look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A darker golden color with a thin white head

S: A strong citrus aroma with grapefruit, apricot, pear. A moderate malt aroma.

T: A wonderful summer IPA that provides an ever present citrus taste that lasts from start to finish. And it has so little backside bitterness. The malt adds further complexity to this tasty beer.

M: Moderate carbonation and malt provides bready and creamy feel.

T: The balance of the malt and hops provide a delicious combination. I particularly like the citrus character of this IPA in which the hop deliver such flavor and consistency through the entire tasting experience. And it's not over the top bitter. It has made this a favorite IPA.

12 oz can into snifter

L - certainly golden with a touch of orange and a fluffy white 1 inch head
S - Tropical. Mango with orange and citrus peel. A touch dank
T - Not as assertive as the nose would suggest. Lightly tropical with bitter peel
F - medium light body, with very soft carb - a touch under-carbed almost; right on the line

Overall a very tasty offering, if a touch less forward in the hop flavors than the nose would suggest. I like a soft velvety carb, but this was almost too low, but otherwise a well executed and solid IPA.

Had on tap at the Pig & Fiddle. L: Pours brilliant burnished gold under a ¼” clingy white foam cap.
S: Some grass and light grains with traces of citrus and a hint of dank.
T: Light malts, biscuit, a hop bitter accent, come earthiness and some citrus rind.
F: Creamy, medium body and carbonation, soft on the palate.
O: A refreshing, flavorful IPA.

pretty good ipa here.. more hoppy skunk or funk than I was expecting which I thought was a bonus. not overly sweet or malty somewhat dry finish.. pretty easy drinking moderate bitterness.

This hands down my favorite IPA that I have tried this year. It is hoppy as hell with a citrus hint. It is not bitter like most IPAs but I think that's it's best quality.. Bent Paddle Brewing Co, Duluth, MN you guys hit this one out of the park. You guys ruined it for every other brewery because they cannot compare.
