Notes/Commercial Description:
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Hoppy goodness from La Cumbre. Delicious without being too bitter. Looking forward to trying Project Dank.

16oz can that's about a month old. Thanks to BeerMeBro720 for this one!

A: Pours a rusty orange shade of gold with a big, foamy head

S: Pineapple, sweet caramel malt, resin, soap(?), candied citrus, and pine

T: Tastes exactly like it smells: bitter pine, sweet pineapple, citrus, and more pine. Not as bitter as I was expecting from the IBU count, which I think is a compliment to how well-blended the flavor profile is.

M: Smooth, with a lovely dry and very, very bitter finish.

O: Pretty good stuff. This would be a repeat player if I lived in the ABQ.

Can brought back by David and shared tonight at the Christmas Party.
Huge dank resinous hop aroma. light sweet bready maltiness. Smooth hop flavor and bitterness. That's a damn fine IPA right there, if I lived closer I'd drink these often.
