poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a hazy orange-gold with swirls of yeast falling in intricate patterns. A good stream of bubbles come from various nucleation points to the three finger, foamy, off-white head. Head stays intact all the way down the glass. Leaves behind an intricate wall of lacing.

S - Nice citrus hop aroma of orange, mango, and pineapple upon opening the bottle. A little bit of pine shows up too once in the glass.

T - Orange-mango upfront. The body is dominated by orange citrus flavor and bright hop notes with all hints of malt banished to a dark corner to aid in mitigating the wave of hops. More snappy citrus hops as the beer passes over the back of the tongue followed by a bitter orange-mango finish.

M - A little weaker than medium bodied with ample carbonation to give a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. I would like to see this chewier.

I don't know if the pizza place I had this at was serving it too cold on draft, but the nose was much better from the bottle served at around 45 F. A real looker, and a straight forward easy drinking brew. Although I knocked off about half a point for the somewhat weak body, that characteristic along with the strong citrus flavors, and relatively low ABV compared to some of my favorites make this my go to IPA for the hotter months here in New Mexcio.

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.

Purchased at Libation Station, Johnson City, TN. First I bought a single...then went back for a 6 pack. 12oz brown glass pry-top. No date.

Pours a clear golden amber with thin white head. Nose is filled with a pleasant piney character and some pale caramel. Palate is immediately dry with hops, leafy, piney and bitter. There is some mellow malt underneath, rounding things out, but it comes off in a pale malt way, not obtrusive to the the hop character. Dry finish has a touch of citrus peel on it as well.

Notes: One of the best "6 pack" IPAs that I've found in a while and definitely a nice score down here in the weird lands of <6%>6% beer shopping.

Had this from a 12 oz glass and poured into a pint glass. It pours a light straw color with 3/4" white dish soap colored head. It laces the glass quite well throughout the drink. It smells very good. Definitely dry hopped well. Nice citrus aroma with a very light malt presence. The taste matches. Great hop forward flavor. Adequately carbonated and light bodied. This is definitely one of my favorite beers from NM. I've never had anything less than good from Marble BC. Thanks for another awesome brew Marble.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is light yellow hued and moderately hazy. The head is white and measures about a half inch, leaving some decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is hop forward and inviting. Notes of citrus and tropical fruits. The scent is my favorite aspect of the beer. The flavor is good. Hop forward with a light malt component. A bit lacking in depth. Light to medium in body. Aftertaste fades quickly. Overall, a decent beer. I would have this again.
