Picked this up on a trip through Albuquerque. At $6.99 a six pack this is quite a bargain and was one of the best beers I had all vacation.

The smell was one of wonderful unabashed citrus hops. I love well-hopped red ales and this one is right there with Green Flash Hophead Red, maybe even hoppier.

Taste followed with floral and citrus butted up against a firmly malty center.

Too bad I bought only one sixpack.

Awesome clear blood red color. Nice fluffy foam head; slight green tint to a straw color.

Very nice pineapple hop with caramel background. Nice sweet malty scent.

Fantastic hop BOOM, very good for a red. This brew drinks wonderfully! Great carbonation, but slightly over bitter. Great hop forward brew with great appropriate dry biscuit-y bite.

Hands down one of the best reds I've ever had. Highly recommended.

An amber-red wonder. Wonderful sweet-hoppy aroma, the taste following suit. If the ABV were a tad higher, this would be Grade A IIPA, but when you'd rather have a slightly lower alcohol content yet have all the other benefits of an APA hop bomb, I would highly recommend this brew. Well-balanced, very easy drinking, and very, very tasty...

Continuing my beer journey through New Mexico. I've already reviewed the Marble IPA and really enjoyed it. But, I think I like this hoppy red even more. In some slight ways reminded me of Nugget Nectar.

Beautiful beer. Pours with a nice 2 finger off white head. Nice and creamy and still it collapses upon its own weight. Excellent clumpy lacing. Deep amber color, certainly some reddish/maroon tints.

Aroma is bright, fresh and full of hops. Pine like with a small amount of sweetness. There is certainly a sense of the malt in the aroma. Slightly toasty.

Flavor is fantastic and in my eyes very well balanced. Big hop punch up front followed by a nice toasted malt flavor.  While there is a pine note still, I get more citrus peel in the flavor. A real toasted sense to the malt flavor. Dark crusty bread with hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I really like this.

Slightly carbonated, medium bodied. A little oily.

I found this to be wonderfully drinkable. Another of my favorites in the Hoppy/Red category.

Well done and I continue to be impressed with Marble.
