Poured a deep orange color into a tulip glass. Lots of citrus on the nose, but grapefruit really stood out. This was intense! From front to back layers of fruit, hops, pine and malts. Bitter, hoppy, fantastic.

Pours an orange-amber. Bright, fruity aromas, primarily grapefruit. Taste starts off with a solid citrus tang, followed by pine and a sour-bready aftertaste. Notes range from orange and grapefruit to caramel and biscuit. I really liked the combination of flavors, though nothing knocked me off my feet. But in New Mexico, where it's all over the place, it's my go-to.

Sampled at SAVOR 2017. This had a great blend of dank and citrus, very bitter and clean and crisp. It could use a bit more depth, but it was very nearly top tier.

This beer award winning IPA is a real treat. Discovered upon during New Mexico travels, available throughout the state in can and draft. It's worth seeking out for sure. At 100 IBUs, this IPA is perfect for fans of this type.

Canned from TJs ABQ.

Picked up a single from Kings Beer and Wine 10-21-17 for $2.99. Canned on 10-12-17, best by 1-10-18.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is grapefruit forward, very nice.

Taste is caramel and pale malts base with a huge amount of grapefruit and pine and a little orange.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall this is a nice IPA that is definitely worth a repeat visit!

While Pliny may be the benchmark, this beer, at exactly the same IBUs and nearly the same malt and hop profile, is fantastic. Very close to Pliny and just so freakin’ good. And it comes in a can. And you can actually find it.

Dark gold and hazy in color. Nice lingering head that laces well. Abundant scents of pineapple, orange-peel, and a hint of biscuit. Outstanding, deep flavors of grapefruit, pomegranate, pineapple, wet pine, old road and honeysuckle on the front palate, with a great, balanced finish of malty goodness. Love the taste of this beer. Has a medium feel, overall one of my favorites.

Pours a clear orange with a white head. Smells of malt, caramel, hops, and some citrus. Tastes of very fresh and mildly bitter hops, sweet caramel malts, and citrus zest. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a very fresh and delicious IPA from a new brewery for me.

Deep gold with thick head and sticky lacing. Notes of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit. The taste follows the nose, this sucker is a hop bomb, full on flavor with a bite of pine and dryness. A very very good IPA, blended with some citrus and min sweetness, this is a hoppy good beer.
