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.

22oz bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruits and resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits with a big resiny piney floral hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery with low carbonation.

Overall, a solid DIPA.

Got from GabeM, thanks! 22oz into tulip. from notes

A - Light to golden with fluffy white head, decent retention and lacing.

S - The quintessential bitter hop smell, smells very piney fresh.

T - Pine needles, resiny bitter hop forward taste. Some citrus fruits like orange and a bit of lemon. Very little malty sweetness, which is usually typical of DIPAs.

M - Moderate body, kinda slick.

D - A good drinker. Drinks more like a very hoppy single IPA. Would benefit from a bit more malt backbone. I would definitely drink this one again though!

Bottled 3/9/2012.

Bomber served cold into a pint glass.

Marble's DIPA is a pale golden yellow color with great clarity. The head is thick and long-lasting and leaves some nice lacing as it settles.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with some citrus, pine, and grapefruit.

Flavor is surprisingly bitter and a big alcohol heat. The malt is mild in flavor and light in color. This is clearly one of those beers that only has malt to have something there to ferment because it's all about the hops. Very big on the grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Unfortunately, the alcohol burns like 10% even though it's only 8%.

Overall a decent DIPA but not one that I would get again.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Thanks to papollo for this bottle!

These New Mexican brews have been quite nice so far. This one pours a hazy amber orange topped by about a finger of white suds. The nose comprises a hefty blend of pine and citrus, with a light bit of onions and nutty caramel thrust to the background. The taste gets rid of the onions (thankfully), focuses on a nice synthesis of the pine and citrus, and maintains the light bit o' nutty caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light carbonation and a nearly drying finish. Overall, a nice DIPA, easy to drink, but not something that I would continually clamor for. More of a nice occasional brew.

A - The beer pours a little over a finger of slightly orange/off-white head. The bubbles are good size in the middle and tiny on the sides. Head sticks around for a while. The body on this thing is super cloudy and mostly orange. Some brown in there as well. Strong lacing.

S - Smells pretty amazing. Some citra hops, malty backbone, and floral notes. Really a pretty typical DIPA aroma, but it is done very well and quite nice.

T - Again pretty typical. Good hop characters to balance out strong all around flavors. The finish is a little harsh and bitter. Pine, malt, and bread.

M - The feel is nice on the tongue. Good carbonation and body. Just a little mouth puckering bitterness.

O - Quite nice and everything you expect out of a DIPA. Could be a little more smooth on the flavors.

Pale gold color with wispy white head and a fairly thick collar. Good lacing. Aroma is grassy, floral, slight citrus, light malt sweetness. Taste is citrusy, grassy and floral. Nice hop bite on the tongue, pretty dry. Medium body and high carbonation. Not at all a bad brew.

A 22 ounce bottle from EgadBananas; thank you! Bottled on 12/17/2012, and poured into a DFH signature glass.

Pours a hazy tangerine color with dark copper hues. A nice, two-finger-wide, fluffy, pure-white head develops atop and leaves behind large quantities of lacing; large collections of bubbles continually coat the surface. A very good looking DIPA. Aroma is of spicy, earthen hops, some freshly cut grass and cultivated earth, pine resin, and orange and grapefruit citruses. Flavor starts with the hops, spicy at first before the earthen notes kick in. Pine, grass, and wet earth come through in the middle, and the grapefruit citrus finishes it up. The mouthfeel starts off lively, bitter, and well carbonated, but finishes somewhat watery and thin. Overall, this is a great DIPA that is very easy to drink. Great looking, good aroma, and solid flavor; well done!

Poured from a bomber into a Town Hall tulip on 2/27/11

Pours a golden hazy color typical of most IPA/DIPA's with tons of frothy white head.

Smells of citrus hops and sweet tones... I think mango mixed with the sweet malt makes this very pleasant in the aroma category.

Taste is less impressive lots of hops and bitterness but it does taste good. Citrus is apparent but its not really complex IMHO.

Mouthfeel is light weighted and the resin of the hops moves through ¥our mouth relatively quickly compared t many other IPA/DIPA's.

Drinkability: I will visit this again in the future when its more fresh. I think this beer has more to offer but I got it in a trade as an extra and had it put away for a month before I tried it. I like it but I need to try it when the hop notes are really fresh and apparent. I think that would put it over the top.

A solid offering from these guys. Lots of tasty hops on the nose with a very drinkable midbody that has a mellow finish. Big beer that shows a good balance and maturity. The beer never shows the high ABV . One of the best beers in NM from one of the best brewerys in NM
