3.71/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a medium amber in the tall glass. Plenty of foam and a lively carbonation on the tongue. A hint of oil in the mouthfeel.

The massive blast of hops is a surprise. Huge aroma of piney pitch and something flowery. Enormous resiny flavor. Well, this is totally hop-centric, with endless flavors of all the Major Hop Groups-- resins, pine, grapefruit, lime peel, and ends up feeling like chewing on the stringy pulp of an unripe mango next to the big seed. Sharp and hot with oils. Tastes more alcoholic than it is. After the lush splash of hoppy aromatics, the bitterness takes over and leads you down the dark alley further than I care to go. But for sheer hop flavor, I see the attraction. Just let me off the bus.

From the 16 oz can bought at Jubilation Fine Wines in Albuquerque.

3.79/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Canned 3/22/14 at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma markedly piney
Head large (5 cm), yellowish, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing to 1.5 cm layer
Lacing fair with broken rings and large bubbles
Flavor - Very piney and bitter with no distinct alcohol, malt, or diacetyl flavors
Ends chalky and bitter
Palate medium, watery, carbonation soft.

A markedly bitter IPA, just as the brewers wanted. A little too bitter for my tastes, but I'll still drink the rest iof the four-pack and be happy I got to try it.

Got some tropical, pine,citrus notes but barely. Big malt flavor for a single iPA. Lots of bitterness and great mouthfeel. Was expecting much more than this. Probably an old can. Will definitely give it another shot with a fresh can if possible just to make sure. Too bad.

3.9/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a nonic glass.

A: Clear, light amber color with less than one finger of white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Potent hops ooze with floral and tropical fruit notes. There is a musty and corn-like layer also detectable, buried under the hops.

T: Begins off-dry, with understated soft pale malt and juicy hops of moderate intensity that display a range of West Coast qualities centered on the floral. It can't shake the husky corn quality from the smell, but it does not overpower. Acidity is very mild--difficult to determine where fruity hops end and acidity begins. Bitterness quickly rises to its zenith early in the middle and plods on rather monotonously until the finish. In fact, the late profile is sparse of sensory qualities, aside from the bitterness.

M: Thin to medium viscosity; slightly acidic, resinous, and warming on the palate; with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This IPA is the work of someone trying really hard. For the most part it is a success--the brewer's taste in hop cultivars is evident. It just seems to have an unexorcised demon or two, in the form of a phantom musty off-quality and some early heat on the palate.

Can poured into a Kuhnhenn tulip

A - Orange haze with light carbonation. Reflective and opaque. This has one finger of head that settled down with a decent amount of lacing

S - Citrus nose with pineapple, orange, and mango. There is also a slight bitterness with bits of pine and grapefruit

T - This beer uses a variety of hops to create a great beer. Up front, I get sweet citrus with orange, pineapple and hints of mango. As the beer moves towards the finish, bitterness takes over with pine and grapefruit that packs a punch. There is definitely a strong bitterness that lingers on the finish

MF - Medium with a slight syrupy body with light carbonation. Leaves a thick hop residue that remains on the tongue in the finish

O - This is a good IPA that has a good balances between sweet hops and bitterness to make this a drinkable IPA. If it only had bitter hops, it'd be too bitter and hard to drink and if it were only sweet, it would have enough oomph behind it.

3.93/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Big light tan head takes it's time to settle into a nice lacing with a small bisquity mound in the middle of the glass above a slight cloudy copper honey colored beer.

Citrus fruits with some light sappy pine aroma with a hint of malts coming through.

Almost a bitter bite on a citrus and piney hops taste with a slight almost soapy yeast coming along for the ride.

A dry light pine sap aftertaste on this medium bodied drink.

I've had this IPA at La Cumbre's brewery and I don't remember it having this soapy to soapy yeast in the otherwise well balanced citrus and piney hops. I think I'd have to recommend stopping in there and drinking or buying a growler from the guys, the light added soapiness seems to be a distraction for me.

On tap at La Cumbre, 2.11.11, poured into nonic pint glass, $4.25.

Full pour resulted in minimal white head, small bubbles, deep honey gold body a bit murky re unfiltered. Nose is hop forward, citrus and tropical hops, caramel malt, a slight bit of pine as it warmed. Taste mirrors the nose with some bubblegum notes, fairly resiny finish increasingly so as it warmed. Mouthfeel on the light side of medium, a bit of a surprise, minimal effervescence, by design after talking to brewmaster, sticky finish. Drinkability is good despite a tad bit of alcohol heat. Listed as 100 IBUs, this is tasty but not Ruination-esque IBUs IMO. Didn't get much more bitter as it warmed, a nice interpretation of SD-style here in ABQ. Worth a try.

Clear orange colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells of herbal hop and citrus, mostly grapefruit. Bright and fresh hop aromas with strong pine resin.

Starts out mildly sweet with a slight onion flavor. Strong hop flavor just slightly bitter. Leaf tobacco and leather in the taste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a good IPA.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

he head faded so fast here it wasn't even funny. There was a moment with a 1/2 finger of head. Some light foam remains. Slightly hazy amber/copper color.

I like the spice in the aroma. Very fresh and an interesting balance to this. There is plenty of hop character but also a touch of malt depth. Green, grass and pine more than grapefruit/citrus focused.

Wow, a blistering bitterness that I enjoy. Oily hop coats your tongue out of the shoot. The malt backbone keeps it from going too far but there is no doubt where the power in this beer comes from. Green, oily hop goodness. Almost tastes like you are sucking on a hop pellet.

An unfiltered goodness to the mouth feel. A touch oily!

Nice beer.

Thanks! Can poured into a snifter. I'm looking forward to this. The label art has a decided New Mexican flair to it.

A: Burnished yellow gold with a finger of peaceful white froth. Lacing is scattered and retention is pretty good. Good clarity as well.

S: The nose strikes me as a blend of mandarin orange and onion, with lesser notes of tropical fruit. There's a little melon in there. Malt is bready and not insubstantial, though it doesn't impart much sweetness.

T: The flavor has some mandarin orange, grapefruit, and a little onion. There's a light malt backbone that lends a touch of sweetness, increasing the drinkability. It's not a bone dry IPA, but it's not exactly malty either. The bitterness is smooth and at a moderate level, and there's no alcohol to speak of. Smooth, hoppy, clean, and dry finish.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry and sticky.

Overall: A bit heavy on the onion for my taste, but still a nice IPA.

The lovely & talented GHB first sent me a growler of this brew, which was downright divine. Hearing my praise, he then proceeded to box up & send me a short month's worth of Elevated. 16 oz. tallboy cans - I hope this is as good out of metal as it was out of glass.

The pour fills up my imperial pint glass properly, gold leaning to orange. Pungent floral hops fence with grapefruit for the upper hand in the nose. No wimpy aromas here...IPA as it was meant to be, smeared with aggression.

Elevated IPA from the can just isn't the same beautiful beast that came unexpectedly from the growler. The floral notes remain, with more orange peel than in the nose. Citrus, lemon are faint but grow as the beer warms. There's a cut of onion in the background that detracts; I'm not a fan of leekish things in either solid or liquid formats. Bitterness builds with each sip & what seems polite at first ends up brutish & bruising after repeated exposure. Nice. Which only makes me want to drink faster.

I shared the growler in a line with tons of friends; I feel like that would have scored an easy "A" on the Richter scale. The canned version is very good, but doesn't quite hit that home run. If you can get this in the growler, do it.

473ml (16 oz) can sent a little while back by Mr. woodyChANdler. Poured to a Breakside pint glass & served with dinner (New York steak & Caesar salad).

A: Pretty copper-orange with enough carbonation to look busy, most of it starting at the nucleation point at the base of the glass! Lacing is terrific - coating well, cobwebs galore and loads of speckles and stacked strata (hey, I can see each sip!). Complexion is nearly clear.

S: Hearty tangerine citrus in the nose, modest pine/evergreen sappiness. Sweetly scented baked bread crust. Aroma seems to contract, rather expand, as it warms - an odd trait.

T: More citrus and grass, even a peachy note. Hops seem well-balanced, 100 IBUs, in the case, doesn't equate to tongue-punishing bitterness. Finish is dry, grainy - almost ashy.

M: Smooth, medium body. Great coating mouthfeel, residuals are bitter rind and grassy grains. Carbonation is subdued.

O: Wish I had a date on the can to go by, as it seems this didn't have the intense hoppiness others praise. Regardless, I enjoyed the juicy, citrus-driven hops and a strong malty backing. Would I get it again - ABSOLUTELY. Fresh as possible, please...

Tapped into a pint glass. My 300th beer rating. Woot!

Appearance - White one finger head with good retention and decent to good stick.

Smell - Medium strength hoppiness. Very grassy. No off flavors. Very smooth and balanced hop. No overpowering characters, and yet not boring.

Mouthfeel - Excellent. Full bodied. Smooth. Carbonated. No astringency.

Overall Drinkability - Probably one of the best American IPAs I've had. No extreme characters or off flavors, just a great session IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pale orange, almost a sickly yellow. One finger head, solid lacing, quickly fades to a thin white line. Nearly opaque and pulpy.

Bright and hoppy: citrus, maybe tropical or floral in the background. Almost insignificant malt presence. Not a huge aroma overall.

Dry and bitter; citrus and grassy, with a hint of wheat or even rye (slight spice), and perhaps a hint of pine. Almost pungent, with a not-unpleasant citrus peel washing over the tongue and cleansing the palate for the next sip.

Medium feel overall, with a lively, sparkly feel. Despite being hop-forward and dry, the feel is fairly heavy for the style, but smooth. Lingers with some hop oil residue very pleasantly.

La Cumbre advertises some major hops in this IPA, and they're not kidding! ABV of a single IPA; hoppiness of an Imperial IPA. Complex and pleasing. This isn't a balanced ale, by any means, but it has a very balanced mouthfeel, and is pretty drinkable for such a palate wrecker.

Thanks to JayORear for the trade!

Reviewing the Elevated IPA from the La Cumbre Brewing Company out of New Mexico.
Score: 91

Can is of unknown freshness. Served in a Half Acre tulip and enjoyed on 09/27/12.

Appearance: Pours a pumpkin-orange color with a slight dull golden hue that is on the opaque side of translucent. When held to the light, this beer turns to a really gorgeous sunset-orange color. One finger of off-white head at pour settles to a fog atop the glass, leaving patches of head clinging to the glass. Really good lacing and retention. Quite a beautiful IPA! 4.5/5

Smell: Grapefruit, peaches, tangerine and slightly earthy hops. Very smooth and mellow, and not nearly as in-your-face as most IPA. You know how orange peels smell after you cut out the pulp? I get some of that aroma here. Too. Very pleasant nose, very balanced. There is faint barley-malt aroma in the background too. 4/5

Taste: Like the nose, there is a balanced blend of sweet citrus, hops and malt, without any one of the components overwhelming the other. There's peaches and orange on the side of the tongue with an earthy hop flavor and some grapefruit on the center of the tongue. The maltiness is towards the finish, though a mildly bitter orange citrus flavor is what lingers. The earthiness of the hops is a little more pronounced on the palate than in the aroma, but it is not intense at all. There is a slight spiciness on the midpalate too, and a hint of lemon flavor. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Super oily mouthfeel. Medium-light bodied, higher end of light carbonation. Mildly bitter on the palate. 4.5/5

Overall: Nothing earth shattering or over-the-top here, but Elevated IPA is an incredibly smooth, balanced and easy-drinking IPA. If this were local to me, I would certainly buy this one regularly.

Recommendation: If you are local to the beer, nab some. If you are trading with someone local to this beer, ask them to get you some. Given it's mellow, balanced flavor profile, I have to imagine this would be a good starter IPA for casual beer drinkers.

Pairings: Cream-cheese jalapeno poppers.

Cost: $8.99 for a 22 oz (bomber) bottle.

16oz can

A - Clear and bright, orange. Head formation is pearly white, strong, breaks down to a film. Little bit of lacing.

S - Strong citrus hops, bright and sweet. A little hint of resin in there somewhere. Mega-hoppy.

T - Starts off with a super strong citrus flavor, almost sweet -combination of malts and the hops. Mid-stream gets awfully bitter - pretty close to a balance. Resin, oily flavors appear in the finish. A bitter aftertaste.

M - Moderate to strong body, moderate carbonation. Comes off a bit hefty. No alcohol warmth detected. Oily sticky aftertaste.

O/D - Not overly filling, and the abv is workable. THe bitterness does begin to dominate the palette after a while. A very tasty IPA for those who like citrus forward beers.

Sampled March 2011
The beer pours from the growler with a pale tan head that sits on top of a clear, copper hued beer that shows a brightness when held up to the light. There is a really, dank hop character to the nose that is a mix of tropical and citrus fruit and “hemp” oil. The nose is just so dank and juicy; specific notes of tangelo, a bit lychee character, mango, a hint of menthol, and just a really big hemp like character is found here. There is a touch of supporting malt character that provides hints of a cracker like whole grain character.

The beer is lightly sweet and has a fair amount of a crystal malt backbone to it. The hop character is of course the dominant note in the flavor, with a nicely herbal character, lots of hop-fruit, a firm bitterness (that is not over the top), lots of pine notes, a firm herbaceous hemp-seed like flavor, and rounding notes of lychee and even some mango are noticeable here.

This is nice and dankly fresh. I like how light and quaffable this is, as that is really what I want in an IPA. The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the aroma, but this is still something I am quite happy to be drinking.

The man, woodychandler, provides the hook up with this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has an orange/brownish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, tropical fruits. Taste is also very hoppy, bitter, lots of fruits, a touch of malts, tasty. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a quality beer worth seeking out.

16oz can with an apparent can date of 12/3/12? Thanks a lot to GHB for sending this my way. Orange color, great head, sticky lacing. Smells like pine, pungent, dank, stanky good. Flavor is bitter, citrus, lemon, a hint of malt. Overall, very solid hop bomb and is really right up my alley as far as IPA's go. I might even say this is west coast style but I'm not sure, I'm no expert.

A: Pours a dark amber color with a yellowish head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin ring. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light fruity and grass undertones. Candied lemon with a sweet malt backbone.

T: Citrus and pineapple with some grassy undertones. Light bitterness with an accompanying sweet toffee malt. Jammy sweetness and fruitiness as well. Slightly earthy with some minimal scallion.

M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Fruity and grassy finish.

O: Pretty good and easily drinkable. Nose left a little to be desired, but overall it was very good and I'm glad something good is coming out of New Mexico.

16oz can from Beerandboards (thanks!). No canning date. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Pours golden orange with a half finger near white head. Nice large clumps of lace.

Smells of piney, floral a vaguely citrus hops.

Citrus comes though much more in the flavor. Orange, peel, bitter pine needles, flower pedals, pepper, wheat bread and just a bit of booze on the back end.

Oily slick medium body with light carbonation. Long dry orange and pine finish.

A right fine IPA. I like that it wasn't overly carbonated so the oily pine and orange peel coated the tongue with satisfying bitterness. Worth a try if you find it available.

Reviewed from notes.

Pour is a copper-gold haze with a white head.

Smell is huge tropical fruit (guava, papaya, pineapple) with soft pine and dank notes.

Flavor is slightly roasty- not in a malty sense, but the caramelization one gets from grilling pineapple, and a ton of fresh fruits - pine, dank, and slightly grassy.

High carb and medium body.

Very good extra. Thanks guys!

Tall pint can poured into a snifter.

Elevated IPA pours a nice light honey, orange color, fairly clear with a bit of cloudiness. A thin, quarter finger of soapy white head appears and recedes somewhat quickly, leaving behind a small layer of film. The head is easily re-summoned with a flick of the glass, not much lacing is left behind. The aroma is nice and clean albeit a bit muted and not very explosive. Ample piney hops, floral and citrusy esters, a bit of simple malt on the back end, but this really highlights and emphasizes the great hop profile. The flavors are much more impactful, great citrus forward flavors with really nice floral undertones. Resinous, earthy piney hops round out a really wonderful hop spectrum. Just enough light malt to keep the hop bitterness in check and to add in some nice sweetness that plays very well with the floral and citrus notes. The body is great, perfectly carbonated, a bit soapy, but spot on for an IPA, smooth, not too full, not too thin, great dry finish.

Verdict: Great IPA from La Cumbre, worthy of all the accolades. Perfectly bitter, great spectrum of flavors, I wish the nose was a bit more pungent, but this is great, great stuff. So glad to have gotten my hands on a 4 pack.
