On tap @ The Bent River Brewpub. Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of floral hops and something herbal. Flavor is hoppy, herbal with a tart start and a mellow dry finish.

Cavie (4585) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
cloudy dirty orange appearance. Aroma has a smattering of hops; crisp, fruity, clean and spicy. Nice smell. Some banana. Taste is largly centinneal and cascade. Hopped flavor with a nice bitter finish.

CanIHave4Beers (4181) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours a hazy golden color with a small head and not a lot of lace to speak of on the glass.

The aroma is fairly mild, at first its got sort of a dirty water character but that thankfully fades leaving a clean maltiness and a little bit of citrus.

The flavor has a great toasty malt character, is mildly sweet but has a good deal of fruit forward hoppiness. Its straightforward but works really nicely,

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with thin white head. Floral hop nose, but not as aromatic as I expected a dry hopped ale to be. Nice sprucy hop flavor, but again, more subtle than I anticipated. Not much flavor otherwise with a thin mouth feel.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 6, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. Looks like the regular pale ale. Aroma of that Acme anvil that coyote is always trying to drop on the Roadrunner. Outstanding cascade hop usage. In fact, wreckless cascade hop application. Theres so many hops here that I think we could sterilize wounds with this stuff. You actually get thirsty after drinking this, it is so bitterly dry. Dont start with this one when you visit here, but certainly dont miss it.

A slightly hoppier version of their pale ale. Nice malt aroma with some grass and bread. The flavor starts with a sweet malt base followed by a nice hop finish. Dry and refreshing.

On tap at brewpub, pours a hazy orance color with a thin whtie head and lacing, the aroma hits you right away with nice citrus and hoppy touch, the first sip is very bitter and hoppy but has a great malt balance, very good.

20100608 Tap at brewpub. Soft bodied, laid back c-hop aroma and lasting mild hop bitterness. Nothing extraordinarily hoppy about this one that would make you think they put any emphasis on the dry hopping, but its a fine APA.
