Letís be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, itís not pale so, IRA? Really nice clean reddish-brown color. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with only a little onion. Much better carmel malt characteristics than most. Wonderful hop flowery flavors and bitter finish with more pine resin. Thereís really no such thing as a íred ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale Iíve had.

Btl pours hazy,ruby red color with a big fluffy off white head that lingers leaving lots of pace on glass. Aromas of pine,citrus, pie crust, and brown sugar. Tastes of cookie dough, grapefruit,resin, tree sap, and Medium body, silky mouthfeel, above average carbonation, and a smooth slightly bitter finish. I never really enjoyed reds until I tried this one. Truly an amazing beer. Perfectly balanced between malt and hops, make this very enjoyable. The fresh hops really come through in both aroma and taste. This is now one of my favorite local brews. Yeah my opinion is biased, so what!

Bottle to glass. Pours a nice amber, light reddish color, with an off white head. Wonderful hop character, piney, citrus, on top off a toasty amber malt backbone. Another solid Marble beer.

Bottle picked up in Las Cruces at Kelly Liquors. Straight from the bottle after a hot, windy, dry run. Huge aroma of sappy, resiny pine with a hint of sweet malt. Nice mildly bitter flavor that keeps it a nice amber ale and not over-the-top into IPA-land. Nice and refreshing.

Bottle from local Smithís. Wow! Not what I was expecting at all. Pronounced hop profile announced itself as soon as the cap came off. Dark copper pour, medium off-white head, and moderate carbonation. Caramel malts are pretty much buried under a very dry, IPA-ish hop profile. Itís labeled as a red ale rather than an amber, but it tastes like a red IPA to me, which ainít a bad thing as far as Iím concerned. A pleasant surprise. Iíll definitely be buying more of this.

Nothing to write home about. A bit of a sweet and bitter initial taste that complimented the local cuisine.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with a very small off-white head on there. Nose is quite hoppy... there is some caramel to it, but a lot of grass and some floral notes to it. Taste is slightly bitter, and comes with a malty bite that has a residual sweetness. Really interesting...

Draft at the taproom in Santa Fe.

Deep orange-brown pour with a modest head. Nose brings some of the metallics that previous raters were glad not to detect, along with spicy pine. The flavor is a very fine balance of c-hop drive with sweetish caramel malt backing. Prickly mouthfeel from the abundant carbonation. This (hoppy American red ale) is not a style that I tend to enjoy, but I rather enjoyed this one. It has to be once of the nicest red ales Iíve had.
