I am really surprised by this beer. I was expecting an average ipa but this hit a home run. Marble IPA is a great ipa that is superbly balanced. Get this if you can. I wish I could.

Clear, golden tinged body; lively carbonation; one-finger thick, white head. Huge pine and citrus aroma; pungent. Nice grain flavor balanced with a crisp hop bitterness; orange rind. Medium body; wet yet leaves a dry finish on the palate.

A very fine, crisp and juicy IPA. There is an even-keeled yet complex balance and depth to this beer that is most intriguing and very, very satisfying. A must try IPA...

Another solid IPA out of Albuquerque, NM. Marble is now one of the 'larger' craft brewers, but they are still putting out a solid product. Nice, straightforward IPA with enough malt to play against good west coast bitterness. Some might think it's still harsh, but they are wrong. Try it.

Dark gold draft pour with thin white head; little lace. Citrus hop nose. Grapefruit and grassy flavors; Lite mouthfeel and bitter, citrusy, almost tangy tongue coating. Bitter citrus finish.

Review copied and pasted from notes, 6/16/15

A: Lightly hazy, golden orange with some apricot and honey tones - pours with a medium, white head - fades to a wispy cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

S: Bright, juicy, dare I say "modern" hop profile - tangerine and ruby red grapefruit flesh - floral citrus - some pine, and some wet, dank notes - hop pellets - lightly spicy - some pale malts, hints of caramel, some light bread, grains

T: Hoppy, citrusy, and easy drinking - juicy tangerine flesh with grapefruit and floral citrus - hint of pith - some hoppy spiciness, pine, and some dank flavors - hints of stone fruits - pale malts, light bread, finishes somewhat dry

M: Medium body, smooth with some pith, nicely carbonated, dry finish

O: My mouth is full of marbles today

This is a solid IPA that I would drink again if I ever saw it on the East Coast... Speaking of which, the combination of Chinook and Mosiac hops (as listed on the can - pretty cool), vaguely reminds me of Trillium. Hmmmm... Maybe that's why I find this endearing.

Thought I saved one for review. Alas I didn't. This beer had the perfect balance of caramel, breadyness & tropical fruits. This was my favorite beer from my trip.

Found a bottle 6 days after I got back, didn't get treated well, sadness, still has a great nose, but a bit catty, also plenty of pineapple, some of that breadyness still there!
