Pours a honey orange clear color, head is 1/4th of an inch and off white. Lacing and head retention are very good. Smell is big on fruit; pineapple, mango, guava, to name a few. Getting a bit of rye malt also. A bit of sweet malt balances the bitterness. Alcohol is pretty light. Taste is spicy and bitter. Getting lots of citric acid, pineapple, and pine resin. Reminds me of pineapple sculpin but even better. Peppery aftertaste is present, alcohol is light. Mouthfeel is light bodied and highly carbonated. Head added a nice froth to the body of the beer. Ends kinda astringent. Overall this was a great Ipa, bright tropical notes mixed with acidic hops. Body and mouthfeel were spot on, would definitely buy again.

16 oz can. Pours clear copper gold with a big bubbly white head that retains well and laces the glass some

. The aroma is dank resiny piney hops with a little fruit and malt.

The flavor is tons of dank resiny piney hops hops that linger through the finish. Theres a touch of sweet fruit initially that is quickly overwhelmed. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice in your face hop bomb.

Can. Clear copper gold with a foamy, off white head that lasts mostly and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, biscuit, light tangerine, light floral and caramel notes. Flavor is the same, citrus at first, followed by pine and floral notes finished off with a biscuity, caramel malt. Medium bodied, smooth with a dry, bitter end.

Can, courtesy of mi amigo Adrian. Pours a deep, deep amber with an extremely fluffy, lacy, mixed-grained, cream-colored head. Nose is grapefruit, lime, roses, hollyhocks, fresh biscuits, and mountain pine. On the tongue -- blessed Bes, thats good. Its not often I call an IPA rich, but this one is; youve got your usual pungent, delicious resiny hops, but somehow theyre deeper and more complex than usual, balanced out by a multi-layered toffee and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is incredible; its smooth and glossy like an imperial stout. Finish is long, just a touch sweet, then hits back with powerful cleansing bitterness. One of the best IPAs Ive had in a long time, if not ever. Those New Mexico folks know their stuff. Now I want a green chile cheeseburger.

jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Aroma is sweet and light. Color is nice but a bit light, nice head. Taste isnt extremely bitter, and finish is lacking the hop bite. Drinkable.

stevoj (4297) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2016
On tap at brewery. Dont be surprised by the faint nose, big hops follow. Deep golden color, soft creamy head, some streaky lacing. Silky smooth, almost syrupy body. Hops linger...for a while. Big hoppy IPA.

Just moved to NM from WI and this absolutely blows away any IPA from my home state. Intensely bitter, but with a great citrus flavor. Since heading down here, its become my new go-to.
