge dans un élan résineux très west coast. Beaucoup de corps bien malté, cette bière est sans doute très bien faite, elle n’a simplement pas le profil pour me bouleverser.

rosenbergh (10701) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Draught at the La Cumbre Brewing Co, Albuquerque, NM. Clear deep golden color with a small foamy white head. Citrusy and piney hops, mild bitterness, dryness, some lemon and malt in the aroma. The flavor is resiny, citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness, lemony bitterness, mild sweetness and malt. Balanced and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer to bring back from a trip to northern New Mexico. Pour most of the 16 oz. can into a chilled tall mug, see a nice orangey yellow body with enough head to keep track of the sips. Hoppy of course, it is an IPA, but nicely done, not knock you down. I detect the lemon, the grass and a bit of sweetness at the end. The taste lingers and that is good. Should be the first beer of a session before you move on to lesser brews, must make the four packs last.

SHIG (4675) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Can: Poured a coppery with a tinge off white head. Aroma was super hoppy citrus and dank. Taste is nice rounded flavorful hops, with a balanced malt backbone. Finally ticked this one and wasn’t disappointed!

Draft at Crowne Plaza ABQ. Aroma is a little piney. Orangish amber color with a white head, good lacing. Smooth taste, but I was exciting a little more flavor...it was a bit subdued. Med bodied. Overall, a good IPA, but nothing that stood out.

Tap at Falling Rock. Bright orange-amber with lace. Piny, caramel, some orange, resins, citrus. Pretty full flavors and a bit old-school. Not too sweet, restrained caramel. Good, but not quite what I was hoping to find.

Mep3222 (1285) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Great mango hop aroma and flavor. Nice malt balance. Finishes with some piney bitter hops, but overall a very flavorful tropical hoppy IPA. Real nice. Clear filtered IPA that is on the amber side. Great balance and the aroma is just fantastic. On the Russian River pliney level. Different, but that well made... Or at least real close. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Falling Rock Tap Room. Pours amber with a foamy clingng white head and a magnificent toffee and citrus aroma. There is a full-bodied mixd malt flavor with rather dank tasty bitter finish. An excellent brew.
