Notes/Commercial Description:
Heyoka is a western charged firecracker. We conjured the classics in Chinook and Amarillo then laid them on a bed of pale malt. This India Pale Ale shoots straight to the bitter edge before falling into a mellow haze. Deep gold and ready to travel into the distance. The Heyoka resides in the opposite and is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder.

Pour into a pilsner glass that yields a healthy two inch head that lasts a time, time and a half. Cloudy pale yellow. Best lacing I've seen in awhile.

Citrus, hoppy, piney, grassy earthy aromas. Sweet malt.

Hoppy bitter onrush. Citrus and pine flavours. Malt sweetness balances this. Grapefruit rind and Sugar Smacks cereal. Dankness ensues.

Medium body and finishes dry.

Its like Half Acre is setting the standard for IPAs. Truly a classic nailed. A lot of hop/malt structure with dankness. Nice to see a local attainable brew from a brewery with a lot of success. Can we expect Heydoka Dos in the near future? Tremendously tremendous!
