COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heyoka is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics in Chinook and Amarillo then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold, 7% ABV and ready to travel into the distance. The Heyoka resides in the opposite and is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder.

On tap, poured into a shaker. Grassy and herbal notes come through primarily on the nose with some caramel and bread crust. There’s also a slight cheese / lactose note in there. It pours a clear honey gold with a soft, creamy, foamy white head. A puffy, sparkling and sticky sheet lace is left behind and it retains a medium thick, soft ring with a dusty-thin surface layer. The oily textured, medium body beer has a soft, light, zippy carbonation. A citrus, toast, grass, and spice combination finishes this one. It’s nice, clean, and dry with a spicy and herby, bitter grapefruit peel, and toast in the aftertaste. Very easy drinking.

Sample at the brewery. Heyoka is a resinous dank old cheese hop bomb. Light copper gold with a solid medium body. Not my cup of tea but well done for all that.

Complex hop punch filled with bitterness and fruitiness. This is my kind of IPA! I got this in a growler from half acre. Brilliant beer. Nothing subtle in this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours bright orange with fluffy white cap like head. Heavy tropical fruit like orange, passionfruit and mango on the nose with some slight grassy notes too. Taste leads with the passionfruit and finishes with light bitterness and slightly sweet. Solid ipa.

maneliquor (3116) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
Can from Mikkeller webshop. Pours hazy bright orange with a thick white head. Nose is full of tropical fruits and mild herbs - pineapple, passionfruit, mango, nectarine. Taste is very passionfruit and melon forward with mild honey and a biscuity base. Not a stand out but decent

Pint can poured into a tulip glass. Nice floral scent of an IPA. Real hoppy taste, overall good IPA.

Tmoney99 (10681) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2014
Can. Poured clear golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is another change of pace solid beer.

PhillyCraft (3236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2014
Can shared with Bill, pours hazy orange with white head and lacing. Notes are orange juice and very bitter hops. Really dry and skinned out. Reminds me of an old southern tier or mongo. Smells like pineapple , thit.

CraftBeerLvr41 (82) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2014
A: Pale/light gold yellow color. Moderate sized white head, doesn’t stick too long. S: Subtle but really nice. Citrus upfront with some candied fruit and some subtle pine on the back-end. Reminds me of Daisy with some bready notes as well. T: Starts out really juicy with some citrus orange and grapefruit, then moves into a toasted breadiness. On the back-end you get some dryness with subtle fine. Pretty nice beer. M: light to medium body. Moderate bitterness. A little sweet but overall dry and crisp.
