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!

Pretty standard IPA. In the Black Hills this goes for $12 a 6 pack of cans. Was hoping for more. Much better IPA's out there at a better price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can to tulip. Pours mostly clear amber with heavy sediment, white dissipating ring head. Aroma of citrus, earth, and some pine wood. Taste of same with some candi sweetness and orange/grapefruit bitter finish. Kind of flat for style.

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

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2015
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.

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