Beer of the Week: Marble IPA

20130712-155620.jpg

Marble Brewery – Albuquerque, NM
India Pale Ale – 6.8% ABV

Immediately after college, I lived in Albuquerque for a year. And I got to know Marble Brewery WELL. Luckily, it’s available up here in Fort Collins, and one of my favorite easy-drinking IPA’s.

It has a nice copper color – typical of a single IPA, nothing special, but certainly not ugly. It’s sadly bland on the nose. There’s a bit of orange in there, piney bitterness, but not too much else. But the taste is spot on. Orange peel. Lots of orange, actually. Definitely some mango. Great tropical fruit notes. Great carbonation, good lacing, and goes down like like a session ale. A bit light in body, but that’s part of what makes Marble IPA such a great summer beer.
