22 ounce bottle shared by my good friend John. Thanks for bringing this back and sharing it with me! My first New Mexico beer. Bottled on 3/13/11 and tasted in late July. Lots of orange and mandarin citrus hops present to begin with--fairly pleasant and nicely quaffable. Mildly hazy golden body with a medium strong off-yellow head present. Starts chewy with citrus orange, and some mildly hemp-like hoppiness. Lightly astringent in the middle. Finishes dry with some pine hops present. A good deal of "C" hops are here. Not too shabby, but it does seem a bit one-dimensional for my tastes. I imagine this beer is pretty killer if it is fresher.

Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours clear golden with a rich off-white head and a sweet piney aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor, fairly sweet with a smooth transition to hoppy bitterness.

Bomber. Poured cloudy (suprisingly)...cleared some with some time. Good carbonation and a medium head. Pleasant sweet floral and honey nose. Nice medium body and deep gold orange color. Good bitterness upfront-not a hop bomb-and a clean malty backbone with a sweet finish. Great balance. Would definitely get again (next time I’m back in NM...).

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Big hop aroma. Clear golden coloured and extremely hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a very bitter malt finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
from the cask at papago 7/28/10. clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head. it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel. the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish. the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6

Composite review of tap and bottle samples. Currently the 22 oz. bottle is in front of me. Pour: clear golden body with large white head. Aroma: orange and grapefruit, caramel. Taste: quite hoppy without being very bitter, full of smooth and resinous hops qualities, plenty of juicy citrus, not many malt characteristics other than white-bread sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Aftertaste: more hops bitterness. Mouthfeel: a bit thin for the style, yet succulent. Overall: a DIPA that provides complex layers of hops characteristics, avoiding explosive bitterness in favor of a more deep and subtle experience. It gets better and better as you drink it.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
GABF 2010. Pours a clear bright orange with a thin lasting head. Aroma is big dank weedy hops with a more floral light tone with pear juice, lemon and orance citrus zest and a medium caramel toasty malt backbone. Flavor is light sweetness, honey, caramel, toast, then grassy hops, herbal floral then pear and weedy dankness. Clean and nice bitter finish. Pretty good.
