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.

Tall cans from trade. Thanks. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy yet fluffy half inch white head on top. Big hop aroma wafting out of the can and my glass with definite strong pine notes, citrus and grapefruit, grass, quite classic smelling IPA but with extra big aromatics. Flavor is dry bitter pine up front, fades into lightly sweet grapefruit and mango notes, some buscuity malts, finishing dry on the palate. Medium bodied at first but surprisingly light on the tongue, resinous, plus carbonation. This is really good, but the taste doesn’t quite live up to the awesome aroma.

16 oz tallboy can. Sticker on the 4 pack "Canned 10/24/2014"

A: Standard color for an IPA. Soapy head with OK retention.

S: You can smell this beer as soon as you crack open a can.

T: West coast style hop bomb, so many piney, citrus notes. Light malt backbone. You don't even taste the booze. Just top notch stuff.

M: Could maybe use a little more carbonation. Almost no heat from the alcohol.

O: Been wanting to try this for a while, and it did not disappoint. A huge beer, just hoppy as hell and executed well. For $9.99/4 pack of tallboys, this is a great deal. COME TO DENVER, LA CUMBRE
