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.

Thanks to yoruefragile for sharing this one. Served in a Fantome tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate orange color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward some orange, citrus, and tropical fruits and a light malt presence. The flavor is about the same with the fruit coming forward and malt in the background. Medium body with good carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Thanks Michael, I'm always up for a little IPA. Served in a Fantome glass. Beer is amber mostly hazy with a thin white head, small and medium bubbles, some lacing, mild retention.

Aroma is piny with hints of malt and some citrus hops.

Overall a decent little IPA, medium bodied, moderate bitterness, fresh fruit on the palate, mild earthiness in the midpalate, minor malt backbone. I'd have it again if it were the only IPA available at the time.

From 11/05/11 notes. Thanks to yourfragile for sharing this one. Consumed right before their DIPA.

a - Pours a hazy orange color with one inch of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells tropical fruits, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, and pine hops. Ton of fresh hops and fruit, great nose here.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, fruity malts, and some decent bitterness.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice bitter bite in the mouth.

o - Overall a really good IPA. I like the nose a lot; it was super hoppy and fresh. Would love to have it again.

Thanks to leschkie for this bottle.

A: Pours a wonderful cloudy golden orange. There is only a small white head and it thins quickly.

S: This beer smells like a complete hop bomb. I'm picking up pine, tropical fruits, and citrus. This is exactly how I want every IPA to smell. Absolutely incredible.

T: Unfortunately this beer doesn't taste as great as it smells. Huge grapefruit and bitter right up top. And that taste just doesn't fade. This brew it bitter, bitter, and then some more bitter. No surprise... the finish is bitter.

M: Medium bodied beer. The Hops coat the palate and just don't let go. I'd really like to have some more balance in this beer.

O: This beer smells amazing, but the taste is lacking. I almost feel like the brewers just threw as much hops, and as many different types of hops, into this beer as possible. It's super bitter, and that kind of ruins the possible subtleties this beer could have. I'm happy to have tried it, but I don't need another bottle.

Bottled on 9/12/11.

Poured a slightly hazy light gold with a rocky 2 finger head. This beer has excellent head retention.

There is a nice citrusy hop aroma although I feel it could be a bit more pronounced.

The taste is fairly well balanced between hop flavor and bitterness. There is a nice male character as well.

I think overall this is a pretty good IPA. It is starting to become my go-to IPA as I think it is the best one that is available to me here in northeast TN.

Essentially my "go-to" beer for quite some time. Had many many times before, but never before reviewed.
Enjoyed at Marble Brewery

Appearance: Great golden coloration, which is very pale. Nice head retention with some big-time stickiness. It's a really great looking beer aesthetically, it has a really "classic" quality about it.

Smell: A huge hope presence!! Really full spectrum hoppiness here, with floral to earthy, to citrusy, and everywhere in between. This certainly works to show of hops hops and even more hops... There's malt in there too, but you've gotta search a little bit.

Taste: Amazingly clean tasting, in that the bitterness of the hops isn't bombarding. It has nice balance, some nice malt notes on the finish, and great hop presence throughout. Certainly on of the best IPA's that NM has to offer; we're lucky enough to have access to it year round and always have it at it's freshest state too.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, dry, and smooth. Really, an exceptional IPA (not to completely sound like i'm "home-towning").

Overall: A beer that holds a special place in my heart as one of my introductions into hop-hood. We're lucky again, to have access to it when it's extremely fresh, and more and more local restaurants are offering it on tap (it pairs with green chile enchiladas magnificently). I have nothing but good praise for this beer, and I hope people outside of NM get the chance to try it.
