Bottle from PeteinSDVir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Awesome aroma dripping of resinous hop oils. The flavor is a little lighter than the aroma and has some more fruit than the aroma would lead you to believe. Grapefruit surrounded by cannabis. A DIPA aroma with a lighter IPA flavor and body. Good stuff.
Pours a clear orange yellow with a thick head from a bottle. Nice to get a 6-pack for $15. Sweet hops and apricot is the aroma, very nice. Flavor is a really nice sweet hop on the back of the tongue. This was a great recommendation by the beer guy at Cardinal in Niles. I would have thought this beer to be more than 7%. Tsekouratos (603) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - MAR 29, 2015
355 ml bottle from Bierdeluxe.de, Germany. Copper color, clear, with a thin white head. Aromas of flowers, caramel and lemon. Taste is mildly bitter with orange, citrus, lemon, caramel and some pine and grapefruit. Light body with less than medium carbonation. pras (602) - Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2012
This should be the reference for an IPA. Tastes amazing! I wish it had better availability here in Maryland. Really nice hop balanced with the malt backbone. A joy to drink. DavidWoodruff (601) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Nice looking slightly hazy orange with decent white head. Aroma is dominated piney/citrusy hops. Flavors are much the same as the aroma. Firm malt body and aggressive, but pleasant, hop bitterness. Great example of a West Coast IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 This stuff is awesome. A pretty under the radar IPA in SD from what I can see. It comes and goes - when it’s here, try and snatch a pint of it. Very sharp and dry finish, great pine taste, very crisp. Leaves you wanting the next sip. A must try - usually always is at the brewery to taste arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours a light orange color with a thick white head. Aromas are amazing citrus floral hops are overwhelming. The taste is exactly the same, citrus, orange rind, grapefruit, bitter hops, but not over bitter just about perfect. Wonderful brew. ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Courtesy of NorCalgrowler. Lots of citrus fruits in the nose, potent hop and pine bouquet. Smell is fantastic. Pours a nice orange color with a full fluffy white head, dissipates to a persistent thin head. Flavor is full of hop character and bitterness, honey, pine, fruit, and a good malt presence to balance. Medium body, a bit resiny and sweet, smooth with good carbonation. Overall a great beer, very well balanced with hop additions in all the right places. toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
P: A nice golden orange pour with a thick white head. S: Oranges, tropical fruits, pineapples, grapefruit, slight caramel, but its pretty much hops all the way. T: Pineapples, some tropical fruits, slight pine, some bready cracker malt, but thats really hidden, pretty much it just pounds you with hop. M: Carbonation sting, crispy, with slight bitterness with a grapefruit sticky finish. O: Just a wave of hops. Fashawn (597) - ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Aroma elegante e pulito, di aghi di pino, frutta tropicale, un pelo di pompelmo ed un filo di caramello. Ambrata carica con schiuma compatta e persistente. In bocca base lieve di pane dolce, frutta esotica, dolce, pompelmo, ed un bel finale agli aghi di pino. Carbonatazione media, quasi liscia, bel retrogusto sempre agli aghi di pino e pompelmo. Invoglia alla bevuta, corpo lieve. Ottima.
