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!

355ml can. At last, a SD tick, missed out on ND though. Pours a clear gold with a bright white head. Aroma is toffee and herbs, some citrus. Flavor is a bit melony, herbs, bready malt, not super bitter, searching for more bittenress.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 20/VII/17 - 12Fl. Oz. can from a trade, shared @ home - BB: no date on the can (2017-1052) Thanks to Ryan for the trade!

New State Tick!
Clear orange beer, creamy irregular off-white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty sweet, some honey, oxidised? Ripe tropical fruits, some citrus, something sweet, malty. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sweet, honey, malty, grains, bitter, very harsh bitterness, some tropical fruits in the distance. Aftertaste: bitter, bit resinous, piny, citrus, grapefruit, passion fruit touch, very hoppy, dry finish. Is this too old or just not very good? (the other ratings suggest the latter)

Can shared with Adamnowek and tderoeck. Many thanks! Hazy colour, white foam. Lots of pine and citrus, but also sweet malty. Easy drinkable. Not bad.

adamnowek (2814) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Can with tderoeck and JefVerstraete. Clear and bold golden with a dense little head. Smells like pine needles, honey, kumquat, and a bit of fresh topsoil. Taste is somewhat sweet and malty, so this might not be the freshest can this side of the Atlantic.

Keg @ JL Beers, South Fargo. Gold pour with a lasting white head. Fairly neutral nose. A kiss of pine cone, resin. A bit of lemon peel. Fairly blunt bitterness. Cake batter body and honey. Drinks heavier than it actually is.

Luvystypotables (1991) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2017
A dusty mineral hop aroma, pours a clear orange color with a thin short lasting head. Dry mouth feel and a mineral hop taste with a bitter chalky finish.

islay (2805) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
12 oz. can, consumed on 12-29-16. Labeled as “Crow Peak 11th Hour IPA.” Pours golden with a large amount of cream-colored head. Clear liquid. Good lacing. Fresh aroma features scents of golden raisin, lemon, and grapefruit. Somewhat chemical in flavor. A bit of cream. Woodchip and melon. Some bitterness. Medium body. Forgettable palate effects. Overall, on the right track but has a ways to go.

jb (3267) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Bright fruity nose. English low bite malty taste to this. Dry finish that lingers is nice. Very drinkable. Very boring. Thanks for the trade and another South Dakota beer Ron!

2.4
popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 24, 2016
12 oz can. The beer is bright gold in color. Perfectly clear. White head, fairly thick. Some lacing. Piney hops with light peachy fruitiness. Pretty mild. Pale malt sweetness in the background. Taste has assertive bitterness. Very bland hop flavor in the taste. Just some pine resin. Light malt sweetness right up front. Finishes dry and bitter. Light feel. Not good.
