Poured a nice copper hazy color with a thick creamy lasting head.

Smell is dominated by a nice green vegetal hop smell with hints of citrus.

Taste is a very nice mix of toasted malts up front with a very crisp nice citrus hop finish.

Mouthfeel is a nice medium body with a good dry finish.

Overall a very drinkable pale, nice Job Bent River.

Had a pint today at the brewpub. Menu said it was dry hopped with cascade. Definitiely a citrus flavor there.

Hazy orange. Half inch cap of foam that stuck around. Tea-like aroma with a hint of hoppy citrus rind. Somewhat malty. Bready and lightly citrusy flavor with mild bitterness. Like a hop tea, not all that pungent or potent, but easy drinking. Medium bodied and sessionable for sure. Could use more definition and punched up hops. Despite that it's an enjoyable beer to drink.

A - Near bright orange body topped by a white head, sticky in nature, and standing just less than an inch tall.

S - The pungent aroma of cascade hops fill the air when the brew is placed on the bar.

T - The strong piney flavor of hops are fantastic, even at a minimal IBU level of 45.

M - The brew is smooth and thick as it goes down all too well. The remnants of each sip are evident on my lips in a sticky residue.

~ This is a very good beer. I strongly recomend everyone try this beer. I will certainly seek this pale ale out again the next time I'm in the Moline area.

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.
