3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
12oz can. Pretty shwaggy aroma. Shwaggy borderline off tones, brewhouse. Really weak brewing. Filtered, which might be the only thing that helps it. Antiquated caramel and toffee tones that pretty much no one wants in an IPA in 2017. More of a tan orange body than amber in my opinion. Drinkable, but on the edge. No real impressive hop tone, and an off aroma. Weak. Ron (4216) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2017
Can in WY. Pours light golden orange with small white head. Aromas of caramel malts, pine, and a little grapefruit. Flavors light hop bitterness, pine and grapefruit hop notes, and pale malts. crossovert (14008) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2017
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. tderoeck (10343) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2017

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.

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. jackl (8446) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2017
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. mike5326 (1786) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Poured from a can. Clear golden color, medium frothy white head. Dusty foot aroma. Light body with a bitter floral flavor with a bitter finish.

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 (3036) - 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.
