phaleslu (6497) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2010
First New Mexico brew, and its 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!

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
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.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark orange red with thin lasting off white head, pretty hazy. Aroma brought notes of big juicy citrus with orange, grapefruit, some lemon, hints of pine, grass, slight caramel, touch of dank in there as well, nice smelling. Taste is a mix of sweet orange marmalade, grapefruit, lemon, nice orange peel as well, some spice, grass in there goes into some nice caramel, toffee, finishing bitter, a bit more hops. Tasty, nothing crazy, but well executed. A little syrupy on the mouthfeel but not bad.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, orange amber pour with thin but lasting white head, aroma has notes of aged earth, caramel, hints of sweet candied orange, pineapple, resinous pine, slight grapefruit notes as well. Taste is orange peel grapefruit, big pineapple, slight mango, hints of aged hops with some caramel, toffee, biscuit, hints of pine and resinous notes, finishing fairly bitter with some sweet notes. At this point more of a barleywine, but wish I could have had it fresh it tastes like it was very good.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellowish-gold color with a white head. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of pine, oranges and papaya. An extremely fruity smelling Double IPA. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma. The flavor is just as nice. I get quite a bit of resinous pine, which mixes nicely with tropical fruit such as pineapple and papaya. The bitterness level is about medium. A very easy drinking Double IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(Growler thanks to jyoungsbcp) bright gold with no head. Nose is dank, grapefruit, orange, citrus rind, light lime, and a bit of alcohol. Taste of bitter citrus rind, grapefruit, not super balanced, very bitter finish, and uncarbonated for the most part.

alexsdad06 (5408) - Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Draft (from notes). Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is big citrus hops that remind me of mandarin oranges. The flavor has the big citrus component as well with enough sweeter caramel malt to add balance. Very drinkable, more like an IPA than a double. Overall, pretty nice.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap. 24K gold color with nice lacing. Chewy aroma smells big with piney hop. Big juicy body carries the hop well, which remains in the pine pocket. One of the better ones in the lineup.

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.

Orange/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Large resiny/citrus and sweet malt aroma. Sweet caramel, grapefruit, and bread. Nice citrus bitter. Medium full bodied with good carbonation.. Very nice beer.
