4.55/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured ok with single finger head, color golden with good carbonation action.

smell is great with floral and citrus burst that tell me "this may be good"...

taste fulfils the smell with all flavors the nose decribed earlier..flowery first then citrus but finishes with slight bitterness that somehow holds the fruit for a great finish and great bitter feel

im a bigtime ipa guy and this is my first review...i had to write about this beer...its in my top 2 or 3 ipa's

must buy must try

12oz bottle stamped 12 22 11 on the bottom right edge of the label. Poured into a Harpoon IPA stange glass.

Appearance - Loose white head with fine bubbling, great retention. Patchy stick and first, but becomes regular after the first few sips.

Smell - Very delicious bright floral, grass and citrus notes. Smells utterly appetizing. Light honey biscuit malt.

Taste - Very nice balance between hop and malt. Neither are overtly bold, but they aren't mild either; they play off eachother sharing the spotlight. Grassy. Lime peel bitterness, and just the perfect amount of astringency to balance it.

Mouthfeel - Bright, light to medium body. Great clean finish, with only the faintest hint of stickiness.

Overall Drinkability - This is the best single IPA I've had in a long time. One of the best.

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

Cloudy amber/orange,fluffy one finger head,lots of tiny bubbles,fair amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Aroma is grapefruit peel,orange & pine, hops are in the spotlight.

Taste is a pleasant mirror of the aroma, lots of bright citrus flavors,pleasant bitter aftertaste,malt just enough to support the hops. Alcohol nicely hidden.

Light medium body, above average mouthfeel, well carbonated.

Straight up solid IPA that has a lot going for it, nicely hoppy, with a crisp dry finish.

p/u @ jubilation in Albuquerque. Thank you Danny!
Poured from 12 oz bottle in "another brand" pint glass.
A-Clear golden amber with 1" white head that laces very well.
A- Fresh crisp citrus hops strong note. Very light floral note.
T- First and foremost it is strong grapefruit hops. This maybe due to their use of Columbus,Amarillo and Centennial hops. It is less floral than some other Am.Ipa's yet very very tasty. The taste lingers for a long time and mmm reminds you of it's goodness.
M- medium light mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation.
D- I really like this Am.IPA and will buy it again. I look forward to visiting the brewpub tasting it on tap.
This is the first beer they have started bottling. It is a new brewery with deep roots. Thank you!

Enjoying several of the Marble offerings while visiting Albuquerque. In advance of my trip my local buddy has been pumping me up on Marble IPA saying it was one of his favorites. While he's not a BA member, he knows a lot about quality beers and enjoys quality IPA's. I have to say, the is correct, this is a great IPA.

Bright gold in color with the slightest of a haze, wonderful full creamy head that rises above the glass. Excellent lacing. Indeed, a fine looking IPA.

Aroma is fantastic. Immediately lets you know you are dealing with a fresh IPA and one with great hop character. Bright, floral and focusing mainly on citrus/grapefruit notes. Very perfume like.

Excellent flavor that does follow the lead of the aroma. Burst of citrus hops with plenty of grapefruit even with the flavor of the peel. The malt profile is excellent and has that cracker/light bread flavor that I enjoy. Fresh is the main thought you have as you enjoy this.

Bright, refreshing, medium bodied with a crisp level of carbonation.

Have really enjoyed drinking this in my time in town. Excellent IPA and one that I think will get more play in the coming months.

Well Done. (Their Red Ale is great too!)
