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.
