Draught at the brewery! Two finger off-white head with burnt orange body, high carbonation

Smells of grassy malt, wet grain, and citrus.

Tastes: lemony start, herbal middle, and a floral hop finish with a trace of grapefruit and apricot

Overall, this is a beer that I would have again. I wish I could have purchased a six pack.

Of the five or so Bent River's I tried on my one and only trip to the Quad Cities, this was by far the best. I had two of them. The dry hopped had been recommended so I bought it first. After tasting several others I bought the second pint of the same.

It has a cool, orangey, cloudy appearance. It's APA over-the-topness is done up just right. Well (off) balanced. It's nice and bitter and fragrant, etc.

If I had stayed for a third beer it probably would have been another of the same. Well done.
