New Mexico

4.9/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Batch 2, bottled 1/15

A - golden, honey color. Tall white head, tons of lacing.

S - lots of tropical, flowery notes. Tons of lemon and orange. Mango. The smell is in heady topper territory. One of the better smelling IPAs I've come across.

T - Top notch. Big hit of light citrus, tropical notes. Mangoes, lots and lots of citra. Orange peel/zest is a big part of the finish.

M - mid high carbonation. The hops coat the palate, but finish is relatively quick leaving a huge lingering citra hop note.

O - this beer is world class, period. At least as good as all the top shelf standards, heady, Pliny, abrasive, etc etc. If I could change one thing, it would be to tone down the citra just a bit, but that's strictly personal preference. It doesn't get a whole lot better than this. I highly recommend getting your hands on some.

Received this as an extra from @hambone85.

Appearance: orangey yellow with a half inch of head from a fairly aggressive pour.

Nose: grapefruit, orange peel, and a hint of mango.

Taste: orange and grapefruit, the malt flavor increases as as it warmed.

Mouthfeel: smooth with medium carbonation.

Overall: a nice IPA that I look forward to trying again.

exceptional taste and nose on this. La Cumbre is really underappreciated for thier ipas despite thier awards. Its like drinking candied orange peels, good amount of pineapple mango type flavors and aroma. The beer pours hazy orange color with a 1/4inch of head
