Small to maybe medium sized head quickly dies to a quarter inch froth then slowly settles to a nice lacing above a cloudy well carbonated washed out pale honey colored beer.

Light pine and even lighter citrus with a bit of malts coming through in the aroma.

Light citrus hops are paired with a light roasted malt in the taste of the IPA.

Dryish aftertaste that is slightly bitter without much taste remaining with this medium bodied beer.

Initial hops aroma seems to dissipate and by the half way point of a glass of this IPA I was straining to find the hops aroma and there wasn't much left in the taste either. This beer started out very promising but that went away quicker than the beer.

Pours a clear golden-orange color with a tight, white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of pine and citrus notes.

Tastes of the citrus hops up front layered on a solid malt base. Hops lead off with pine and grapefruit as well as some slightly herbal qualities. Malts come through next and add a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted bread. Finishes fairly dry with a bit of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid IPA, but not anything special.

Can't get enough of this IPA always find myself grabbing a six pack of these cans in Albuquerque.

From a 12 oz can (dated April 7, 2015) into a shaker pint glass. Reviewed from notes dated June 21, 2015.

A-The beer is pretty light in color with a yellow/straw hued murky liquid sitting below and nearly white head of foam. The head is sticky and clings to the glass in chunks.

S-The aroma is fruity and hop heavy. I sniff some apricot, pineapple, floral notes, lemon, and very little in the way of malts. Bitterness is lower than many IPAs and I don't get much pine or grapefruit.

T-The taste is similar. A unique, fruity hop flavored mixture but without a lot of the pine or grapefruit that you might expect. Balance comes in the form of some light toffee malt flavors.

M-The body is on the lighter side of things, but the beer has a bit of a chewy feel. Strange.

O-My notes say "odd" a few times and that is probably the best way to describe this beer. It is quite hoppy, but not very bitter or aggressive to my palate. My can was not super fresh when I tasted, but you would expect the fruitiness of the hops to have faded, not the malts, but this beer tasted like the malts had given up. Odd. Anyway, this is not my favorite IPA, but it has some nice, unique fruit flavors.
