The Crow Peak Brewing Company is in Spearfish, South Dakota, in the Black Hills.
11th Hour IPA - This 6.5% ABV beer pours a glowing burnt orange, deep amber, light brown in color. There is a quarter-inch of creamy and foamy head, off-white in color. The aroma is piney, resinous, some cantaloupe and tropical fruit. The taste is extremely, mouth-puckeringly bitter, obliterating most flavors. Some of the aroma is in the aftertaste. This beer smells better than it tastes. I don't mind a very bitter IPA if it follows after the flavors, but here it overwhelms everything.
Pile-O-Dirt Porter - This 6.0% ABV beer pours very dark brown to black. There is very little carbonation or head. The aroma is dark roasted malt, some coffee, and a tart note. The taste is extremely dark roasted malt, coffee grounds, with a tart note that ends in a dry finish.
