look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Cloudy orange with nice thick white head and good lacing. Outstanding carbonation.

Smell: citrusy-pine hops

Taste: Pine hops with citrus/grapefruit and really good. It tastes great. I've never had a piney beer this great before. Excellent blend of hops.

An excellent ipa that totally satisfies the need for the hop. A class by itself.

A- pours a orange-golden hue with a small finger-sized head that fades quickly. Nice clarity in this beer and big laciness.
S- get a big blast of the "C" hops. Citra coming through the most. Some floral presence comes through along with a grassy aroma.
T- big blast of citrus! Not overly bitter, no much malt presence.
M- lighter side of medium with a sharpness to it.
O- really sweet beer acquired via trade. Exceeded expectations.

Poured into a canned shape glass from the new 12 ounce can.

Starts with a light and wispy, yet substantial pale white head. The body is a golden and amber blend with crystal clarity. 4.5

I've probably neglected this beer but I don't remember it smelling this good. Potent floral bouquet, orange peel and a caramel-like undercurrent. Fruit seems to dodge in and out. 4.25

Tastes oily and resinous with the subtle taste of weed, flowers, and caramel malts. 4

Thick-bodied and creamy before a dry and bitter finish, there's a great balance achieved here. It drinks clean and is very sippable with a kiss of sweetness that I enjoy. 4.25

An excellent staple from Marble I should visit more frequently.

A - Golden brown with a half inch white head.

S - Hops all the way.

T - Hops once again. This is amazing. It is all about the hops. None of the side nonsense. This is what I think a solid ipa should be all about.

M - Nice medium carbonation. Very clean and crisp.

O - No complaints here. All around a great ipa.

Canned on 29th March 2015, purchased at Tin Bucket.

A mildly hazy orange with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose opens with a plenty of fruit - citrus, tropical fruit, a little bit of stone fruit - as well as a mild bitterness. As with their pils that I had last night,there's a slight soapiness to the nose. The hops, though, are glorious - bright, fragrant, refreshing. Just a little bit of malt is present, lending a sweetness that complements the fruit.

The palate opens with a full, juicy, hoppy fruitiness, nectar-like and downright quaffable. Light citrus, white peach, mango and a little bit of grape are all present in great harmony. Mildly floral (from the Centennial?)as well. The mid-palate has a little bit of malt, a cotton candy like sweetness. A touch of soap is present as well. Drying on the finish with a moder ate bitterness, pleasant and clean, this beer is light in body, moderately carbonated and is very, very good, even despite the soapiness.

Thanks to TheDankOne for hooking me up with this bottle.

A - Pouring into a pint glass produces a half inch of sticky white head. The head retention is excellent and leaves generous lacing on the inside of the glass. The beer is clear and golden with orange highlights.

S - The nose is nice and hop forward. There is juicy citrus and tropical notes throughout. In addition there is a light caramel aroma.

M - Light to medium in body with active carbonation. Slightly resinous and dry.

T - Wow, this beer produces an amazing tropical flavor profile. There is pineapple, mango and citrus present. There's a small amount of grapefruit in the finish with a fairly low bitterness thanks to the complementing caramel malt backbone.

This beer is so refreshing and well balanced that I wish it was distributed in my neck of the woods. It's an outstanding IPA and could easily hang out with the other awesome IPAs that are out there. This beer has inspired me to look into creating an IPA with Columbus, Centennial, and Amarillo hops.

I am really surprised by this beer. I was expecting an average ipa but this hit a home run. Marble IPA is a great ipa that is superbly balanced. Get this if you can. I wish I could.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruits and bready malts with some resiny hops.

The flavor is bready malts and sweet fruits with a big resiny hop finish with quite a bit of lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, I like this IPA and have liked a lot of Marble's beers. It's a good mix of fruits, and resiny bitterness.

Tonight I am comparing several different IPA's that are all poured from a can. In addition to this one, I am tasting Ska Brewing's Modus Hoperendi IPA, Anderson Valley Hop Ottin' IPA and Santa Fe Brewing Happy Camper IPA.

This beer poured from a can into a large tulip glass is cloudier than any of the other 3, and has a very minimal head. The aroma is nice citrus and floral, but it doesn't translate directly to the palate. This is a bitter IPA with a sort of sour aftertaste.... Not terribly impressed. Reading thru some of the other reviews on BA, I wonder if I am drinking something past it's "drink by" date.

Light amberish and dark yellow color beer, 1"+ head, average lacing and retention. Nice color. Aroma was hoppy when fresh, rough malt prominence when aged.

Taste, solid craft ipa, better hop flavor than average. Good alcohol warmth. Moderate amount of caramel, equal parts grapefruit and pine. Average malt sweetness from it. Not super hefty. Bitterness is moderate. A pretty decent and straightforward ipa, there isn't much in the way of complexity, but its not a style that demands it. Its solid B grade, second tier stuff. I'd be a repeat purchaser if it was in my area for $7.99

The first time I had this was like a 6 month old bottle my brother sat on forever as part of our trade.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a deep coppery yellow clear body with a good carbonation of tiny bubbles and a thick white spongy head that turns to a thick meniscus and last for the full beer. There are thick clouds of foam that stick as registry marks on the glass after each sip.

S- Big juicy green hops with a pine and citrus aroma have a faint bitter note in the finish. The hops come through even during the pour.

T- Fresh juicy green hops taste with a slight sweet malty taste behind it. There is some bold pine flavors with some limy citrus flavors and a light cat pee flavor (which is a tasty thing). This beer finishes with a soft hop bitterness that lingers just briefly after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight little fizz and no alcohol heat at all.

D- This beer has wonderful fresh bold hops that are well supported by a sweet malt base and bitterness. This beer has one of the best hops flavors and aromas while still being very drinkable and it was a nice session beer. The hop bitterness takes a bit of a step forward as the beer warms but it is always in check. I drank one of these following a nice greasy Monte Cristo sandwich and thought I was in heaven.

Poured a pretty golden, with a tiny bit of head. It looks like what I look for in an IPA. Scents of pine, malt and some citrus. Flavor begins with malt sweetness and moves into pine, slight floral and some grapefruit, finishes with more floral flavors and ends with an aftertaste of grapefruit pith. Quite good, very true to style and some of the better IPAs I've tasted. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, quite easy to drink and feels good on the palate. An excellent example of an American IPA out of New Mexico, worth trying to find.

A small to maybe medium sized off white head settles into a decent lacing above a clear honey golden colored beer.

Citrus and pine dominate a hoppy aroma.

Almost a bitter soapiness to a taste that is full of citrus, floral, and pine style hops.

A dryish aftertaste that has some of the bitterness left over from the taste with some slight citrus tastes coming along for the ride on this medium bodied and easy drinking beer.

I could drink a few of these, quite a few.
