This IPA is a slightly hazed amber. The off-white head is an unusual combination of fluffy and dense. It reaches a solid finger of height. Moderate retention leads to the eventuality of a strong island that leaves a ring of lace at the top of the glass and thick spotting below.
The aromas show a sort of C-hops profile, while malts add caramel sweetness and biscuit without overcoming the hops.
In the flavore it's somewhat stemmier and pithier with a chalky, slightly aspirin-like dryness along with honey-drizzled biscuit and caramel. Sweetness is set aside in the middle, where a hint of herbal leaf, dried grapefruit peel, and a ghost of mint come out.
The feel gives a solid mix of crisp and smooth with a drier middle to finish, while the end thins out very slightly.
Don't be fooled; even big breweries can make decent stuff whether craft beer hipsters like it or not. True, it rarely overwhelms, but this, at least, is solid.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy, chunk and orange/golden, with a modest white head.

Orange peel, malty sweetness without the caramel, alcohol and not much else.

Surprisingly sharp piny bitterness from the beginning right through the finish, some malty sweetness that almost balances, and some piny hop flavor.

Thin side of medium body, low to adequate carbonation, bitter finish.

Not bad. Not great either, but not bad. Considering it is from Mexico, it is surprisingly good.
