From a bomber dated 1/27/15.

A rather well balanced IPA...not exactly what I expected from a SD brewery but pleasant nonetheless (although I certainly don't object to hop bombs!). The bready maltiness actually dominates on both the nose and tongue for me. The fruity and bitter elements from the hops are there but pretty subtle when compared to a lot of other west coast IPAs. This is a real quality brew, but, considering the cost, I'm not sure I'll come back to it anytime soon....a couple more bucks will get me a sixer of some other great stuff.

Maple syrup sweet, tangerine, herbal hops. Nice bitter bite, good balance. Good IPA.

color is a clear copper, pours a finger of white head that retains well and is reinforced by a steady stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. In the taste and the aroma there's lots of citrus fruit notes with some apples and pears in there too, with a nice, bready, malt backbone. very crisp and finishes cream, overall a really top notch IPA, Tasty, smooth, balanced, no bitterness.

Delicious, but needs more balance and a fuller body. Love the color and the smell. Would order again.
