Robust mouthful of hops. Huge aroma of pine and fresh hops on the vine. Light bodied with a deep resiny bite. Pours with a tall snowy head in the Weizen glass, where the narrow neck gives a good concentrated nose. Some traces of biscuity malt, but it's just hops and more hops.

Rather bitter, not much relief in the way of malt. Clean but very simple. Long aftertaste of exactly the same hops as in the aroma and the first sip. A textbook example of hops on display: Columbus, Amarillo, and Centennial.

Bottle dated 3/23/2012, fairly fresh. Bright orange-yellow color, clear, good head. Farily hoppy smell to it, not quite dank or piney and yet not really tropical, herbal I guess. Taste is bitter, hoppy and a little chewy malt action going on as well. Overall this is a solid IPA and one I'll probably buy again.

Tasted from bottle. Pours bright orange with a frothy and rocky white head that has serious retention. Nose is primarily resin, citrus, and pine hops, but there is a solid backbone of malt and some mango and guava tropical fruitiness as well. The citrus, pine, and resin all come through very nicely on the palate, but the malt seems to be non-existant until the finish. The tropical fruits including orange come through nicely on the palate as well. The body is light, and the carbonation is very lively with a long bitter hops finish. This really is a very good single IPA.

Reviewed on 1/17/2010. Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow-orange with a small, foamy white head. Aroma of sweaty, grassy hops. Yum! Flavor of citrus, grassy hops. Palate is a little weaker than I'd prefer. Very similar to the DIPA just a touch lighter in palate. Quite tasty and drinkable nonetheless!

Thanks orefu for the bottle. 22 oz, no freshness date.

Poured into a shaped pint, this is a very nice looking beer. It's a light copper color with quite a bit of haze. The head has a great formation with very tiny bubbles and great lacing.

The aroma is a clean mix of fresh green hops that create a nice citrus aroma. The label lists Columbus, Amarillo, and Centennial as the hops used in this beer, with Centennial being the highlight of the aroma. No yeast character to speak of.

This beer has a nice, below average bitterness and the distinct, herbal, grassy hop flavor of Columbus hops. Good amount of fruitiness that tastes like fruity pebbles. The hop finish actually contains more flavor than bitterness, and it lingers a ton.

Nice, creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation and almost no fizz. The beer has good drinkabilty, this was an easy bomber.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid citrus and herbal hop qualities all around.

Aroma is somewhat subdued. Mix of grassiness and some fruit, but it is more in the background.
Somewhat cloudy with an amber of golds and hint of red. Smallish head with some lacing.
Quite apparent bitterness that doesn't overpower, but always reminding me it's there throughout the drink. Enough malt heft support. Mix of flavors in the hop taste similar to the aroma.
Good feel, soft and full.

Clear copper fluid fits easily into Bruery Tulip with one swift pour. Head is white foam with small soapy bubbles. Very little lacing to speak of.

Strong hop aroma greats you upon opening the bottle... Very pineapple, apple, yes, apple, grapefruit, and the rest of your typical west coast IPA aromas. Very buttery and smooth.

Very smooth and quite bitter... Just as an IPA should be. It could stand to be more creamy and thick, but I'll take it. Very nice tropical citrus favor. Thin body with over carbonation.

This brew is all over the board... Very good flavor and aroma, but struggles lie within the mouthfeel... A very good first offering from Marble, welcome to Colorado!

12oz can (extra!) received in a recent trade with Bennetj17... Thanks a bunch Bennet!!

Pours clear golden... foamy white head... decent lacing with only okay retention.

Nose picks up pretty big spruce with juicy tropical fruits... no citrus surprisingly, interesting... a bit too much pale maltiness mutes the hops a bit IMO.

Flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma perfectly... very balanced... very drinkable... not the best IPA ever, but certainly crushable.

All 3.75's.

Thanks again Bennet... I hope you like your beers as much as I am digging mine!!

Yellow and light amber colors swirl, leaving a full inch of head with average retention and lace. Aroma only leans hoppy when uber fresh, after that a malty contingent comes around towards the back end of the six pack.

Mixture of good hoppy c hops and heat. Balanced in terms of American ipa with the malt, pine and grapefruit, bitterness etc. . .

Its a pretty straightforward kind of ipa. When you can get it for $1.50 a bottle, its worth it, when fresh.
