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.

On tap at the brewery. Deep golden color with decent head and light lacing. Aroma is nicely hoppy with mostly citrus and subtle pine. The pine is a bit stronger in the flavor. Nicely balanced with a good astringent bitterness in the finish. I brought a 4-pack home to CT for my friends to try. Also sent some Tree House beers back to La Cumbre for them to try

Pours a clear, dark amber with a noticeable chill haze. The creamy and dense white head leaves sheets of lace behind.
The aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, pineapple especially with notes of pine, some dankness and a hint of onion/garlic.
Taste is juicy, sweet and bitter. In that order. Lots of orange anf tropical fruit, a deep pith hit and a strongly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is medium and sticky.
