A friend of mine gave me a couple of cans of this beer, and I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised upon consuming this tasty beverage.
Appearance: Has a even golden color, doesn't seem to be anything other than pure beer in this IPA. There was quite a bit of lacing when I poured this sucker out. The head of the beer was craggy, looked a bit like whipped cream. Basically, just a very foamy head that lingers longer than most.
Smell: Honestly not a lot to the smell of this beer. From what I could detect, caught floral scents with a hint of citrus which isn't surprising for this genre.
Taste: This was the winner for me. Had a lot of hops flavor but seemed very smooth. I don't generally like IPAs or APA for that matter. But this beer was good enough to make me rethink that policy. Not much of an aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: You won't fill up drinking this beer, which would make it great to take to a tailgate, bbq or just for a lot of drinking. Carbonation is there, but doesn't overpower the rest of the drink.
Overall: I wished I lived closer to Kearney, or at least wish that Cropduster distributed to my area. Next time I visit Big Red Nebraska I'll have to pick up some more of this delicious brew. Thumbs UP

Fluffy, creamy white head, leaving a big ring of what will surely be crusty/dried head by tomorrow morning. Hazy golden through the pint glass.
Not a huge IPA in the nose, which is actually refreshing for a chance. Wafts of floral and citrus, like violets and fresh oranges, illuminate the nose to what should be a really good beer.
A bit bracing in its vegetative bitterness, with less of what the nose might lead you to believe is here. In fact, any florals here are very secondary, with only the possibility of orange rind being a citrus component.
Vegetative and heavy on the tongue, like masticated leaves. Something to be desired here.
Nice for a different take on IPA, especially here in the summer, but not to enjoy in the long-term.

Big white head slowly falls above a cloudy washed out straw golden colored beer.
Light aroma of slightly sour grains and even less hops presence but I think it's noticeable.
Very light almost sourish taste with a slight hops bite following.
A lightly dryish aftertaste on a lighter bodied IPA.
Very light hops for a IPA, maybe that's what a mid-American IPA is.
