notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Hazy amber - compact, lasting head - aroma is a mixture of toffee, earthy/woody/citric hops, light bright fruitiness - creamy texture, with soft carbonation - sturdy malt base that tastes of sweet toffee at first, but as the hops become more apparent, the malt is a bit more Biscuity - hops arrive through the middle, tasting a touch peppery, moderately citric - snappy and firm through the middle, with just a lightly sweet finish, with lingering peppery hops - a killer "amber ale," but really more like a "red IPA."

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 40į. Color is a hazy amber with good carbonation and a thick tight off white head. Aroma is a fruity citrus hop scent. It has a medium body that goes down with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor has a sweet fruity feel, then roasted malt, toffee, a hint of pepper and ends with citrus hop spice giving off a mild bitterness. In the after taste the citrus stand out a little more, a bit of pine shows and the bitterness holds on. Overall its a good Amber, a lot hoppier then most.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, creamy, light brown, fully lasting. Body is dark amber/red. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation. This would score higher if not for personal preferences...itís not really flawed, per se, itís just not the sort of execution I like. First issue is the hop odor...just not a fan of that rough resinous-grapefruit rind treatment. Just too reminiscent of floor polish etc. Likewise, in the mouth itís rather citric/acidic, which Iím not a fan of, even though itís overall well-balanced. But itís clean, looks great, and has a nice mouthfeel. This is the sort of beer that would score in the high 3s for me if it was simply more elegant and polished, rather than done up in the typical American rough-edged, abrasive format.

Up front sweet hop nose, blended with carmel-y notes. Dark ruby red, with light head. Medium earthy sweetness, rounded out by a nice piney hop bite. Lively and dry on the palate. A damb fine red ale! This rivals Odelís Red.

strongpieman (1541) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. This is my second beer from Marble and it is very good overall. Aroma shows off hops but is softened by the malt balance. Deep amber color with a little red, nice head, a little cloudy. Full flavored with no problems. Very well done for this style.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber. Little head. Aromas of malt, hops, candied sugar and a touch of alcohol. Initial taste is malty, smooth a crisp. Has a nice hop bitterness. Almost a rye-esque flavor. Usually not a big fan of reds but this one is quite delicious. If you can find it...try it.

rangerred (956) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Poures a slightly hazy deep red with a thick one finger off-white head. Great head retention and lacing. Piney hops dominate the smell but that is quickly followed by some toasted malt and hints of chocolate. A really unique smell and great balance of hops and malt. The flavor, like the smell, begins with a piney hop flavor being dominant. This is quickly followed by toasted caramel malt and some dark chocolate. The hops are still there throughout and lead to a mild bitterness lasting through the finish. This beer is a wonderful balance of hops and malt. A unique flavor for a red ale, it is truly a one of a kind beer and an amazing one at that. Glad I am able to get it locally.

freeofthoughts (668) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Pours copper red with eggshell head. Smells is oily grapefruit with an ipa familiarity. The taste is smooth and full, both a bit oily and grainy. Floral and grapefruit hops are the strong point but it doesnít finish dry. There is a bit of medicinal taste but it is still enjoyable.

Awsome beer! Have it every time I visit family in the Las Cruces/El Paso area and bring some back with me to San Diego. Perfect balance of bitterness and malty sweetness. Hints of choclate add another layer of complexity. Aroma is definetely IPAish, floral, citrussy. Need a keg of this beer.

dnstone (2165) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Red-amber in color with a soft off-white head. Excellent hoppy-piney aroma. Very IPA-esque with a nice malt body underneath.
