Bomber. Grapefruit hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit, floral and pine hop bitterness. Pours golden colored with one finger of soapy white head with excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with grapefruit and tropical fruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with dank floral and pine resiny hop flavors with citrus acidity. Nice IPA.

Bomber. Pours golden orangish with off white head. Aroma is dank and fruity mango. Taste is sweet piney hops with a piney dank finish. It’s pretty good but for the price point i’ve had many better IPAs.

How can any beer be bad that was given out of kindness? I have never had La Cumbre Brewing and was recently given an opportunity to try numerous examples...this is one of them. - Project Dank, once opened, has an intriguing aroma...garlic in addition to the blast of pine and citrus. The idea that I should have a sandwich alongside this brew is overwhelming. - The first sip is as fascinating as the aroma; garlic and pine resin is predominant in the beginning, and a breath of passion fruit and geraniums glide effortlessly in the exhale. A complicated IPA? Definitely not the ordinary! There is so little bite in the taste and yet the sting on my gums is stunning and delightful. Warm and earthy, floral and summery, this is relishable on so many levels. - The stickiness on my lips graduates with each quaff, the resin almost pitchy. The moderately viscous body is a dark, ruddy amber capped with a soft, dense off-white foam that, if I was an immoderate drinker, could easily give me a "milk moustache"; but I’d hate to waste. What a fine experience. - Most assuredly, I’d define this as an excellent IPA, buy it as often as possible, and share it with as many as I could. Different is good, but the quality in this defines it. I’m glad New Mexico is keeping the faith, but I know I must be missing out because I’m not living there.

Hazy copper color with an off-white head. Really fresh hop aroma, concentrated, floral, grassy, like opening a bag of hops. Flavors follow the aroma on the palate, not quite a bold/fresh as the aroma. Balanced bitterness, appropriate caramel malt to balance things out. Well-integrated. Hops fade gradually on the finish. Nice beer that stands out for the style.

Bottle share. Silky smooth, super hoppy aroma and taste, mildly viscous, light on presentation but huge on taste. Just great.

I wasn’t quite as big of a fan of the most recent tapping I had, but Project Dank is reliably REALLY good.
