Thanks to Aaron M. for this one. Poured into can shaped glass. Poured a clean, clear copper gold color with over 1/4 inch of off-white head that had moderate retention and OK lacing.

Pine! As soon as the can was opened a huge blast of pine filled the air. On closer sniff, there was a light malt scent underneath, and a trace of floral hops as well. The taste wasn't as piney as the aroma, there was some citrus showing up as well, and the malt showed up in a slightly sticky-sweet finish.

The body was the typical medium of the style. Drinkability was good, about the same as most of the style. Overall, a solid, enjoyable example of the style. This beer shows that good, quality craft beers almost everywhere in the the USA. You don't have to hunt down far-off brews, drink fresh and local, and enjoy it!

12 oz. bottle.

Clear and clean deep golden body. Fat finger of dense, frothy, eggshell white head. Great lacing and retention. Peppery, spicy, citrusy, and piny hops on the nose. Sugary fruit malt notes as well.

Peppery, spicy hop bitterness up front. Sweetish bread and fruit notes follow. Light tropical fruits fill in as snappy, piny hop bitterness takes over into the finish. Lingering peppery, citrus hops. Dry. Medium body with a creamy feel. Another nice beer from Marble.

3.99/5  rDev -1%

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a frothy, though small, white head that delivers a few strands of lace

Smell: Piney, with some tropical fruit (papaya, tangerine and just a touch of mango) elements and an underlying hint of toffee

Taste: The toffee malt flavor lays down the backbone and persists from start to finish, even as the piney and tropical fruit hop flavors assert themselves in the middle; both the hops and the malts have an interesting interplay that I also detected in their DIPA

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Although I prefer a more attenuated IPA, I do like the balance here so I don't mind the residual sweetness of this brew

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity

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.

Got my hands on an incredibly fresh six-pack through the dearly departed Beerjobber.com. 12-oz can poured into my IPA flute. Aroma is classic citrus/tropical west coast IPA; flavor hints of Cascade, Centennial, Citra and Columbus though likely not all four. An exceptionally drinkable, delicious IPA. Between Marble and La Cumbre, New Mexico is starting to turn into a big-time player in the national IPA scene -- a shame their beers are available in only a tiny fraction of the country.

4.06/5  rDev +0.7%

12oz bottle, bottled 9 days ago

A - golden color, crispy clear, 2 inches of foam, reduces rather quickly, large amount if chunky lacing.

S - a little thin, but a brief kick of floral hops with some orange a md grapefruit citrus. Nice, but fleeting.

T - nice big punch of bitter oily citrus. Grapefruit is the lead, with some dense orange peel. Quick and clean bitter finish.

M - lighter side of medium mouthfeel. Nice oily hop element.

O - this IPA gets overshadowed by La Cumbre Elevated, which is brewed just a couple miles down the road. I'd actually neglected it for a long while. But it's extremely solid. I wish the nose were a little more prominent, but other than that, this is a really nice beer.
