Bent Nail I.P.A. is a tribute to the hard-working contractors who make their living in Red Lodge. The I.P.A is high in alcohol and hop flavor. We use copious amounts of American cascade hops to give the IPA intense grapefruit and citrus aroma and flavor. Bronze medal winner – 2007 Great American Beer Festival.

hussinator (6) - Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2012 does not count
poured a nice copper color, with a white head. Aroma is great, you can really smell the grapefruit of the cascade hops. Kind of a thin mouthfeel, and decent hoppy flavor.. Good beer all in all.

jrallen34 (3500) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2011
bottle... pours a really light color but settles a dark orange, not much of head, not much to look at... weak nose, a bit of grapefruit, orange rind, only a bit of hops, ok but not a ton going on... taste is little light, this might be old, grapefruit, a little white pepper a touch of alcohol, not much of a hop presence... ok

DuffMan (8324) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is malty, sweet, berry-ish hop aroma-- certainly not a signature Cascade nose IMO Similar in the flavour department, low bitterness, a little earthy. Almost more British in style, I would never have guessed Cascade is their hop of choice in this brew. Hmmmmm...

draft. clear sparkling amber with a pillowy white head. medium light body, nice softness, good attenuation, fresh and oily. pine resin is high and gives it a prolonged oiliness. fresh, lively, overall enjoyable even though its somewhat simple.
