COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wiping your rear with a pine cone is about as rough as camping should get. That’s why we invented this portable IPA in a can. A hoppy, refreshing beverage that goes great with campfires, bears, granola, and mosquito repellent. Happy Camping!

Although a six pack costs $10, it is worth it. The awesome can caused me to try it, but the incredible taste keeps me buying it. Great IPA with a bit of a piney after taste.

This ones a 5 for me. Aroma is just flawless. Perfect for an IPA. It’s fruity, piney, malty it has everything going for it. The color is just gorgeous. a nice dark orange copper with a perfect head. Taste is bitter, but sort of sweet in a good way with tons of hoppy bitterness. The cascade and amarillo shine through here along with the simcoe. This is just a perfect easy drinking delicious IPA from New Mexico. Digging this, will definitely be stocking up!

Actually stopped in a store while camping and saw this beer. The aroms is sweet, but also grassy malts mixed with hops. I liked it, a lot. Orange in color. Really hit the spot at Sedona’s Slide Rock. Want more.

12 ounce can. Pours slightly cloudy orange amber color with a nice dense 2.5 finger off white head with great retention that reduces to a thick lacing cap that lasts. Some very nice lacing coats the glass as you drink as well. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel, and spice. Nice aromas with good strength, standard IPA stuff here. Taste of orange, grapefruit, pine and caramel. Big sweetness on the front with a decently strong bitterness on the finish that lasts with pine, caramel, and citrus flavor. Medium carbonation and body, very creamy and smooth as well, very drinkable. No alcohol in the taste or finish. Overall an excellent well rounded IPA. I would pick this up if it was readily available, perhaps for some camping?

12oz can. Pours a dark golden color with generous off-white head. Strong aroma of apricots. Slightly sweet with strong bitter flavor. Notes of pine are present. Full creamy mouthfeel with nice long bitter finish. Very good.

Pours pale gold orange with a medium off-white head. Smells a bit resinous and piny. Taste is bitter and hints of pine. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Santa Fe Happy Camper IPA finishes with a mild lingering bitterness.

DocJitsu (1025) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a clear copper-golden color with a large, sudsy, quickly dissipating off white head. A pungent, clean piny, citrus bouquet wafts out of the glass as the beer is being poured, even several inches away from my nose. A texture that begins wet and mildly scrubby, but becomes more powdery about midway. Wonderful flavor of 50/50 pine and grapefruit. Perfect balance of malt without asserting itself. Really good IPA.

From a can at local Smith’s. I’ve gradually gravitated to this local offering as my favorite IPA. Not as extreme as the high end west coast stuff but much more balanced. Fluffy white head on the pour revealing beautiful amber color and moderate carbonation. Piney hops nose and taste comes through loud and clear on the front and the back side balanced by a nice malty backbone and creamy texture. Not a particularly complex beer, but in the end, that’s what I like about it the most. Highly recommended!

Can from brad. Pours a clear amber with decent offwhite head. Nose is amazingly fresh green pine and pineapple citrus. Flavor is similar, and not overly bitter. Different than your typical ipa. Like licking a pinecone. Love the change of pace.
