(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.

The march towards incredible beers in cans continues. This beer had the most fragrant hop aroma I have ever experience for a beer in a can. Clean, crisp citrus joy. The flavor was also outstanding. Light yet full of great piney citrus flavor. A very drinkable IPA.

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

I have this right up there among the best IPAs that I've yet had - the head retention was lacking, but other than that this thing was by far the best NM beer I tasted in a recent tour of the South West. For me it has that 'just right' balance of sweetness and hops that I love so much in Bells Two Hearted Ale - a beer I have no problem saying Marblehas equalled if not improved upon by adding a bit more mouthfeel! Well done!

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.
