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!

Pretty standard IPA. In the Black Hills this goes for $12 a 6 pack of cans. Was hoping for more. Much better IPA's out there at a better price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (2047) - 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 (10892) - 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

Not the best IPA, but the best Ive 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.

Can. Pours a clear, yellow-orange color with a soapy white head. Aroma is piney, some citrus, cereal, pennies. Taste is pretty light, some citrus, bitter. This is fairly bland, taste fades almost immediately. Maybe its old?
