Pours a hazy gold with a thumb and a half width creamy off-white head. A very nice aroma; sweet and biscuity malt foundation wit some nice tropical fruitiness, along with some rind and pine to give off some bitterness. A moderately bitter flavor that properly reflects the aroma;. Crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice IPA.

12oz bottle dated 5/11/12 received in trade today from shuntstout.

Hazy, golden orange elixir poured into DFH snifter. Nice one-finger, white head, leaves 2mm cap on brew. Beautiful, fluffy lacing coats the glass.

Citrus aromas of oranges, grapefruit, lemon zest and pineapple.

Smooth bitterness, grapefruit tang, bit of the malt backbone comes through.

Medium body, well carbonated.

Solid IPA. I appreciate the lower ABV (under 7%) but don't find it lessens the hop impact. Look forward to more from Marble.

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.

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.

Picked it up at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque, N.M. Poured from a bottle into a small glass (maybe eight ounces) that I had in the hotel room in Albuquerque, N.M. on April 20. About a finger of head. Color was golden yellow with lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Frothy, cloudy white lacing on the top. Healthy amount of sporadic film on the sides.

Smelled of hops right off the get-go, but not overwhelming. Seemed to be grapefruit citrus hops. Decent amount of pine in there. Some sweetness to it too.

Not a bad taste, definitely better than the smell. Got the citrus notes up front (more lemon up front, ending with definite grapefruit). Pretty piny, too. Could definitely taste the alcohol. Not as bitter as I would have though.

Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, grapefruit finish.

Pretty happy with this beer. Grapefruit rules the day here.

Bottle dated 3/23/2012, fairly fresh. Bright orange-yellow color, clear, good head. Farily hoppy smell to it, not quite dank or piney and yet not really tropical, herbal I guess. Taste is bitter, hoppy and a little chewy malt action going on as well. Overall this is a solid IPA and one I'll probably buy again.

Bottled 3/20/12.

Served cold into a pint glass, Marble IPA is a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thin sticky head.

Aroma is pleasantly hoppy and fresh with nice citrus character.

Flavor is really quite nice with strong hop bitterness and flavor. The citrus from the aroma carries over with the addition of pine.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall a strongly hopped IPA but one with a little lower ABV than most making it a little more drinkable.

Clear copper fluid fits easily into Bruery Tulip with one swift pour. Head is white foam with small soapy bubbles. Very little lacing to speak of.

Strong hop aroma greats you upon opening the bottle... Very pineapple, apple, yes, apple, grapefruit, and the rest of your typical west coast IPA aromas. Very buttery and smooth.

Very smooth and quite bitter... Just as an IPA should be. It could stand to be more creamy and thick, but I'll take it. Very nice tropical citrus favor. Thin body with over carbonation.

This brew is all over the board... Very good flavor and aroma, but struggles lie within the mouthfeel... A very good first offering from Marble, welcome to Colorado!

first beer from these guys, on tap at lady falc's in durango, co. 2 bucks a pint! pours a hazy golden to orange color with a small white head. smells balanced, pale malts up front and a very fresh hop aroma in the back. this one smells like the springtime, very alive and bright. flavor isnt as exciting, but it is still delicious. grassy hops as the profile here. feel is nice, super refreshing and lighter on the body so its very drinkable. i will look for more of their beers in the future, as this was a pretty solid ipa with a memorable hop complexity. yummy

XicanoBeerRun shared this with me.

This looks resplendent, a golden yellow with billowy foam that dissipates into a tight, thin lace. Aroma is amazing, just a full-breath of grassy pine goodness. Flavor leaps off the palate. Very crisp, very sharp, very much grassy-pine like the aroma. Tastes incredible, finishes leaving me wanting another. Loved it!

A - A golden pilsner color. Clear, with a touch of head, but not much. A bit of sticky lace sticks to the glass.

S - Citrus and pine hops, but nothing jumps out.

T - Bitter, piny hops. Grapefruit.

M - medium body and carbonation.

O - A below average IPA. Reminds me a bit of the Sweetwater IPA, with the piny hops and grapefruit taste.
