Notes/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. Pure hoppiness!

Poured from the 12oz. can into a Crow Peak "can" pint glass.

Pours a lovely, clear light copper with one finger of head that leaves some spotty lacing.

The aroma I get is mostly pine with some bread, grass and a little citrus underneath.

The taste is big, piney hops right up front with a little spiciness as well then a bit of juicy sweet followed by a lingering grassy bitterness that stays on the tongue.

The mouthfeel is thin to medium.

Overall, I think this is a very good IPA, especially if you lean to the pine, resinous flavors. Get it fresh and you've got a very good beer.

Can provided by LiverBelly - thanks. Named after the 11th Hour Gulch in Spearfish Canyon where the walls are so narrow and high that it receives only 1 hour of sunlight each day. Hope to visit one day.

A: Pours a clear goldenish copper with a thin (1/4-inch) slightly off-white head which fades quickly to the rim leaving some spotty lace.

N: Pine forest and grainy malts with some mild floral and herbal notes.

T: Mainly follows the nose with piney hops, crackers, and malts

M: Moderate body and light carbonation. Slightly resiny with a dry and bitter grassy finish.

O: Refreshing, but don't expect a hop monster. Could not figure out the canning date above the bar code (2 10 27 A 2 B A). Would like to try this really fresh.

Small to medium off white head slowly settles above a clear bright copper golden colored beer.

Nice but light hops aroma of cut grass and even lighter mountain pine.

Nice hops bite to the taste with the pine coming more to the forefront and bringing some of the tall-grass aspects with it.

Dryish aftertaste with the hops bite sticking around with this medium bodied IPA.

Nice hops bite to this beer without trying to be west coast or old school, it finds a nice happy place somewhere in between and I like it.
