Great beer, dank, dank, dank. Everyone is talking about La Cumbre in the ABQ but Marble is killing it and this beer is proof. Wish they distributed to Colorado.

Poured into a snifter.

A - deep golden color with a bit of white head on top that is subsiding relatively quickly.

S - a ton of hops, but some sweetness as well. A smith bitterness that smells like fresh cut grass.

T - just as the nose predicted - a ton of hop bite, but it's evened out nicely with a bit of malty sweetness on the end.

M - feels good!

O - this is a damn fine DIPA and one I'm very glad to have access to 24/7.

Poured from a 22 oz. Into standard pint glass.

A - nice copper color with a nice head that stays a while.

S - wow! Immediate grapefruit and piney scents. I hope the taste is as good as the smell!

T- oh man... This goes into my top 10 favorite, prob top 5. Everything I hoped for but never expected from a brewery in new Mex.

D- all day everyday. 8% and tasty.

This was tasty! It pours a golden color with long lasting lacing. Harmoniously hopped with bitter intensity, with an aroma like a fresh, beery grapefruit. There’s a big upfront bitterness on the flavor with fresh squeezed grapefruit hops dominating. No malt backbone to speak of, this is all hoppy goodness. Finishes dry, piney and resiny.

Being a big fan of the regular IPA from Marble, I'd been wanting to give this one a shot. I was not disappointed at all! Fantastic color when poured from the bottle and really nice lacing down the glass. Very similar (duh) to the regular IPA, but has a little more kick to it - which is really enjoyable. Maybe I've just had too many of the regular IPA :)
Would definitely like to try this one again. Worth a purchase if you run across it.

Brought a bottle of this great DPA home from a recent trip to Albuquerque. Shares it last night with a buddy and it was as good as I remembered from New Mexico. I was a bit concerned that my memories of the beer were bolstered by a great weekend in the southwest. No worry, it is truly a great DPA.

Pours with a fluffy/creamy eggshell colored head. Nice retention and a decent amount of lacing. Bright gold amber color with excellent clarity.

Aroma is wonderful and a fresh citrus hop explosion. Very floral and bright.

Truly a "double" version of their standard IPA (which is also awesome) Bright citrus flavors hit you immediately. Then a wonderful cracker/toasted malt flavor provides perfect balance. Reminds me a touch of Pliny the Elder. There is a similar tone to the malt flavors. At some point, I'd like to try these next to each other. Finish is bright, fresh and floral again. Just wonderful.

Mouth feel is medium/light in body, fresh and also a little dry on the finish. Not quite crisp.

A wonderful beer to drink. I'll get more, oh yes, I will.

This must have changed recently.... First of all they need to name this beer because it is incredible... my rating was never as high on this as it is now (May, 2015) this is right up there with some of the best DIPAs I've ever had. The nose is unreal - lots of east coast - juicy qualities to it. Awesome brew!

Excellent IPA from Marble. Tried it back to back with the standard IPA at their tap room in Santa Fe, NM. Got a growler of it, too. Appearance is dark amber with head that lasts to the last sip. Nose is extremely fruity and sweet, and the taste is similar, with a bunch of hops, but still a dark malty feel underneath. It seems to be almost the same recipe as their IPA, just intensified. Marble Brewery is highly recommended!

This is a great DIPA. Sure there are more hoppy ones, more bitter. More abv. But this one is nice and unbalanced to a good degree.

Pours a light amber and gold color. Thick head rocked up and formed a center piece. Lacing is great.

Aroma smacked me in the schnauz as soon as I opened it. Citrus up front, pine in the back. Soft biscuit throughout. A bit sweet.

This beer tastes great. A very balanced profile between pine, citrus and resin. The malt backbone keeps it from being 'green vine-ish' with a touch of sweet biscuit. Some phenols here and there. I really like this beer. A 22oz bomber is going down faster than a Colfax "escort" on New Years
