4.13/5  rDev +2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Received in a trade with GabrielM thanks!

Appearance: Pours a soft golden with a touch of orange and a nice rocky white 2 finger crown that displays good retention and lace. Nice hop oil sheen over the crown as well.

Smell: Grapefruit over bready malt. Lots of bitterness but not much depth.

Taste: Same as nose but a bit more "rind" like. Could use some tropical fruit notes in my opinion. A very pithy DIPA with nicely controlled bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with good carbonation. Standard.

Drinkability: Sessionable DIPA here.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Thanks to papollo for this bottle!

These New Mexican brews have been quite nice so far. This one pours a hazy amber orange topped by about a finger of white suds. The nose comprises a hefty blend of pine and citrus, with a light bit of onions and nutty caramel thrust to the background. The taste gets rid of the onions (thankfully), focuses on a nice synthesis of the pine and citrus, and maintains the light bit o' nutty caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light carbonation and a nearly drying finish. Overall, a nice DIPA, easy to drink, but not something that I would continually clamor for. More of a nice occasional brew.

Something on the bottle says 4 23 10.

Poured into my trusty tulip glass. Nice white head on this one with a slightly hazy copper colored body. I like the way this one looks.

The smell is very nice. Lots of tropical fruit flavor on this one and sweet candy. Yum.

No wall of hops here, but the bitterness is solid in the start. The finish gives a little sweetness. I'm thinking orange tic-tacsesque. Not bad.

I could use a little more carbonation on this one and I imagine this could be an extraordinary brew when fresh.

Thank you Paul(papollo) for this wonderful brew!

A - Dark copper in color, with a big fluffy white head which dissipates slowly with immeasurable amounts of lacing.

S - Smells of rich pine, woods, and earth. Slight citrus and even slighter malty base. I may be simplifying the description, but in fewer words, it is fantastic.

T/M - Bitter pines and resins mixed with citrus fruits and hints of malty sweetness. Medium in body with a formidable amount of mouth coating for the style and body. Welcomed and refreshing.

D - Simply, It's unfortunate that I have only A bottle.

Marble DIPA growler into snifter

Barely hazed beautiful medium orange with gold highlights. A soapy
white head rests atop and leaves pretty lacing that isn't dense, but
lightly trailed. Nice retention.

Nose is like a fresh citrus salad cut with lemon juice. Tangerines,
orange rind, soft pine resin, light herbs, prickly hop leaf. Very
orange dominant. A soft touch of ruby red grapefruit. Faint caramel
sweetness, and some boozy vapors as it warms.

The palette is similar to the nose, but not quite as powerful.
Definitely has a strong orange/tangerine presense, lemon, grapefruit
rind, green herbs, and a deft touch of caramel malt that fades in and
out. A moderately stiff bitterness toward the end. The flavors liven
up a bit as it warms, but it still lacks the all out punchiness that a
DIPA should have.

Mouthfeel is moderate and slick with a low-medium carbonation.

Drinks pretty well, but its lacking in depth and intensity. I hate to
say it, but this is probably my least favorite Marble brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

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!

Brought a bottle of this great DPA home from a recent trip to Albuquerque. Shares it last night with a buddy and it was as good as I remembered from New Mexico. I was a bit concerned that my memories of the beer were bolstered by a great weekend in the southwest. No worry, it is truly a great DPA.

Pours with a fluffy/creamy eggshell colored head. Nice retention and a decent amount of lacing. Bright gold amber color with excellent clarity.

Aroma is wonderful and a fresh citrus hop explosion. Very floral and bright.

Truly a "double" version of their standard IPA (which is also awesome) Bright citrus flavors hit you immediately. Then a wonderful cracker/toasted malt flavor provides perfect balance. Reminds me a touch of Pliny the Elder. There is a similar tone to the malt flavors. At some point, I'd like to try these next to each other. Finish is bright, fresh and floral again. Just wonderful.

Mouth feel is medium/light in body, fresh and also a little dry on the finish. Not quite crisp.

A wonderful beer to drink. I'll get more, oh yes, I will.
