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!

Not a bad IPA. This beer is dominated by the pine tar astringency that I really don’t care for, but otherwise it is well made. On the smaller side, its still has flavor, body, alcohol and is well attenuated. This beer is worth trying if you happen to find it.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Draught at the Crow Peak Brewing Co, Spearfish, SD. Clear deep golden color with a small white head. Really English style IPA aroma with fruit tea and floral hops, sweetness and malt. The flavor is sweet, bitter, floral hoppy and malty. A bit unbalanced and way too English. Low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewery. Nose is floral and bitter pine. Tastes quite astringent, you get some pine, floral, dish soap, grass. Bitter finish. Overall pleasant though

Can muled back by Nick on the wild west shag wag tour pour avg gold with moderate white head. Nose pine, slight vegetal, hint of fruit. Taste light bitter up front, pine, some sweet malt. Light sweet fruit. A little better as it warms. Light bitter finish. Another state down.

Not the best IPA, but the best I’ve had from South Dakota (my first). A bit on the astringent side and unfortunately unbalanced, favoring the piney hops. Tried with Jess at Yia Yias after the Omaha-Lincoln ride in 2016.
