New Mexico

3.48/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber, no bottled date

A - darker orange. Smaller amount of white head.

S - dank pine, some rich citrus, orange, some alcohol.

T - thick bitterness kind of takes everything over. There is a piney hop note, sappy almost. Bitter orange. Aftertaste is dominated by bitter citrus.

M - under carbonated. Oily.

O - gotta say, not great. Certainly not bad, but I the world of plentiful top notch IPAs, this one is not quite up to a snuff.

Bought at City Beer Store in SF about a month ago. Beer is pretty in a glass...a nice honey color with a sudsy white head. The smell isn't particularly strong but it has a nice piney profile. The taste is pleasing...smooth & citrusy, & the hops do stand out. Good overall flavor but like the smell not real distinct. Good mouthfeel, and at an for an 8% beer it drinks easy for the full 22 ounces. Would get again if it were readily available in Indy...unfortunately it's not.
