COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like a jackrabbit on the run, hops are literally leaping out of this deep golden brew. The aroma of Columbus, Horizon, Crystal, and Centennial hop varieties strikes you first with notes of evergreen and grapefruit before evolving into a snappy and sharp hop flavor. The finish is very dry and calls you back for more. Yes, there is some malt here too, but mainly in a supportive role. This is one for the hopheads. Cheers!

Excellent local IPA. Has improved tremendously now that it is no longer filtered. Because of that it is very hazy, but nothing to hold against. Bitterness is crisp and lasting, aroma is beautifull, but could remain dry hopped a little longer to increase aroma intensity. All in all this is really becoming a great IPA. Can’t wait until the Marble brewery opens and I can get this ina six pack.

Draught at Blue Corn Brewery Micro Bar, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Foamy off-white head, hazy deep orange beer. Mild aroma, tones of hops and oranges. Lots of hops in the flavor but also a nice fruity base. Very fresh with a nice dry end. A really flavorfull and delicious IPA with an almost perfect balanced bitterness.

Light, slightly hazy copper color with a loose lacey head. Really nice fresh vegetal hops aroma with lots of resin. Great crisp bitterness with citrus notes--grapefruit--very light malt characteristics which compliments the powerful hops profile nicely. Very fresh mouth-coating hops oils in the body with light alcohol and a pleasant finish.

I was pretty happy with this. Aroma is very fresh, lots of pine and citrus. Pours with an orange tint to it. Flavor was nice, hoppy but smooth and never difficult. Nice to have a good local IPA.

Ok, this was had draft at the brewpub. Pour out a deep orange with a fairly thick light orange head. When I put my nose to the glass all I smelled was straight up citrus! Tart grapefruit and sweet oranges hit my nostrils, this stuff smells great. The taste is a thing of beauty as well, again, tangy grapefruit mixes with a touch of sweetness to start off the beer. Then, a hit of pine resin before leading into a bittering finish. This was very well done!

Draught: This poured a light amber with a white head. The aroma opened my sences to the hops. The flavor was on point as far as an IPA, it slapped my tongue around with hops and begged me to drink more. It had just enough malt to make it a rounded beer. A beer like this makes me want to re-evaluate my taste for IPA.

Draught @ Chama River. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a medium white head. The aroma had a mild malt presence, but was more about the hops. Grapefruit, citrus, and a touch of pine abound. The flavor was a balanced version of the nose. Moderately sweet caramel/crystal malt mixes nicely with the citrus, grapefruit, and grassy hops. Finish is nicely bitter. One of the many solid offerings we enjoyed here at Chama River.

This is a great IPA. You get hit from both sides of the hops. First its fruity and pine..then its straight bitter, It goes great with their burger (green chilies and apple wood bacon)

Draft at the brewpub, except it was called "Jackelope". Nice grapefruit, resin, and caramel aroma. Flavor is the same great mix. Light-medium body is very sessionable, lightly astringent and smoothly carbonated. Great session IPA.

Draught at the Charma River (formerly Blue Corn) Micro Bar, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hazy orange with nice white head. Very hoppy flavour, nicely dry finish. Very drinkable and refreshing.
