Notes / Commercial Description:
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

The dankest of dank IPAs. This is a potent beer with all the flavor and aroma one expects from an IPA, plus its ABV can knock you out after a couple/few. It is very delicious. I like to have one after a "session" beer, like Rudie from SKA. I cannot say enough great things about this beer from La Cumbre. It is totally worth seeking out.

What is there left that could be said about this beer? I've had it hundreds of times, I absolutely love it. It's hop and malt profile go together perfectly. Citrus, pine, and floral notes dominate the nose, and it's the perfect amount of bitterness. One of the best beers in NM (and anywhere) and its GABF gold medal is well-earned.
