look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

4.48/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out a very dark orange, like the kind you see after a night of hard partying. Good pine aromas, replete with funky nelson and citrus smells. Whatever you're looking for smell wise in a good ipa, this one is likely to satisfy those desires.

Taste delivers tropical and citrus fruit, along with those pine needles. Strong, warming, but not tasting above its own abv. Actually pretty easy drinking nonetheless, but it was made for someone like me I guess, so it should be. Has the funky presence of garlic and onions, a possible indicator of some summit hops, I thought it works nicely. Now that I think of it, maybe there's summits instead of nelson. Its somewhere in between those, thats for sure. A beer that will disgust people who don't like hops. There is a substantial malt bill to it, but never comes off overly caramelish. Just gives the hops something to play off of. Really the malt and yeast flavors are pretty neutral and don't get in the way of the hop onslaught.

Its massively bitter, but its not a one trick pony in that department, the hops leave plenty of mouthfeel and taste that go well above and beyond the bitterness.

This beer, and Sante Fe Hoppy Camper pretty much thrust New Mexico into being a top 10 ipa producing state. Meanwhile, Colorado has about 100 times the ipa's, but none of them being better. Sorry Myrcenary, you vill lose.

A- Pours a light golden orange color with a very slight haze. A nice white head that that has good retention and leaves some nice layered lacing.

S- Piney hops are everywhere on this one. Quite a bit of tropical fruits here too. A dash of sweet malts.

T- Again hops leading the way here too. Just about every hop description I can think of. Quite a bit of floral, tropical fruits with a good amount of pine. A pretty solid sweet malt back bone that gives this brew exception balance.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- A totally awesome brew. This one would give the big name brews a run for their money for sure.

Received a 64oz Growler of this in a trade w/ amcmaho1. Poured from the Marble Brewery Growler w/ hops in Yellow into a 0,47l New Belgium Oversized Snifter Glass. Filled @ the Brewery 2/4/12.

Aroma- Tons of fruits and American hops hit the nose big time. Starts off with a mix of Passion Fruit and/or SuperFruit! Wild! Then very sweet hops and peach comes around at the finish. Good work on the aroma!

Appearance- Pours almost no head at all but a few bubbles (due to Growler). Has a Glowing, Reddish/Copper colored body with decent clarity. Leaves no lacing behind.

Flavor- Mango hop flavor and simcoe hops start this one off strong. Very big and punches the mouth all the way through. Medium-High Bitterness and quite an overload of hops! Did someone say American IPA? Ok good.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Hop Extreme, and finishes with hop sensation like a 2X IPA would! Awesome.

Overall Impression- Now I see why this one won the GABF award! Huge! The nose on this deserves an award alone. Definitely recommend looking for this brew or if in town, stopping by for a Growler. One of my top 10 IPA's right now and looking to enjoy some more! Thanks Alex!

Big thanks to Mark and Gloria for the generous growler share! Multiple pours into a Coronado snifter:

Informal review in a dark bar, so bear with me.

Orange peel liquid with ivory foam receding to alsting collar. Shimmering dots of lace.

Balanced spicy hop notes with a toasty malt backbone in the nose. Citrus zest and a bit more fruit and woodsy notes as well.

Again, balance is key on the palate. Capsicum, citrus, coriander, herbs, and deep toasted malt. Truly, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Moderate yet assertive bitterness throughout. A bit of evergreen and orange zest. Summit or simcoe seems likely, though above all BALANCE is key.

Evervesent, almost spritzy, though these qualities are fading a bit due to the growler seal. ABV is very well disguised.

Clarity and synergy of ingredients is paramount to this ale...remarkable the spread of fantastic IPAs throughout the Southwest now. Worth seeking out!

I've had this brew many times but seeing as how it took GOLD at GABF yesterday I figured it was time to review. Poured from a growler into a Bruery snifter.

A - medium golden amber color with a quarter-inch of white head. Looks pretty standard.

S - garlic right away, a ton of citrus, pine... the simcoe hops are really standing out. Smells really outstanding.

T - as the nose indicated, a ton of fresh simcoe action. Some leathery garlic and bitter citrus are balanced out nicely by a malty finish.

M - this is where I was really blown away. Normally brews with such a big simcoe presence don't taste too great to me because they seem to be a bit too bitter. However, this baby finishes ridiculously smoothly and hides it's decently high ABV quite well.

O - a fantastic IPA that I'm happy to have access to around the clock. Congratulations La Cumbre!

Picked up a fresh growler today, having had this beer many many times before, I figured it was time I review it.

Appearance: Really dark golden-orange color, with a light frothy white head. Great activity from the carbonation, and really nice head retention.

Smell: WOW! Jeff Erway has done it again, with an extremely hopped IPA with really intricate nuance. I get lots of tropical fruit and citrus at first, along with some earthy bitterness on the nose. Plenty of malt sweetness, though the hop profile definitely takes center stage here.

Taste: Awesome, assertive, and clean bitterness. What else could you want in an IPA? Great earthy and fruity notes carry over, along with a nice mellow malt profile. Dry bitterness which keeps this beer drinkable; the sweetness on the nose is basically absent in the taste.

Mouthfeel: Great dryness, and nicely balanced bitterness...really solid carbonation. The mouthfeel is very comfortable, making for a really drinkable IPA.

Overall: Another New Mexican IPA which never ceases to amaze!!! It's always fresh, and it's always just as good as the last time. We're lucky here to have another brewery with a golden track record

I cannot remember this beer extremely well because it was late in the night on new years eve, but I do remember several things.

The appearance was your typical IPA.

The smell was floral and beautiful.

Taste was fresh and hoppy. Oily taste with perfect carbonation and the perfect amount of bitterness.

4.93/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Yellow/Gold/Lt Orange hue. Clear w/ a little chill haze. Pours a nice 1 - 1.5 finger head and thick. Stays through the entire glass with a nice lacing.

S: Very hop forward. Nice piney hops giving way to citrusy orange, and even a hint of apricot in there. Interesting that it ends with a piney bite again. Get a little touch of malt sweetness in the smell, but very hop forward.

T: The taste is floral all the way. Pick up heavy floral hop notes up front with just a touch of citrus. Then gives way in the middle to a well-balanced malt sweetness and what seems like a touch of wheat, with a little touch of some medium crystal malt notes. Really like the dry finish to this one with a little piney hop bite right at the end.

MF: Very nice medium to medium light carbonation. Silky smooth/velvet feel on the back end of the mouth/throat as it goes down. Not too much chewy/sweetness for a 7.2 ABV IPA.

D: Cannot believe that this beer weighs in at 100 IBU. You'd never know it. And 7.2% ABV to boot. Wow. Very well hidden and very well balanced. I would drink this any and every day of the week. I would put this up against the best Big IPA/IIPAs out there.

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.

4.81/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

The beer comes in a slightly hazy light orange amber color.

The aroma is rushes of bright hops of peaches, orange peel, a new age hop berry. A light breadiness along some pine and dankness on the back along with onion and garlic.

The flavor is extremely different from other IPAs. The beer cuts off at about middle late palatte is bone dry! In the front, peach, orange peel, juicy pineapple. Then the beer is generally surrounded by medium minus piney bitterness. The beer is really dry and decently bitter, but as you drink more, a candy sweetness begins to pop its head up at mid palate, surrounded by a light bready malt, and then disappears. The finish is of fresh grapefruit peel.

An absolutely bone dry IPA and really where I want the style. I draw similarities to Zombie Dust because of the drying and malt body.

A: golden/copper color, great head and lacing. A lot of bubbles. Looks incredibly enticing.

S: Tropical fruit, dank, oily, resiny, heady awesomeness.

T: The first sip and the first sip only comes across slightly too bitter. After that it is perfect. I guess once that heavy dose of lupulins hits your tongue it prepares you for this multi layered, fantastic tasting IPA. Great interplay of hops and biscuity malts (definitely mostly dank, oily hops). Pineapple, guava, grapefruit peel, sweet bread, cannabis.

M: full, creamy, sticky, perfect.

O: one of the best IPAs. Seek this out

thanks to BA buyyourfreedom for this one! 16oz. can poured into a NEBCO DIPA snifter

A: Pours a beautiful golden, tawny, rich copper color with a frothy off-white head. Sticks around for a bit and never entirely goes away, nice lacing clings to the glass throughout.

S: If a smell can be perfectly balanced, this is. Fresh, grassy vegetation, hints of pineapple, ample dankocity (that is now a word)! Biscuity malts, enticing.

T/M: "Bitter, boldly hopped-up glory." Not sure what I can add to this line written on the side of the can but I'll try. The 100 IBUs are right there smacking you in the face (palate?), just a ton of grapefruit and pine, truly west coast in style. And right when you think your tongue can't take anymore, toasted bread & grains ease into the picture and make all right in the world. Mouthfeel is perfect, end of story.

O: File Elevated away as yet one more insanely good regional IPA that would have world class clout (and appeal) if it were simply available to more people (along with NoDa's Hop Drop & Roll, Fat Heads Head Hunter IPA, and The Brew Kettle's White Rajah). Incredibly drinkable. Seek this one out at all costs.

Thanks to fatbeats18 for sending this one over as an extra

A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with 4 fingers width of slightly off white colored head. Head dissipates down at a moderate rate and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Huge tropical fruit and citrus hop aromas. Tons of pineapple, orange, and mango. Floral and subtle piney notes as well. Subtle sweet malt backbone. Amazing aroma.

T: Lots of piney bitterness and citrus rind. Some dank, resinous notes. I dont get much of the tropical fruit characters that were present in the aroma, but still very good.

M/D: Full body, moderate carbonation, good smoothness, great drinkability.

O: Overall, an excellent IPA. Definitely worth seeking out. Thanks again fatbeats!

Thanks Mario, for giving me this beer from a brewery I have never heard of. Wow, that's how this story begins...Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Scent is packed with hoppy aromas, tropical and citrus fruit aromas. Tons of heavy hop aromas. Fresh hop leaves and fresh fruit...very little malt. Taste is just as it smells. The hop profile on this beer is ridiculous... so damn tasty. Drinkability is very high. Mouthfeel is near perfect. Overall, this is a beer that fights amongst the best of the best west coast IPAs...and no bruises on this one. Amazing IPA.

From 02/11/14 notes. Another big thanks to BeerLaywer85 for sharing another want; thanks Ross! 16 oz. can into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a transparent bright orange color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.

s - Smells of strong pine hops, citrus hops, grapefruit, earthy notes, light floral hops, and fruity malts. Pine dominates but I like it again.

t - Taste of pine hops, fruity malts, citrus hopes, bitter grapefruit and lemon, bread, and grains. Nice taste, with a decent bitter bite to it with all the pine. I like the nose a little better but they are close.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Moderate bitter bite here but easy to take down the whole can of it.

o - Overall another awesome DIPA; this one focuses a lot on the pine hops, which I enjoyed. Little bit of bitterness compared to some of the other great DIPA's we had tonight but really great and well worth seeking out. Would love to have it again.

16oz can with no date. After having some world class IPAs was interested to try this highly rated one. Pours a golden with decent bubbles and a sticky coating white head leaving clouds along the entire length of the glass. Smells of hop resin with some sweet citrus and a bit of orange peel. Goes down very smooth with a creamy feel that isn't too bitter or sweet. well balanced - would be a regular buyer if i could get more

Poured out of a can into a stemless Alchemist glass.

Appearance is a bit cloudy. Rich orange tone with a nice two finger head that faded slowly leaving a thin head. An IPA isn't really supposed to be this hazy but this might be the only flaw that I can point out.

The nose is great with piney hops, grapefruit and citrus. Smells amazing and the rest of the beer doesn't disappoint! Very well balanced with dank piny hop presence and a bitterness that lingers for just the right amount of time. Every sip makes me want more.

This is a near perfect IPA for me.

A- Murky orange/yellow/golden hue. Lots of head with this can. Retention is medium. Thin layer of head hangs on throughout.

S- Cedar, hops, pine sol?, I am getting some funk too.

T- I don't like IPA's that much, and this beer was not too overbearing with the hop bomb. Real pleasant taste on the palate with some citrus and pine. Not at all like Pliny though.

M- Pretty sturdy for an IPA. Carbonation follows big down the throat, but not the least bit gagging (I can't handle carbonation that well).

O- I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. I great IPA. I highly suggest!

Thanks to Gunch52 for the hookup on this!

Poured from a can into a large tulip glass.

Appearance- Pours a clear gold, with a lot of fizzy bubbles that subside to leave a thin, wispy, but frothy head. Just a residual layer on top gives it some foam. Maybe a bit light for the style, but for a brew from the Southwest, it seems appropriate.

Smell- Bright sweet hoppiness. Crisp alpha acidity with a bouquet of fruit- mango, pineapple, passion fruit, even some ripe strawberry. Sweet honeyed citrus zest. Not at all earthy or grassy, all fruit. Awesome smelling stuff.

Taste- Bitter hoppy attack anchored by a light honey malt smoothness, and a dry finish that leaves fading hop oiliness on the back of the palate. I was expecting a heavier caramel character to come through, but it never gets there. Malt character is light and smooth, and is perfectly balanced with the fruity hop bitterness. Great stuff.

Mouthfeel- Smooth to a fault- that almost comes across as flat. A few- and I mean a FEW bubbles tickle the tongue and palate. Smooth and soft all the way down.

Overall- A dynamite IPA! If I had this locally, it would be a go-to for sure. Great balanced brew with tons of bright hops. A great summertime IPA, or for any season! The can looks sweet too. The texture might be a drawback, but not enough to detract from the overall experience. I hope to get more of this.

Cheers!

A - Pours beautifully with a large 2 inch foam white head. Lacing is great sticks to the side. Looks just as beautiful as any other world class IPA

S - Smell may be the best part about this beer, amazing piney grapefruit citrus bomb that explodes with a load of hops

T - Same as the smell loads of hops, citrus, grapefruit with a solid amount of bitterness. Bitter dry finish.

M - At first it doesn't seem as though it's going to be smooth but as it finishes wow is it creamy and delicious. Awesome session beer IMO.

I can get this beer on tap any day of the week, but I swear I love it better from the can.

Today, I'm reviewing it based on the beer, from a can, poured into an English pint glass.

A- The appearance is really the stuff of legend. This thing produced a four-finger monster of a head that was like a bed of clouds. Fluffy, chewy-looking and marshmallow-like. The liquid itself is a beautiful golden amber and there is a persistent carbonation that bubbles up to the head. The head continues to persist long after the pour.

S- All types of goodness on the nose. Citrus wafts around and hits pine and hop resin and subtle malty sweetness lingers beneath. There's some earthiness and spice to the hops that add to the complexity and character. This beer smells perfect.

T- Heavy bitterness initially, hop resin, pineyness, some hints of citrus. Then a stiff maltiness comes into to smooth out the beer, add some warmth and balance. The beer then ends with a bitter, dry finish and some spicy hop that lingers on the palate.

M- The beer is quite bitter at the start and the finish, but just the right amount of malts in there have made this beer smooth, creamy and very quaffable. It's truly a superb beer.

O- A wonderful IPA, a great representation of the style and a great product to come out of New Mexico. This beer is really well done.
