Hard-raging micro here.
Stanky, dry-hop pellets appeal only to the cognoscenti of beer. Unfiltered, amber, and beautiful. Medium head with medium body (Doy!) for this classic APA. Starts, blossoms, and finishes well with only their other offerings posing as valid competition.
Chill Yucatan style with U.S.A. confidence.
Serving type: bottle

If you find yourself in Santa Fe, this is a worthwhile place to visit, particularly for this beer, which was exceptional!
Reddish amber with a thin but lasting head, nice lace and clear. The aroma is crisp and hoppy--lots of dry hop aroma; mild sweet malt counter balance.
Excellent balance on the taste: caramel malt quickly giving away to the strong hop flavor--closer to an IPA. The hop lasts long after the swallow, but the malt remains present. Full bodied with slightly less than average carbonation.
Served warm (cellar temperature), this was a real find. In many ways a superior pale ale, it is very complex and entertaining brew.
Serving type: on-tap
