Awsome beer! Have it every time I visit family in the Las Cruces/El Paso area and bring some back with me to San Diego. Perfect balance of bitterness and malty sweetness. Hints of choclate add another layer of complexity. Aroma is definetely IPAish, floral, citrussy. Need a keg of this beer. kptron (18) - Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2012
Up front sweet hop nose, blended with carmel-y notes. Dark ruby red, with light head. Medium earthy sweetness, rounded out by a nice piney hop bite. Lively and dry on the palate. A damb fine red ale! This rivals Odel’s Red. MHOSKINS (83) - Cleveland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Marble is simply a great brewery! Red is there flagship offering on my opinion. Great Hop flavor. Easy to enjoy.

Wow! Great hoppyness right away on the nose. I also get caramel and almost a spice of some sort. Perfect carbonation for me, medium. Marble does it once again! rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Poures a slightly hazy deep red with a thick one finger off-white head. Great head retention and lacing.
Piney hops dominate the smell but that is quickly followed by some toasted malt and hints of chocolate. A really unique smell and great balance of hops and malt.
The flavor, like the smell, begins with a piney hop flavor being dominant. This is quickly followed by toasted caramel malt and some dark chocolate. The hops are still there throughout and lead to a mild bitterness lasting through the finish.
This beer is a wonderful balance of hops and malt. A unique flavor for a red ale, it is truly a one of a kind beer and an amazing one at that. Glad I am able to get it locally.

Bottle- Nice red pour with a pillowy tan head. Smells of caramel and citrus. Tastes of Sweet malts and hops. Very balanced and tasty. Good beer.

Really great aroma right out of the bottle. Nice head and beautiful red color. The hops hit you right upfront and keep you coming back for more. mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Let’s be clear; this is a red IPA. I know, it’s not pale so, IRA? Really nice clean reddish-brown color. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with only a little onion. Much better carmel malt characteristics than most. Wonderful hop flowery flavors and bitter finish with more pine resin. There’s really no such thing as a ’red ale" style. Even so, this is the best Red Ale I’ve had. Terminus (3702) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2010
bottle on numerous occasions over the past few months. Man, this could be the best beer brewed in this state! Unfortunately, its only available in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area, but i stock up when im up that way. this awesome beer pours a nice mahogony red hue with a small off-white fluffy head. Nose is huge hops-floral, piney, citric and something that i havent pinpointed yet, but its a characteristic of this fine brewery (another Ted Rice recipe). flavors are really balanced with sticky hops-piney with a nice sweet backbone that is really well balanced. The malts here are not over heavy-just perfect balance. This is one damn fine beer that I could session all the time. Palate is soft with medium carbonation-perfect! could become my favorate session beer (when i have it) A perfect example that amber/red ales dont have to be boring.
