4.03/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Had a pint from the tap at the brewery.

Appearance was pretty good. A golden, pale amber color but with poor head resulting from the pour, I believe. The little head that did exist quickly faded too.

Smell was great. Very hoppy, fresh, citrus, floral and bold. You could tell this had hops. Much more than their IPA.

Taste was also very hoppy. A touch of malt sweetness followed by strong hops flavor and bitterness. A touch on the aggressive, harsh side, but still very good. A little grapefruit-like.

Mouthfeel was fine, medium-thin body with light carbonation.

A drinkable pale ale that I quickly finished and left me wanting more - and some food. A touch harsh, but good overall.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
