COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft. Dark bronze pour, nearly brown. Nice sustained head. This is an easy drink ... Not much to distinguish it, a very even keeled beer with just enough of everything. I’d call this an APA rather than an IPA but who am I to say? (#4642, 7/3/2012)

One of my favorite beers from this beautiful state. Hoppy like a dry field in August with enough alcohol to make sipping something of an imperative. I’ve hiked my share into the Beartooths where they cool in snow banks and Spring runoffs. The flavor is deep, rewarding, and the beer smells of hard work. I’m IN.

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.

chibuck (3509) - 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

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...
