Good DIPA, malt sweetness balanced pretty well with the hop bitterness and flavors. Definitely a good beer, but would order more elevated and project dank before this. Great IPA's at La Cumbre!

Served in a pub glass at the brewery.

Bright golden color with a cloudy amber tinge. Straw-colored at the base and frothy pale white head at the top. Good persistence on the head. 4.5

Smells of citrus and other sweet fruit swirling with dank stickiness. Big malt presence and sweetness too. Not as seductive as Elevated but it's nice. 4

Sweet and spicy flavors here. Plenty of malt flavor and feel here akin to Elevated. Floral flavor leads to a spicy frothy feel and flavor before a grapefruit/orange flavor and mellow bitter finish. This beer is rich in feel and flavor and is a meal in a glass. T- 4.25 M- 4.5

Love the smooth easy-drinking quality despite the fact it's bigger than Elevated and Dank (and tastes a bit like both). Excellent beer.

Growler from GHB. Thanks!

Pale golden body capped by a finger of head. The nose is heavy on pine and orange pith, with very little malt behind the hops. There's no trace of alcohol, and little yeast presence either for that matter. Very clean stuff. The palate is surprisingly light and dry for a near 9% beer; easily one of the driest DIPAs I've had. Very resinous and piney with orange peel bitterness and a touch of grapefruit. Bitterness is clean and balanced in the finish, never approaching astringent despite the very low final gravity. This is a great DIPA, though I prefer the hop profile of La Cumbre's Elevated IPA.

Bomber into a snifter. My first beer from La Cumbre.

A: Light yellow with a substantial white bubbly white head. Very good retention with a little lacing left behind.

S: Juicy orange and grapefruit flesh notes meld with caramel and bready malts. I get a bit of melon, perhaps cantaloupe, and light floral aromatics. The aroma show balance between hops and malt.

T: Sweet malts in the flavor, reminiscent of bread and caramel, with a smooth moderate bitterness. Citrus flesh tastes of orange and tangerine with lighter rind notes. The flavor gives no indication of the ABV. There's an increase in citrus rind in the smooth balanced finish.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty malty but solid on the whole. Not super expressive hop-wise, but respectable.
