A: golden orange. Think creamy white head.

S: hops. Citrus. Tropical fruit. Mango juice. Resin.

T: guava. Ripe melon. Lemongrass. Bitter pine. Resin. Some malt at the end

F: creamy. Maybe oats added. Coats the palate nicely. Nice contrast of sweet and bitter

O: what to say that hasn't been already. Consistently one of the best IPAs you can get.

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.

(bottle, 22oz) Good at first, but one dimensional. Has a nice hempy/dank taste at first but that is all I tasted throughout. Kinda leaves you looking for something else at the end. (2/8/15)
