COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop aroma and flavor dominate this IPA. However, the malt character of this deep amber colored ale nicely balances the hop component thus avoiding a harsh bitterness. A truly quaffable beverage!

On tap in Sioux Falls. No detailed notes - average IPA, maybe a little more malty than some might like for the style.

Art (2310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Can thanks to Marc. Pours a clear yellow orange with a white head. Aromas of grassy hops and wet leaves with a mild hint of citrus. Taste is medium bitterness. Body is medium to light. Pretty unremarkable but nothing wrong with it.

Awktoberfest (336) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Can. No date. Bland. Super light thin body. Very stale/ muted hop flavor and taste. Not super enjoyable first South Dakota beer. I'll chalk it up to being old and try em again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (8679) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Pour on tap at Independence Ale House, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, pine, grass, herbal notes into a bit of bread, biscuit, some spice. Taste was a mix of orange, more pine, resin, grass into lots of spice, some bread and malty dough, finishing fairly bitter.
