I've had the great fortune to travel to more than 60 countries and drink more beers than I care to imagine, but I can say unequivocably this is one of the worst beers I've ever consumed. The flavor is positively foul, to the extent I was overcome and eventually poured half my can down the sink. To add insult to injury, this beer gave me an absolutely side-splitting headache, something I've never had happen from a brew. I was initially keen to try more of Bent Paddle's products, but after this unfortunate experiment, I will leave that to braver souls and the Public Health Department.

This beer pours an orangish color the shade of faded bricks with a slight haze. The aroma is citrus first, primarily grapefruit, followed by understated pine. The flavor is also citrus forward, supported by pine and cedar. There are also strong caramels notes here, and their accompanying sweetness. The mouthfeel is fairly rich and full. Overall this is a well made beer, but just to sweet for me for hoppy beer. I do love Bent Paddle, but most of their other regular line-up is preferable to me.

It looks fabulous and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. It's a very grassy IPA both in nose and taste. It leaves a little bitterness in the aftertaste.

Pours a golden/brown color with a white head . smell is more malts than hops. Taste follows nose with more citrus hps on the palate. mouth feel is creamy smooth with a hugh malt finish. If you like malt forward IPA'S you will like this.
