Bent Paddle Bent Hop Golden IPA

This is a 6.2% ABV golden IPA from the Bent Paddle Brewing Company of Duluth, Minnesota. According to their can, 10% of the world's fresh water is in Lake Superior, and 100% of the water in this beer is from that source. I sampled a few of their beers at the 2013 St. Paul Summer Beerfest, and they were a standout with a really quality product.

The beer pours dark honey golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of white to off-white. The aroma is fruity, citrus, tangy, zesty, grassy, over crackery malt. The taste follows the notes of the aromas, hitting orange, grapefruit, lime. The finish is quite dry and bitter. It is crisply carbonated and refreshing. Very enjoyable.
