look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with a respectable head; good stickage and a few shards a lace

Smell: Biscuity, with a hint of toffee and tropical hops (pineapple, orange and mango)

Taste: Biscuity, up front, through the tropical hops arrive early and stay late; underneath, there is a bit of toffee flavor that lingers in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nicely balanced with a very nice hop profile

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity (492 characters)

Great beer, dank, dank, dank. Everyone is talking about La Cumbre in the ABQ but Marble is killing it and this beer is proof. Wish they distributed to Colorado. (160 characters)

Pretty nice DIPA.

In a tulip the beer was a hazy orange color. The voluminous white head resembled whipped cream. There was abundant lace.

Citrus and herbal aroma. Some malt, but not an appreciable amount.

Same thing with the taste. Lots of grapefruit and piney hops, not so much malt.

Definitely a hop-forward DIPA. Medium-bodied, very enjoyable. (351 characters)

22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits with a big resiny piney floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid DIPA. (352 characters)

Pale gold color with wispy white head and a fairly thick collar. Good lacing. Aroma is grassy, floral, slight citrus, light malt sweetness. Taste is citrusy, grassy and floral. Nice hop bite on the tongue, pretty dry. Medium body and high carbonation. Not at all a bad brew. (274 characters)

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellowish-gold color with a white head. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of pine, oranges and papaya. An extremely fruity smelling Double IPA. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma.

The flavor is just as nice. I get quite a bit of resinous pine, which mixes nicely with tropical fruit such as pineapple and papaya. The bitterness level is about medium. A very easy drinking Double IPA.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (507 characters)

Being a big fan of the regular IPA from Marble, I'd been wanting to give this one a shot. I was not disappointed at all! Fantastic color when poured from the bottle and really nice lacing down the glass. Very similar (duh) to the regular IPA, but has a little more kick to it - which is really enjoyable. Maybe I've just had too many of the regular IPA :)
Would definitely like to try this one again. Worth a purchase if you run across it. (439 characters)

Thanks to koufax 21 for sending this beer bottled in July to me. . . in August. A dark yellow beer. Sticky lace from the average white head. Aroma was nice, a little heavy, bitter, good dry hopping.

Taste, well, it was made in July, but still pretty good. We'll see how it goes fresh. But in this state, lots of caramel, heavy bitterness, still a hearty hop presence. Seemed to have a muddled pine and orange julius vibe to it, and very sticky from the age probably. (467 characters)

Half pour at the Santa Fe Taproom arrives in a slender-based glass that widens near the top.

Nice creamy pale white head a half finger thick quickly skedaddles leaving bubbly lace in its wake. The brew is cloudy golden and amber with a blonde hue at the base. 4.25

Incredible sweet fruitiness is part citrus and part berry. Pretty delightful. 4.25

There's a spicy hop flavor and hop oil flavor that feel like chewing a hop, but light berry and citrus seep in a mellow the flavor out. The finish is sweet caramel and grassiness. 4.25

Such a number of sensations here: spicy, sweet and smooth, bitter, creamy, and bubbly. It seems to hot all the bases and then some. 4.5

Sleeper DIPA. Hold this up to the IPA you idolize and I'll bet you'll have doubts. (756 characters)

Bottled 3/9/2012.

Bomber served cold into a pint glass.

Marble's DIPA is a pale golden yellow color with great clarity. The head is thick and long-lasting and leaves some nice lacing as it settles.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with some citrus, pine, and grapefruit.

Flavor is surprisingly bitter and a big alcohol heat. The malt is mild in flavor and light in color. This is clearly one of those beers that only has malt to have something there to ferment because it's all about the hops. Very big on the grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Unfortunately, the alcohol burns like 10% even though it's only 8%.

Overall a decent DIPA but not one that I would get again. (695 characters)

Apperance: Translucent orange hue. Excellent foam. Looks almost perfect in the goblet at the Santa Fe Tap Room.

Smell: Strong yet subtle grapefruit with some heavy yeast notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: A delicious IPA. Spiced grapefruit and a thick, almost hef-like mouthfeel. Excellent crispness as well. Near-perfect, if not so.

Overall Drinkability: One of the best IPAs. (369 characters)
