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!

11th Hour pours a copper color with a nice and long lasting lacing head. There is a floral aroma, but its rather weak. The taste has some floral notes, and has a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Nice full flavors, but does finish a bit harsh. Overall however its a nice IPA.

Took the family to Rapid City for a little vacation so figured I'd see what was available locally that I couldn't get in MN. Picked up a six pack of this and their Porter as well. It's an ok IPA, not great to me but certainly drinkable.
If I lived in SD would probably buy again.

Sampled from a can as well out of a bottle. Pretty much the same. Appearance is a amber colored hue with hints of light brown undertones. A fizzy white head with decent retention.

The aroma has a great hoppy nose with some minor malt notes overall. The hops have a nice citrus and grassy aroma to it. Some minor herbal notes but more balance. A good caramel malty note is there but more of a generic undertone to it which enhances the hops. Some dirty yeasty undertones but mostly clean.

The taste is similar. A good hop flavor upfront with a nice balance from the malt. The hops come out first with a good citrus and herbal quality. Some minor dirty off hop notes but overall great appeal. The malt comes out more vs the nose. A soft caramel and light bready taste. Some minor yeast notes but overall good. Limited bitterness though and would have liked some at least for more balance.

The body is moderate to light. Good for style. A good carbonation if not just a touch much but ok. Overall a good beer. Some dirty undertones and limited bitterness are minor faults but still easy to drink.
