12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks, Brian! Pours a bright, semi-cloudy gold color with an inch-thick eggshell white head that leaves some heavy lacing in the glass. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, caramel malts, dry cereal grains, grapefruit peel, and sugar. Flavor of bitter piney hops, grapefruit peel, sweet and pale malts, and resin. Light-bodied, with a resinous, bitter mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Delivers a big hop punch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on February 18 2011. Sampled at UJís. This is a great looking ipa, brilliant orange in color with a great head and lacing. I am surprised at how good this smells. I wasnít expecting this kind of hop clarity. Loads of pine and citrus cut through the aroma. The flavor is excellently bitter with fresh herbs, grassiness, grapefruit and conifer. Malts are perfectly ambiguous and merely add some balance. This makes me think Two-Hearted junior.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle- Pours a inviting golden color, clear with a nice full head that fades to good lacing. Quite mild aroma of fresh grain with a trace of citrus. Starts with a bit of sweetness, then fresh grain with a good bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and clean. Very well balanced.
Very drinkable, Easy to have a few without even trying. A nice surprise from New Mexico. Came across this while working in El Paso.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange, big fluffy white head. Citrusy, lightly fruity aroma. Flavor is also citrus, like maybe a touch of grapefruit, with a bit of malty sweetness in the background. Some earthy, woody notes in there, as well. Not bad session IPA.
