UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma is a bit odd -- lots of grassy hops, kinda smells like onion grass mixed with a sweaty gym bag. It gets better once you get used to the oddness. Flavor is pretty similar with the same onion grass/sweat qualities, plus some hop resins and a solid caramel malt base. Bitter finish. Took a little while to warm up to but by the end it was quite enjoyable. Great IIPA! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

Update 7/30/2011: Had on tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange red with a thick white head. Aroma of lots of sweaty, piney, and grassy hops. Flavor of lots of caramel malts, bitter hops, and some sweaty hops. Solid malt backbone, overall the beer is fairly malty. Hmm, looks like my ratings from both tap and bottle are nearly identical! 8/4/8/4/14 [3.8/5]

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2010
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!

Terminus (3249) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 26, 2010
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!

nearbeer (3745) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Bomber dated 10-06-10. Hazy, burnt orange with a lasting cap of cream. Nose of orange blossom honey, fresh grain, and juicy citrus. Light-medium body is a bit too watery, but smoothly carbonated and well-dried by the hops. Flavor is resin, grapefruit, Honey-nut Cheerios, and some oak in the long finish.

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.

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.

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.

Orange-gold in color with a white head. Strong pine-hop aroma which translates through to the taste.
