22 oz. Bomber
Bottled On: 5/9/17

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice hazy dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight maltyness, nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, another pretty tasty brew from La Cumbre. Nice to see this one around here.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Cloudy golden yellow color with a short lived white head and good lacing. Smell of vanilla, pine and oranges. Silky feel. The taste is a bit boozy , with caramel, citrus, and lots of hoppy bitterness. Comes off like an imperial IPA.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Been wanting to try this for a long time now. Clear golden. Smells, as described, dank. Some tropical fruit behind the herbal and dank hops. Tastes of green, resiny, and citrusy hops. Sweet pale malt. Low bitterness. Medium body and a little sweet. Very good.

Big thanks to shuntstout for sending this bottle! Reviewed from (very) long-standing notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cycle Brewing pint glass.

A: Hazy gold, with average visible carbonation and a half-finger of white foamy head.

S: Dank hops up front (of course), with resin, grapefruit rind, grassy and herbal notes backing it up. Some bready malts underneath.

T: More citrus-forward than the nose suggested, mostly grapefruit and tangerine. Grassy and dank as well, with the bready malts adding a touch of sweetness (but with no caramel malt flavors to speak of). Finishes with dank and resinous flavors.

M: The body is about average, maybe tending towards the heavy side for style. Good carbonation sensation, the alcohol flavors are very well-hidden.

O: This was quite tasty. And it had more citrus flavors than I expected. Very enjoyable.

Bomber served chilled into a goblet.

Project Dank is a slightly hazy golden yellow color with thin white head.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with appropriate dankness.

Flavor is initially sweet but goes quickly bitter with a hop character that's difficult to describe. It's mildly fruity and citrusy but the dank weed character is predominant.

Mouthfeel is medium to light in body and nicely carbonated. It's balanced and drinkable.

Overall a very good and unique IPA that doesn't fit any particular mold.

22oz bottle from Albertson's (Santa Fe, NM). 8.49. Bottled 9/19/16. Served in a wine glass.

Pours a hazy orange with two fingers of white head. The consistent layer of surface haze spreads to a modest halo, leaving copious lacing in its wake.

The aroma is definitely dank with supporting notes of orange, pine and a light caramel malty note. Nice.

Taste follows the nose with a piney bitterness, orange rind, wet grass, subtle garlic dankness and some caramel malt towards the back end.

Medium light feel with plenty of tingly carbonation. Grass, peel and a little pine create a fairly bitter aftertaste.

Project Dank may not crack any of my "best of" losts but is thoroughly enjoyable. A balanced IPA with a slightly different hop profile than what I typically go for. This is certainly worth a try if you see it available.

22 oz bottle, bottled on 9/23/16. Pours slightly hazy straw gold with a medium rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is a little cracker malt and a bunch of peppery piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruit malt and a lot of spicy resiny piney dank hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice spicy resiny IPA.
