OK, I confess the numbers are meaningless here. Itís one of the beers I drank during my family reunion in Santa Fe, but I donít really recall it and my notes arenít quite helpful. Yet I wanted to include it in my list. Iíll remember it next time!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a pretty good standard IPA. The hops are there but quite a bit of caramelly malts as well. I enjoyed it.

Golden with a white head. The aroma is full of floral hops with some biscuit malt notes. Flavor is more of the same. I get some lighter biscuit and pale malts, as well as some floral and perfume-like hops. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ the Great Best Western Las Cruces tasting of 2013 with yarn connoisseur, Rachel. Pours a bit hazy, burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, somewhat resiny, grapefruity hoppy, light cat pee, toasty malty aroma. Tangy, spicy, a bit peppery, piney, grapefruity hoppy flavor. A bit over the top but not bad.

Pours a nice cloudy honey color in the glass. Nice sweet citrus and banana aroma. Muted piney bitter flavor with a slight bitter citrus tang at the end. Overall, a drinkable brew but not too complex.

Draft at ABQ brewpub. Pours yellow with a thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Slight floral note on the nose. It does coat the tongue. Slight hop flavor with a touch of bitterness. Meh!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to knm for the bottle
A: Pours a slightly hazed caramel color with a small sopay cap, retention is decent
S: mellow nose, piny and resinous, caramel malts, and earthy yeast. Pretty malt forward, kind of grassy
T: interesting flavor..not really what you would expect from an IPA, but more pale ale like. Lots of malts, caramel, grassy and herbal hops. Bitterness is lower than normal
MF/D: Medium body, herbal/vegetal finish, carbonation is nice. Pretty drinkable but not really typical of the style
