1 Pint 6 oz. Bottle. Pours Amber and hazy with little to no froth. The taste is a fine twist of hops and citrus flavors. It’s lively, bitterness and long lasting sweetness. Excellent blend of flavor and alcohol content. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 23, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Tap @ brewery. Pours a hazy, deep orange color with a nice sharp aroma of grapefruit hops. Stewed apricot and dried mango on the palate with sharp citrus hops and perfect CO2 level. Long, lingering finish that hides its ABV beautifully. A very well-balanced beer! mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Yellow-orange, a bit hazy, nice lace on the side of the glass as the foam recedes. Inviting aromas, mostly citrus, some perfume/floral. Bracing bitterness up front, a hint of carmel malts, then a battering of bitter follows through. Lingering resins in the luxurious finish, like toffee covered in pine sap. Ten, even five, years ago, this would have been an incredible revelation, now it’s just an average DIPA. If there is an "average" DIPA. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Tap at the brewery. This was effing solid, just like their single IPA. Nose of orange peel, malt, resin and dank hops. Flavor very much the same - a perfect bitter twang where the hops overbalance the malts just so. Fragrant and refreshing. Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - APR 16, 2010
From very fresh keg just brought home from Marble Brewery. Pours a slightly hazed orange with thick head. Incredibly pungent hop aroma emanates from this beer with strong notes of citrus. The taste follows the smell, the hop bite is as intense as they come with little malt. When i say the hop bite is intense i mean INTENSE, so strong it would put off anyone who doesn’t love hops, but this is partially accountable to the freshness of the keg. Body is medium light, bitterness subsides quite well and doesn’t stick considering how strong it initially is. Personally, I love it. Rock solid!

Transparent golden color. Bold, fragrant hops with fruit and resin notes. Great bitterness on the palate but not in any way out of balance. Highly recommended for fans of the IIPA. openbottle (19) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Great double ipa. Mild malt backbone with piny hops. Tasted on tap at marble brewery ABQ.

Picked it up at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque, N.M. Poured from a bottle into a small glass (maybe eight ounces) that I had in the hotel room in Albuquerque, N.M. on April 20. About two fingers of head. Color was a hazier version of the regular IPA and more orangish. Cloudy, pillowy lacing on the top. Tons of film on the side of the glass. Wet, cobwebby.
Good-smelling beer. Got the citrus hope I was expecting, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Good balance of lemon, tangerine and grapefruit (but once again, not overpowering). Light smell of caramel. Bitter notes on the nose after awhile.
The taste certainly didn’t disappoint, In fact, it reminded me a bit of the Firestone Double Jack. Just a nice smooth taste of hops and caramel, carefully balancing each other out.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy finish. Average carbonation. Long-lasting, smooth finish, just a small note that it is strong.
Really, really enjoyed this beer. You’re going to get drunk, but you may not notice it right away. To me it still seems close to Firestone’s Double Jack. Just a good Double IPA. NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pint at Marble tap room in Sante Fe. Their IPA is amazing so my hopes were high for this. It did not disappoint. Super clean resinous hop aroma with inoffensive malts. The palate is perfect for the style. Bitter citrus and pine make up the flavor. It’s very textbook IIPA but delicious and well crafted. I am a fan! brokephibroke (315) - Mead, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
A big beer. A little more copper than gold, but still a beautiful pour. A piney hop, with a great bitter linger. Kick this guy up in ABV and it would be world class.
