Good, but not my kind of good. I can appreciate it of course, but I would not seek out another glass.

cbfobes (2275) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2010
On tap at brewpub, pours a clear golden/orange color with a nice white head and some lacing in the glass, has a light aroma of hops and a good balance of malt in the finish. Not great but by no means terrible.

20100608 Tap at brewpub. This one seemed way hoppier than the "dry hopped" version. Maybe it was just fresher. Nice c-hop profile, lots of Cascade I guess. Mild DMS but not off-putting . Soapy, perfumy to finish.

Cavie (3754) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
On tap at drowland’s wedding. Pours a hazy copper orange color. Decent colored head. Fruity and spicy hops on the nose. Fair bit of pine. Taste is a good mix of citrus hops and pine needles. More citrus. Decent finish with a slight bitterness and fading hops.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2010
Growler at DLD thanks to rooftoprogue. Pours hazy orangish amber with white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, and caramel malts. Flavors of hops, light citrus and caramel malts. This one is heavily oxidized at this point. Will have to stop in and re-rate when in the area.

Just a good round beer. Reviewing off past memory. I focus on the umcommon and oatmeal when I can get out to BR. I like this beer. Golden amber pour. Nice hoppy noce. I enjoy the balance of sweet malts and hops with a nice hop finish. Nice smooth beer.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2010 Have had on tap at Bent RIver a couple of times. A generally good and consistent beer, but it really can change a bit depending on age and batch. Generally light hopped and leaning towards the malty/plain side, but hey, you gotta sell to the dummies.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2009
On tap at Bent River brewpub. Amber with a thin white head and a lively look. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt. A touch over carbonated but decently balanced with a medium spicy and bitter finish.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Slightly hazy amber orange color. Fresh, oily and wet hops, lightly floral and piney with some sweet orange notes as well from a slight presence of some caramel malt. Essentially the same thing as SNPA.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Nice looking, pouring a pale amber body with a frothy white head that does sheet lacing as you drink. It smells of caramel with a touch of toffee covered with tart oranges and tangerines. Very nicely balanced APA, the light citric bitterness matching the sweet malt evenly. Good sessionable material here.
