IPAs have become a staple in the craft brewing world, and this one is sure to please your hop-head palate. This beer is dryer and less malty than our High Altitude Pale ale. Dry hopped with Columbus, Centennial and Cascade hops.

I'm surprised that this isn't rated higher than their oatmeal stout.

This is one of well made beers that simply cannot get the credit that it is due. A flawless IPA made at a small restaurant and brew pub in Santa Fe, NM. Second time I have had it in the past 12 months. It is as good this time as last.

A - Light amber color with good clarity.

S - Good strong hoppy nose - pine and citrus.

T - Flavor is very bright and fresh. This is why I like finding fresh local IPAs. Taste follows the nose piney and citrus. Excellant bright hops flavors with plenty malt depth to make it interesting.

M - Mouthfeel is light to medium for the style. Refreshing.

O - An excellant IPA. I would drink this regularly if I could get it. It is excellant. If you are in Santa Fe, you have to try this beer. All-in-all It's a really good restaurant, but this beer makes it great. I hope they continue to produce this beer to this degree of quality. I will make it my regular stop.

Enjoyed from the tap (with a green chile burger) on a recent visit to Santa Fe.

Appearance - Amber with almost no head.

Smell - mild hops (pine, spice).

Taste - really nice citrus and pine. More flavorful than one would expect from the smell. Well-balanced.

Mouthfeel - light.

Drinkability - Good example of a locally-produced IPA. You can tell the brewers are concerned with quality instead of mass production. I would recommend this to friends while they're in the area; and the green chile burger, as well.

After a long, wet, and cold day of hiking, I was in the mood for a hop fix. Does this deliver? Absolutely!

a: This was a slightly cloudy, golden copper color. It was served to me with a whisp of white froth. I have to give these guys credit, this wasn't served ice-cold. It was the perfect drinking temperature as soon as it got to the table,

s: Lemony grassy hops and some caramel malts to provide just enough balance.

t: Fresh, lemony and faintly garlicy hops up front. The finish was a little too astringently sweet.

m: A nice, oily body and excellent carbonation.

d: This was almost exactly what I hoped it would be.
