Yet another big thanks to yamar68 for this one.
Pint can poured into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Dark orange/amber with a nice 1" head initially the recedes to a cap, very nice sticky lacing.
Smell: Balanced aroma of both malt and hops.
Taste: Another really well balanced IPA, the sweetness of the bready malt comes up first followed by the hoppy bitterness. It's really hard to say if the hops are more citrus than pine or just at the right balance (must like the beer in general). Almost like a heavily hopped Belgian Tripel with respect to a flavor profile that starts sweet but finished with a pleasant bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, well carbonated, and very clean on the palate.
Overall: Another very good example of a well balanced flavorful IPA.
Serving type: can

(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
Serving type: on-tap
