Great, another SD brewery that I have to try and figure out...  but this is a great beer to start with, and an incredible value.  There's nothing shocking about this, but it surely has deep hop character YOLO'n all over a relatively easy drinking, clean, and delicious ale; all that means it'll leave quite an impression on you, as it did for me.  In fact, it reminds me of Blind Pig, and that's a huge compliment given how good BP actually is (even though I apparently dislike it when tasting it blind).  There's no need to say much else, but to summarize: delicious IPA at a great value.  No brainer right here.

From now on I'll be adding a new feature to my reviews here: if the beer is enjoyable and has a reasonably high NSP (like St. Archer's IPA), you'll see this:

But if it has an excessively low NSP or tastes like dogballs, then you'll see a picture with the hand turned upside down.  This way you'll instantly know whether it rubs the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose. Cheers!
