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!

A good beer, but the hops were not my favorite. Really earthy, which some people may like, but I prefer pine and citrus flavors. It reminded me of early 2000's east coast IPA made with english hops. What I liked most about this beer was how easy it was to find in the Black Hills. Somehow i was expecting craft beer to be very hard to come by in the land of leather (seats and women) and chrome. The first gas station we hit had all three packaged offerings from Crow Peak, and it seemed ubiquitous around the Mount Rushmore area. Taste seemed to give way to mass appeal and cost nearing Sturgis, but I could still find a couple craft beers here and there.

Can I brought to share at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Thanks to Norseman for sending me this one.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and candied citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with an odd metallic flavor and a low level of carbonation that don't do anything towards this one's drinkability.

Serving type: can.

Reviewed during the last week when out of service area/Wifi in WY/UT. Full phone notes taken at the Rustic Inn, Jackson WY.

A- Can poured to a goblet with a clear deep golden body. A white head fills in to around a finger high with a frothy texture. Head retention is fairly good as large islands and a puffy ring result. Lacing begins with several webs and

S- Citrus and floral hop notes are responsible for a large portion of the aroma. Beyond that are notes of pine, light cracked base grains, bread and some fruit.

T- Zesty citrus hops lead off with grapefruit and bitter orange peel as pine, floral and spicy hop notes follow. Some balance provided by yeast fruit esters, bread, pale cracked cereal grains, light caramel and slight sweetness.

MF- Light to medium bodied with a foamy and frothy texture. Carbonation comes in at a fairly high level and it feels somewhat creamy with agitation. Finished with a sharp but clean zesty pine bitterness.

Totally random six pack of cans grabbed in the Badlands National Park general store. The hops remind me of Torpedo or SNPA and I would guess Centennial or Cascade are used. Very solid.

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.
