3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crimson red with generous head that leaves plenty of lace. Nose has plenty of toffee and candied citrus. On the palate the toffee comes through again with passion fruit citrus to balance. Has that "juicy fruit" flavor to it. Medium to light bodied and easy drinking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Brewery. Pours a deep dark amber with medium head and lacing. A pungent grassy floral hop aroma with hints of dank malts in the background. This beer is balanced with sharp bitterness falling into the calm cleansing mellowness of the malt. Medium bodied beer that goes down quite smooth finishes with a very nice bitter malt flavor that isnt too overpowering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle on numerous occasions over the past few months. Man, this could be the best beer brewed in this state! Unfortunately, its only available in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area, but i stock up when im up that way. this awesome beer pours a nice mahogony red hue with a small off-white fluffy head. Nose is huge hops-floral, piney, citric and something that i havent pinpointed yet, but its a characteristic of this fine brewery (another Ted Rice recipe). flavors are really balanced with sticky hops-piney with a nice sweet backbone that is really well balanced. The malts here are not over heavy-just perfect balance. This is one damn fine beer that I could session all the time. Palate is soft with medium carbonation-perfect! could become my favorate session beer (when i have it) A perfect example that amber/red ales dont have to be boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle, this poured cleared orange-hued iced tea color with ample rocky foam, off-white with slight red tint. Leaves some lacing. I get a large floral and citrus presence in the aroma, along with caramel. The taste is hoppy bitterness up front, fades nicely into slight roasty bitters. Itís just sweet enough with a mild finish. Delicious and unexpected for a red ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Marble recently started bottling this one, so Iíve tried it at the pub and at home. Itís really a Red IPA, due to its great hoppiness. But letís start at the beginning... It pours with a frothy off-white head, under which a clear red-brown body glows with anticipation. The aroma is hoppy, leaning toward herb, pine, and resin smells. Minimal citrus character in the aroma. Flavor is a sophisticated balance of sweet caramel and strong hops. Once it hits your tongue, the grapefruit aspect of American hops can be detected, along with a more earthy bitterness. This brew clings to your tongue and leaves a complex aftertaste that is clean and satisfying. Good stuff.
