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.

16 oz can. Excellent. Pours hazy golden with a nice white head that sticks to the glass. Citrus and floral-forward on the nose. Flavor is very nice. Very citrusy, little dank weed, little grassy. Feel like I could session this, but that might turn out bad.

tmoreau (2422) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft special of the day at the Map Room, and dispensed to a shaker with a slightly hazed, golden color, a frothy & persistent head of white foam, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was expressive & perfumey, with notes of grapefruit, peach, maybe a little tropical scent, light resin, and a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, with appropriate carbonation, the taste offered smooth crustiness to the malt, and earthy, rindy hop bitterness that incorporated a lingering astringency, added to some decent dryness at the finale. Stronger and dryer than the Daisy, but I liked it just as well.

On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a great big pine note with a bit of resin and a touch of bread. Flavor has same strong pine note with a hint of grapefruit and resin.

Can. Pours a pale golden-orange, big frothy white head, solid retention, really nice lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, dankness (lotta guava, mango, passion fruit, cat piss).Mouth is medium bodied, dry and fruity hops taste as described in nose, medium bitterness, in addition to the tropical fruit also getting some melon and a soapy note at the back end, bitter finish. Nice IPA boys. Let’s go Rangers!

1/21/2014: Half Acre Heyoka IPA... Awesome IPA with lots of tropical fruit (pineabpple, papaya, apricot) and pine, ample bitterness, sticky pine hops; AMAZING aroma of juicy pineapple, tangerine, and some mango; sadly, this beer is not available in Ohio. 16 fl. oz. can shared by dirhauge. Thanks Paul! Rating #25 for this beer.

tectactoe (1855) - Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Can: Thanks, Tom! Slightly hazy, copper-orange body with a big, chunky, & foamy eggshell cap that sits on top & leaves lots of fat lacing behind. Aroma is notes of bitter, soapy pine needles, floral perfume, brash grapefruit peel, tangerine zest, & very light toasted malt sugars. Taste has more bitter pines, pungent perfume notes, pine... Rose-y flower pedals mid-palate with some sweeter notes of orange flesh & grapefruit pith in the finish. Some light malt sugars in the aftertaste with most of the bitterness hitting up front. Soft bodied, rolling carbonation. Quite a nice, bitter IPA. I prefer Daisy Cutter by a large margin, but this is some good stuff. I was surprised to find that this does not have Centennial hops!

hombrepalo (1828) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2014
16oz can poured into a plastic cup at Happy Village. The aroma is a hoppy citrus. Pours an orange color with a mostly diminishing white head and substantial lacing. The taste is sweet up front and hoppy on the finish. NICE! Fruity sweetness initially and citrusy on the tale end. Nice balance. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation.
