Received a bottle from my bro @Sunsjammer last weekend after his recent vacation in New Mexico. Picked up in Santa Fe. Bottled on 4/1/15.

Beer poured golden orange into the Spiegelau IPA glass and did not generate any head like this glass normally does.

Nose is catty and citrusy goodness.

Taste is a huge malt backbone with tropical Sauvin, pine, and citrus blending in very nicely.

Mouthfeel is full and moderately carbonated for a semi refreshing and smooth feel.

Overall a delicious beer that is worth seeking out if you are in the northern New Mexico area!

Not sure of the brew date but was hoping for a lot more from this one. More like a barleywine than an IPA and lacking any of the distinctive flavor Nelson Sauvin is noted for.

22 bottle poured into snifter bottled 4/1/15

A: great clarity orangish hue very cold so not much head second pour might have more

S: I'm getting a light rotten stone fruit smell, comes clearer as kumquat and overripe cantaloupe, honeydew and a little bit of mango

T: a lot of that overripe cantaloupe kumquat and mango come out strongly in the taste but the beer has a dose of bitterness and residual sugar sweetness with just a touch of malt. Almost like some grape bitterness.

M: Very syrupy this beer is going to lay on your tongue

O: Fantastic beer, this is by far one of my favorite hops and La Cumbre just showcases it perfectly the beer is complex and delicious bursting with an almost overripe melon taste.

Wanted to love this beer. Too boozy and not enough hop goodness to balance thing out.
