On tap at the brewery. Hazed dark gold with a white head that sticks in sheets. Great blend of American hop character - juicy citrus, raw pine, and a whap of pepper and floral perfume. The hoppiness is of the vibrant, juicy, and fresh quality, not so much the rip the mucosa from your mouth quality. Malt stays the hell out of the way - light sugar cookie sweetness and a faint husky flavor. Dry, dry, dry...just as the style should be. A smack of hops in a beer that goes down way too easy. An excellent DIPA from Marble.

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 two fingers of head. Color was a hazier version of the regular IPA and more orangish. Cloudy, pillowy lacing on the top. Tons of film on the side of the glass. Wet, cobwebby.

Good-smelling beer. Got the citrus hop I was expecting, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Good balance of lemon, tangerine and grapefruit (but once again, not overpowering). Light smell of caramel. Bitter notes on the nose after awhile.

The taste certainly didn’t disappoint, In fact, it reminded me a bit of the Firestone Double Jack. Just a nice smooth taste of hops and caramel, carefully balancing each other out.

Medium-to-light body. Creamy finish. Average carbonation. Long-lasting, smooth finish, just a small note that it is strong.

Really, really enjoyed this beer. You’re going to get drunk, but you may not notice it right away. To me it still seems close to Firestone’s Double Jack. Just a good Double IPA.

22 oz. bottle tried 14 Feb 2010. Gift from K&J, thanks!

Poured in a Twisted Pine shaker pint. Medium sized off white head. Moderate carbonation. Clear orange color. Aroma is fragrant, juicy, orangey, some resin, orange juice, pith and zest. Starts sweet, quickly becoming peppery and then pithy bitter. Sweet sticky finish with a lot of lingering bitter orange peel. Finish is warming with ethanol. Aftertaste is citric and long lasting. Medium body.

Send us more K!

Pours a golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is resinous, citrus juice and its rind, toasted malt. Flavor is the same. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, fresh on tap at their tap house this beer definitely delivered. Good stuff indeed. Would drink again.

A: Clear yellow-brown pour with at least 3 fingers of white head. The head laces a ton while receding and lasts a really long while.

S: Really piney and citrus aroma with a nice malty base. The dry, piney hops really shine through here. I think I'm getting a touch of booze, but nothing out of the ordinary. This has a really nice balance, and an inviting aroma overall.

T: The balance continues through the taste. A really nice piney, bitter taste combatted by the caramel maltiness. It has the hops of a big West Coast IPA, but makes it work with some malt balance as well. Really impressed.

MF: Medium body with a nice amount of carbonation. The sweet and bitter feud in the taste makes it quite drinkable.

O: I really liked this. Typically when I taste a ton of malt in an IPA I'm wondering what went wrong, but this is nothing but tasty. Do yourself a favor and try it!

Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Smell is orange rind and malt. Taste is peppery spicy up front, with a dry malt middle and a piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, low carbonation. Drinkability is good, it gets a bit strong after awhile though with the 22oz bottle. I would definately get this again though.

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.

A - The beer pours a little over a finger of slightly orange/off-white head. The bubbles are good size in the middle and tiny on the sides. Head sticks around for a while. The body on this thing is super cloudy and mostly orange. Some brown in there as well. Strong lacing.

S - Smells pretty amazing. Some citra hops, malty backbone, and floral notes. Really a pretty typical DIPA aroma, but it is done very well and quite nice.

T - Again pretty typical. Good hop characters to balance out strong all around flavors. The finish is a little harsh and bitter. Pine, malt, and bread.

M - The feel is nice on the tongue. Good carbonation and body. Just a little mouth puckering bitterness.

O - Quite nice and everything you expect out of a DIPA. Could be a little more smooth on the flavors.
