Great beer with an amazing aroma that I detect strong fruity smell, floral, stone fruit. When you take a sip you immediately get the resin, citrus, grapefruit. Very nice beer.

Outstanding! Just a pleasure from beginning to end. Gorgeous amber/red color with cobwebby lacing. The nose is rich and malty with a nice resinous and floral hop scent. The flavor is massive. Bitter right up front but quickly turns into velvet...almost buttery. Then the hops take over at the end. Easily one of the best beers I've had in a while. I'd come to Albuquerque just to drink this again. Good thing Marble fills growlers from other breweries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clearish dark amber with a generously foamy off-beige head. The nose is exactly all that I am looking for in a double red: loads of caramel, loads of floral hops, resin, and grapefruit zest juiciness. The flavor is nice and malty with a strong malt-booze backbone. There’s a rush of caramel and grapefruit rind & zest right off the bat, which blends into a floral and piney resin tone, with a semi-sweet citrus sweetness that’s also a touch peachy and bready. Very big bodied, with a lot of stickiness in both hop and malt tones. It’s very well done, but it’s basically the same as Oskar Blues G’knight, so I’m giving it the exact same scoring. And G’knight is cheaper and in 12oz cans...

Ap - 4 - This is a reddish brown clear beer that has an off white head that leave nice lacing. Ar - 8 - Nice caramel malts balanced by piney, citrusy hops. Very sweet smelling. Great Imperial Red aroma. Reminds me of G’Knight. T - 9 - Oh man, this one is good. The citrusy, orange zest, grapefruit hops start, with nice sweet caramel malt in the middle and piney, citrusy, bitter grapefruit on the back of the tongue at the finish. M - 4 - Medium-heavy, full bodied. Alc covered well. Aftertaste is bitter grapefruit and sweet malt. O - 17/20 - What can I say, this is a great beer. It’s about the same price/oz as OB G’knight, and honestly, I’d have to have them side by side to figure out the subtle differences between the two. Great imperial red. I’m glad I had it. ’

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 16, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Whole Foods Albuquerque. Pours a sinister dark red, mostly opaque, with a thin off-white head. Aroma is hoppy pine and resin, with hints of dark chocolate, spices, and alcohol. Smells quite decadent. Taste is smooth and succulent, leaning hard toward hops bitterness yet balanced by deep layers of malt sweetness. This brew is strong. It clings to the tongue and provides a long aftertaste of bitterness, complimented by a subtle alcohol burn. Very good for sipping contemplatively. Many characteristics reveal themselves over time in this complex elixir.

maltman53 (334) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 27, 2013
On tap at the brewery, extreme hoppy version of an American Red Ale. The 9% ABV is balanced and carried deftly throughout the swallow, ending with a huge drying, crisp finish. Once again Marble underscores its reputation as a "hop house" with this imperial red.

Deep red in the glass. Bold, bright citrus and resin hop aroma. Smooth, well-integrated palate. Great balance. Well done.

on tap-pours a tan head that laces and copper color. Aroma is cascade (resin/herbal), secondary medium malt-caramel. Taste is cascade hops with slight bite, resin/herbal/peat/raisin/touch of cocoa. OK carbonation.

decaturstevo (5079) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Deep amber with frothy tan head and lace. Citrus hops, sweet caramel malt. Deep toasted malt, nice resin/citrus bitter. Medium full bodied with good carbonation. A very special beer.
