Straw, clear, and big hop aroma. Flavor is assertive fruity hops with some garlic flavor, probably brought forward with the use of RO water. Very refreshing and a great session beer.

Ancient backlog, from tap. Aroma of citrus and mango on sesame and graham crackers. Flavor more prominently bitter and fruity with a gentle bed of bread. Well attenuated and very drinkable as a result. Delicate seeming.

This was the best IPA of New Mexico. The second floor taproom on the Plaza is a busy place. The view of the plaza is special. The beer was also very good. Mac the bartender helped me select beers to enjoy as ai approach 500. This is a smooth full bodied IPA. It is their flagship ale. It had a blend of hops that were special. The
