COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: It has been necessary to include "(NM)" in the name to avoid confusion with a beer of the same name from Marble brewery in the UK.

Our favorite aromatic and bittering hops deliver a fragrant citrus aroma and snappy hop character to this eminently quaffable IPA.

Thanks to knm for the bottle! Wanting to try this for a while now A: Pours a slightly hazed but mostly transparent pale gold color with a big fluffy white cap. Retention is pretty good, not too much carbonation to speak of S: Very resinous and very piny hops right off the bat...its one of those IPAs that spreads across the room when opened. Light grapefruit as well. Malts are kind of present, but don’t really have any significant presence, only a faint caramel note. T: Very very resinous and piny...similar to Green Flash’s IPA, and other various West Coast offerings. Huge hop presence, not very well balanced but I’m still enjoying this one. MF/D: Bitterness leaves the mouth a little parched, definitely a palate wrecker of an IPA. Medium body, carbonation is nice...only a little rough Notes: I’ve read on the forums that this is similar to Sculpin, but I completely disagree. It’s missing the yeast in the flavor and the tropical fruits in the nose/flavor. Still an excellent beer Thanks to knm for giving me the opportunity to try this!

Pours out a amber/golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma is of light floral hops, citrus, light cardboard and caramel. Taste is caramel malts, lingering sweetness, some grass, light citrus and floral hops creeping through, would like to try a bit fresher.

12 oz bottle marked with more numbers on the bottom then a damn bingo board so I have no idea how old this one is, other then the hop free aroma and flavor that is. Thanks pineypower though for another tick. Poured a Great looking solid orange body with a larger foamy/creamy bright white head. Aroma is so muted I struggle to find anything significant, slight cereal grains and some orange notes. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a creamy full mouthfeel, finishes with a light bitter bite. Favor Of older citrus rinds, grains, toast, some older orange slices that have dried out and been sitting in the sun and air all day. I think a fresh bottle of this might be better or maybe people in New Mexico are used to mundane IPAs.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Lots of citrus/floral/pine hop notes. The malts are grainy and dry. This is a very nice IPA.

wnoble (1214) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours deep orange with a moderate frothy head. Nose is quite fragrant fruits, orange, mild flowers, and grapefruit rind hops with a large amount of bready rich malts and caramel aromas. Flavor is citrus juice, citrus zest, bread flavors with a dry finish. medium full body and sweet at first then finishes moderately dry with a mild lasting bitterness. Pretty enjoyable IPA. I’ll add that I didn’t give this a higher rating because I’m not big on the malty and caramel flavored IPAs.

douglas88 (5565) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2012
12 ounce bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a very clear copper color with a large white head. A rich raw nose of hops, some pine and bitterness. A sweet very big IPA with large resin and bitter finish, tangerines and lemon zest, very smooth. Pretty big hop flavors, especially citrus and green bitterness in the finish, but quite drinkable, not super balanced. Good.

This is the definition of an IPA. Clean, refreshing, crisp and light. Tons of piney, grape fruit hops, but not so much it turns your mouth inside out. Cant believe how overlooked this beer is. Got one as an extra in a trade and I cant wait to get my hands on more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Poured a golden, copper color with a fluffy white head, with great lacing. Smell is very pine-forward, resin, grass, and heavy weed; nice dank aroma. Taste is much the same, pine and grass, but also hints of grapefruit, citrus and light caramel. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Overall a nice dank IPA and very easy to drink; a pleasant surprise.
