On tap at the brewery in Albuquerque, NM. As we prepare to drive to LA tomorrow, this serves as a reminder of how close to the west coast NM actually is. Very hoppy, true to style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Yellow-orange, a bit hazy, nice lace on the side of the glass as the foam recedes. Inviting aromas, mostly citrus, some perfume/floral. Bracing bitterness up front, a hint of carmel malts, then a battering of bitter follows through. Lingering resins in the luxurious finish, like toffee covered in pine sap. Ten, even five, years ago, this would have been an incredible revelation, now it’s just an average DIPA. If there is an "average" DIPA.

Beaver (1282) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits with a big resiny piney floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid DIPA.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy copper with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is fragrant and bountiful pine, citrus, floral, and tropical fruit hops with nicely supporting fruity esters. The malt aroma component is hidden behind the hop/ester bouquet, but presents itself as light biscuit and grain malt. Flavor is heavy upfront bitterness with huge hop notes; malt supports with help from some fruity esters. The bitterness lingers and dries out the finish, though the malt sweetness does not fade readily. Moderate to full body with medium-high carbonation.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, cream colored head. A touch spicy and earthy aroma that is far more dominated by a nice grapefruity, sappy piney hoppy smell. A bit toasty malty, light toffee, mildly bitter, grapefruit, earthy, piney hoppy flavor with some resin and booze on the finish. Pretty decent brew at $5.99/bomber.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
The pour is a clear, orangey golden color with a full, white, creamy, fluffy head which settles to a fluffy, rocky layer and leaves scattered, sporadic lace. The nose is a bit bland with pink grapefruit, black pepper, light florals, some pine, light caramelly notes, and some cracker. The flavor is similar with equal parts cracker, pepper, caramel, and resin, still some pink grapefruit, and light rustic notes. The palate is nearly full, nearly lively, oily, and velvety. The beer finishes with a moderately high bitterness, black pepper, resins, slight caramel, and some rustic lingering. Actually a decent IPA/IIPA beer; the fruity citrus and slight caramel added sweetness to the quite bitter, spicy, and resinous beer. The dryness was matched by spice and citrus to avoid any over dry beer. Not very familiar with this brewery but I like them so far.

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2012
Picked it up at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque, N.M. Poured from a bottle into a small glass (maybe eight ounces) that I had in the hotel room in Albuquerque, N.M. on April 20. About two fingers of head. Color was a hazier version of the regular IPA and more orangish. Cloudy, pillowy lacing on the top. Tons of film on the side of the glass. Wet, cobwebby. Good-smelling beer. Got the citrus hope I was expecting, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Good balance of lemon, tangerine and grapefruit (but once again, not overpowering). Light smell of caramel. Bitter notes on the nose after awhile. The taste certainly didn’t disappoint, In fact, it reminded me a bit of the Firestone Double Jack. Just a nice smooth taste of hops and caramel, carefully balancing each other out. Medium-to-light body. Creamy finish. Average carbonation. Long-lasting, smooth finish, just a small note that it is strong. Really, really enjoyed this beer. You’re going to get drunk, but you may not notice it right away. To me it still seems close to Firestone’s Double Jack. Just a good Double IPA.

Growler Fill from Brewery. A very nice DIPA. Very heavy on HOPS and not much else. Pour a nice lite color with a thin white head.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2012
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 40°. Color is a bright gold with a slight haze, good carbonation and a big rocky head. Aroma is a big citrus scent that seems to have a fruity sweetness. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is heavy citrus and pinesap with a sharp bitterness that lingers in the after taste. Overall its just too much citrus and nothing else.
