    I really enjoyed the DIPA personally. Just malty enough, to me too many IIPA's go overboard on the malt and sometimes it overpowers the hops. Still yet to try the others though

    Finally found a bomber of the DIPA I had to pull out of the box at the store, enjoying it now. So far I have enjoyed the 3 Marbles I've found.

    Got DIPA, Double Wit, and Red in fridge, probably crack 'em this weekend. After I get off this Ska Mexican Logger and Odell St. Lupulin buzz.

    Does anyone know of a metro area store that has a fresh batch of their DIPA bombers? I'm trying to track one down to finish out a box I'm getting ready to send out but the three stores I've hit all only have bottles that appear to have been bottled on April 25th of this year. I'm not super strict on having to drink IPAs in a week or two but 5 months seems to be pushing it.

    What stores? Mr B's tends to have pretty fresh stuff. Unfortunately I don't know if they have any right now.

    Davidsons, Bubbles and some smaller store in Englewood that I can't remember the name of. I was going to check out Lukas on Monday and see what the dates on their bottles said.

    I've been trying to get some in for a couple of weeks with no luck. Maybe in mid-production.

    I think their Red might be the best in the country. The malts and hops are both huge and blend flawlessly.
    Until Odell resurrects the old Extra Special Red, I think this one takes the cake.

    The reserve ale (BA) was available at Lukas. They are big-time overachievers and flying under the radar for now.

    I'll take Odell's RED over Marbles without even thinking twice.

    Thought Marble's Red was solid but wasn't blown away by it. Perhaps it deserves a revisit...maybe checking it out in a different season will produce different results.

    Guess that's why it's all subjective because i think Marbles Red blows Odells away..

    This last year's batch of Odell's Red was one of my favorite beers, period, when fresh. So while I dount Marble's will be able to match up to that, it does appear as though Marble's Red deserves a second shot.

    Different strokes for different folks. They're both wonderful beers and I can definitely see how someone would prefer one to the other.

    I still the old ESR from Odell was pretty much godlike. Their seasonal Red is still great, but that malt profile for ESR was just something special. I might be dreaming or imagining this, but I believe they were planning on re-releasing it again as a bomber or limited 4-pack?

    I really enjoyed Marble Red, but IMO Odell Red is tough to beat! Have to try a side by side some time.

    Saw some Marble BA Ale in Coaltrain today - bomber for around $13 IIRC.

    I still have fond memories of the Extra Special Red and...if it makes a comeback, wow, just wow.

    Just grabbed a sixer of the Red, to reaquaint myself with it. My memory of this was pretty accurate, so far I am not a huge fan. Certainly decent but I envision it slow goings as I get through this sixer. All I really needed was a bottle or two of this to have scratched my itch.

    It's good, drink it. I've been thinking of grabbing another but to drink, not age.

    Just confirmed with the brewery. They cannot meet demand in New Mexico so they are pulling out of Colorado.

    Sad Panda. I've been drinking gratuitous amounts of IPA and Red.

    That kinda sucks. I still think Marble Red is the best hoppy red in the country. Maybe they'll be able to come back down the line. Santa Fe had a similar issue 6-7 years ago and they came back.

    They told me that they couldn't keep up with demand locally in New Mexico and they planned on returning to Colorado it's just a matter of when.

    In any case, good for them. I feel like they deserve to sell as much as they can, and I agree with their primary focus being their home market.

    NO!!!!!!

    What a punch to the gut.....their Oatmeal Stout quickly became one of my very favorites. I have had a consistent stockpile of it in my fridge every since I first discovered it a couple months back or so. Probably my favorite out of state beer on our shelves.....er, that was on our shelves. I will miss it greatly. The IPA will be missed too, but as long as I have Odell's IPA, I can manage that loss. I don't think there is a bottled Oatmeal Stout on our shelves that can match up to Marble's, personally. I respect their decision but I really hope when they can increase production, Colorado will be the first state they re-introduce themselves to.

    Might have to stop by the liquor store on my way home and grab a Marble Reserve Ale while it still is around. Had that thing in my hands a few times but have yet to pull the trigger on it. Might have to now as my farewell.

    agreed, good beers but they either dont seem to be moving very quickly or they cant keep us up on really fresh product. those first few weeks i was really liking them but it seemed to fall off pretty quick.

    we need less beers that dont sell on shelves. too much good stuff coming in to take up room w/ product that either doesnt move quickly enough or cant be received fresh.

    That is a bummer.

    I never have found them hard to find, always in a mix-six.
