Our big, bold double IPA for lovers of the hop. We employ loads of Warrior, Simcoe, and Galena hops in this wonderfully bitter and aromatic brew. This beer is dedicated to the War Dogs that aid and protect our brave troops.

Draft at SD Strong Ale Fest 10. Slightly hazy golden orange, off-white head. Grapefruit, lots of hops, citrus, and bits of bready malt. Mostly on the citrus hops side. Good DIPA, glad to try it.

Gift from southern Johnny. WOW! A beautiful hazy orange pour with a nose of grapefruit, pine and orange peel. A sweet malt, piney taste. Blended perfect with a crisp hoppy finish. Great.
