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!

This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz can. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy, piney and a little earthy. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity, bready and sweet. The hops are mostly citrusy and piney, but there is some earthiness as well. Good carbonation. Nice balance, but there are a whole lot of hops in this one. Medium bitterness, but some nice malts as well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is mostly bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 A decent IPA out of a can. Had a nice citrus aroma. It had a good pine/citrus taste. After filling my mouth with a good amount of the IPA, it tasted a little watered down when it came to the hops. Happy Camper seemed more like a Pale Ale than an IPA. It had a nice price. I would try it again.

"Above average ipa, aromatic and flavorful, with big notes of pine and citrus (mainly orange and grapefruit). The malt used isn’t really anything special, and that makes this a good ipa instead of a great one."

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 ][ 12oz x 2 ][ Various Santa Fe Bars ][ $5 ][ Conical Pint ][ 9.5.14 ]
>> Awesome packaging. Hazy orange golden pour with large yellowish foam with great rocky retention and swathes of thicker lace. Nose is soy, muted, bitter lemon, orange peel. Taste is denser bodied, chewy, caramel, pine resin, orange peel. Quite bitter with sharp nutty bite and orange peel. As it warms, it gains some gristy notes in nose and taste.

Brentv (399) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2014
From can. This beer pours a hazy orange with a medium white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste is the same, bitter with good malty character. Not sweet. Dry bitter finish.

A very nice session. IPA that delivers nice hops with a nice malt back bone.

On draft. Pours orange with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is lacking, but nice flavor of citrus and pine. Also a subtle maltiness that reminds me of honey. Nicely balanced with a slight dry bitter finish. Decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!
