Pours a holden color with a good white head with some staying power. Great aroma. The flavor is fantastic, lots of hops, but not overly hopped like some DIPA. Just enough malt to give you a hint of it without taking away from the star, which is the hops. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap a few times and a few bottles as well-composite rating over the past few months. copper/orange hue with a nice froathy white head. floral, citrus, tropical nose-in the bottles its a bit more piney i noticed. i had it once on tap at the santa fe location and it was way more floral. Then, this sample i had at the brewpub was a bit more harsh/dirty hops. the tap version i had at the brewery seemed a bit off from the samples i have had before-the finish didnt come together very well-really maltless and had lack of depth whereas the balance was a bit better on the bottle and the tap from santa fe back around new years. A decent DIPA that seems to change from place to place. However, for NM, this is the best we have!

First New Mexico brew, and it’s a good one. 22 oz. bottle from erway- thanks again, Jeff! Pours a clear copper color with a big, frothy off-white head that leaves plenty of soapy lacing in the glass. Aroma of herbal hops, pine, caramel malts, grapefruit citrus, and some floral notes. Flavor of pine resin, floral and herbal hops, tea, caramel malts, and grapefruit. Light-medium bodied, with sharp carbonation and a leafy, malty mouthfeel and bitter aftertaste. Very nice DIPA!

Bottle from bleeng.
Pours a decent cheddar orange with an aroma of slight pine sap immersed in grapefruit juice. Flavor is pine grapefruit and citrus rind. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to my cousin Linda. Deep gold, slightly hazy with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet, resiny, fruity nose. Taste of the same with alcohol very evident. Very carbonated with some nose bubbles. Medium palate. Very drinkable and well done.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh, this is a pretty standard dipa for me - clear golden pour - thick, lasting head - fresh, peppery, herbal, minty hop aroma start things off on a positive note - the flavor doesn’t live up to this - it might not be as sweet as some dipas, but it is still fairly sweet for my taste, especially in the finish - bitter but not abrasive - decent earth hop flavor - not too bad, but not stand out - a bit of a let down, since I thought their regular ipa was fantastic.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ancient backlog, from tap. Aroma of resin, flowers, pollen, citrus. Flavor again very resinous with big sweet malts as well as lemon and marmalade. Not too sweet for a DIPA when all is said and done. Gets a bit grassy as it goes. Still quite solid.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From very fresh keg just brought home from Marble Brewery. Pours a slightly hazed orange with thick head. Incredibly pungent hop aroma emanates from this beer with strong notes of citrus. The taste follows the smell, the hop bite is as intense as they come with little malt. When i say the hop bite is intense i mean INTENSE, so strong it would put off anyone who doesn’t love hops, but this is partially accountable to the freshness of the keg. Body is medium light, bitterness subsides quite well and doesn’t stick considering how strong it initially is. Personally, I love it. Rock solid!
