Comes in dark yellow, produces about an inch of white head. Aroma is difficult to discern, seems hop muted, but no bottle dating, so who knows what effect age had on this. Either way, its on the brewery for its lackluster existence, but you can still tell there is some degree of dry hopping that goes down.

Taste is the usual high caramel, high bitterness double ipa. Citrus, pine, usual descriptors. Its better than average, but hardly novel in its approach. This is prolly better than average because they keep it just a hair above ipa/imperial ipa territory into double.

Resinous.

On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

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.

A- Hazy copper-orange body, one finger white head, good retention time, not much lacing.

S- Citrus, floral notes, grain, caramel, toffee. Noticeably sweeter and a bit boozy in comparison to the standard IPA.

F- Citrus, caramel, toffee, pine. The sweetness is a bit offputting in comparison to the standard IPA. A bit less balance to it.

M- Medium bodied, smooth with a mild heat to it that is fairly pleasant. Good carbonation, very non-descript bitter aftertaste.

O- Not a particularly memorable DIPA, I expected a bit more complexity and bitterness after trying the standard IPA.

Half pour at the Santa Fe Taproom arrives in a slender-based glass that widens near the top.

Nice creamy pale white head a half finger thick quickly skedaddles leaving bubbly lace in its wake. The brew is cloudy golden and amber with a blonde hue at the base. 4.25

Incredible sweet fruitiness is part citrus and part berry. Pretty delightful. 4.25

There's a spicy hop flavor and hop oil flavor that feel like chewing a hop, but light berry and citrus seep in a mellow the flavor out. The finish is sweet caramel and grassiness. 4.25

Such a number of sensations here: spicy, sweet and smooth, bitter, creamy, and bubbly. It seems to hot all the bases and then some. 4.5

Sleeper DIPA. Hold this up to the IPA you idolize and I'll bet you'll have doubts.

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!
