A: dark copper in a tulip glass. Lots of lacing.

S: typical IPA, hoppy and citrusy.

T: very hoppy with citrus and pine flavors.

O: I like a strong hoppy flavor in my IPA, and this did not disappoint. Bent River is a great brewery to visit, with good food and good beer on tap.

A: The beer is quite hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that settled down but has good retention properties, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with strong notes of citrusy and tropical fruit hops along with some hints of pine. As the beer warms up, aromas of mango and papaya become more prominent.
T: The taste closely follows the smell, starting off with flavors of citrus and tropical fruit hops—mango and papaya stand out in particular—and finishing with hints of piney hops, all the while supported by strong underlying notes of caramel malts. There is a moderate to strong amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting IPA - it's like an old school version with the strong dose of caramel malts but has some interesting aromas and flavors from the Citra hops.
