If I was to pick an all day drinkable IPA, this would be it. Crisp and refreshing, without being overly flavored. This is easy to drink IPA will suit most, without destroying your pallet for the next beer.

Pint from draft while in Minneapolis. Striking golden hue with surprising clarity. On this gorgeous spring day it has the look of a beer you want to slake a thirst.

On the lighter end of taste and aroma - grassy and piney hops with a kiss of grapefruit and pith. A wisp of citrus by way of lemon and melon comes to the fore. Toasty malt beneath brings a touch of sweetness.

Moderately bitter and eminantly crisp and drinkable.

Bent Hop pours a copper color with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. Nice crisp aroma, with hints of hops. Flavor is well balanced, but still crisp with a nice noticeable floral flavor. Good body and feel. Overall, a very solid balanced IPA.

Dark yellow and murky with a nice beige head to start that recedes to a thin layer.

Nose has a bit of earthy leaning at first, but it fades off to a slightly spicy, sweet citrus.
Up front, the taste gives up its entire story, and proves that it is a well balanced bitter and sweet grapefruit and caramel treat. Finish is slightly earthy and just barely chalky.

Body leans to the lighter side of medium bodied and is not terribly dry on its bitter finish.

Pretty good, and sets up as a convincing and refreshing daily drinker.

Nice golden pour, some amber tones. Not a real bitter beer, but easy drinking and not overpowering. There are some citrus hints and some bready tones but its subtle. A little of everything and it agrees with my palate. Plus its from Duluth, and the water is pulled out of Lake Superior, which holds 10 percent of all the freshwater in the world. So you know its fresh. What more could you ask for. I could drink this on the deck, at a restaurant as a go to beer with food, or to impress friends.
