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.

Seems a bit towards the EPA style. Lots of pine and caramel all around. Dark, clear amber, excellent lacing pattern, really attractive. Thanks for trade Ron.

Pours an amber with an off white head which disappears quickly....aroma of fresh bread, citrus, slight melon.....taste is quite good, citrus, nice bitterness, just a tad light on the body and finishes with nice bittering.

Pours a deep orange, sissy white head, non uniform with lace. Aroma of pine and citrus, perhaps honey. Medium carb, spice, light fruits and florals, more pine. Not bad.

cmacklin (1304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2017
355ml bottle. (6.1% ABV) Pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium, soapy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, orange, grapefruit and light pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit and pine with a dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Simple but ok.

GTAEgeek (2411) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2017
On tap at the Sun Room in the Lake Yellowstone Hotel. Pours a dark, bronze color, with a medium, beige head. The nose is rye, some strong pine sap, chalk, and mud. Not very sweet, with a sharp, biting bitter flavor. Medium body, thick, and grainy. This is a pretty nice IPA, but a little harsh and off. Could be better.

At Soda Butte Lodge Prospector Restaurant, Cooke City. Pours clear dark amber with a lasting, small, frothy, off-white head. Smells a bit off. The aroma contains hops, hay, grass, malt and some caramel. It tastes medium to light hoppy bitter, light malty sweet, with a light bitter finish and lingering maltiness. Medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. It’s like a combination of an IPA and an Amber Ale...

Not much for aroma - but definitely has some body and tastes good after a long day

I like this beer, and I love this brewery. Red Lodge is doing a solid job. I prefer this one served extra cold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taking a trip to Yellowstone Park gives me the opportunity to sample local brews. Bent Nail was bought as a single 12 oz bottle at a Billings establishment. I could not get it as cold as I would prefer but that is not going to stop me. Drinking out of the bottle restricts opinion on color and head. A smell gives a cascade hops grain and citrus reply. The taste is a light hoppiness, bread and a slow-ending bitterness. No world beater but fair enough.
