Not a bad IPA. This beer is dominated by the pine tar astringency that I really don’t care for, but otherwise it is well made. On the smaller side, its still has flavor, body, alcohol and is well attenuated. This beer is worth trying if you happen to find it.

Not the best IPA, but the best I’ve had from South Dakota (my first). A bit on the astringent side and unfortunately unbalanced, favoring the piney hops. Tried with Jess at Yia Yias after the Omaha-Lincoln ride in 2016.

Can. Pours a clear, yellow-orange color with a soapy white head. Aroma is piney, some citrus, cereal, pennies. Taste is pretty light, some citrus, bitter. This is fairly bland, taste fades almost immediately. Maybe its old?

Aroma of citrus and pine. Good hop profile that gives way to a buttery maltiness. Not bad really.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a ear copper body with a one finger frothy white head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is equal parts citrusy hops and caramel maltiness. The flavor is pretty nicely hoppy and bitter up front, lots of grapefruit-like citrus notes. The finish fades slightly in the more malt driven side of things. Lingering sweet caramel maltiness after the hops fade away. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent stuff, I could do with a little less caramel sweetness, but it’s pretty drinkable.
