Got this as an extra in a trade with stevef03, thank you! Color looks like the inside of a plum. Theres floaties like crazy! Very strong peach smell on the nose, some grapefruit, orange, and hops. Upon tasting, once again, peach is very dominant, followed by other citrus notes, however this was not near as hoppy as I would have expected from an IPA. More smooth than bitter. Very creamy mouthfeel for an IPA, I like it! . I thought this was a very nice IPA that I could drink all the time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

(on tap at Local Option - served in British pint, I think - can't quite recall)

A: (dry-hopped) cloudy, dark amber liquid... slimy foam that leaves some nice rings of lace

S: Amarillo hops, English yeast?... pine, stewed pear, apple... golden raisin?...

T: bitterness a lil grassy, pesky bite... little alcohol... malt only in the background, light caramel... mostly resiny hops here, somewhat grapefruity, a little peppery... rounded edges, overall dry finish

M: soft, dull-foamy, flat-ish... very easy to knock back quick

O: the bartender's reaction may have said it all: "but that's only a regular IPA... that's all you want?" - haha... never had it before, so yeah! - ended up having 3-4 other beers as well... it's a decent American IPA for sure... having used Amarillo once or twice in recent homebrews, I can smell this damn hop whenever I come across it now, and I dig it - it's distinct, not bright and citrusy, a bit more dank and overripe... glad I was able to try this, disappointed not finding Coffee Bender anywhere though
