look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Date stamped 8-11.
Pours a deep red, dark amber in body. Khaki head with an off red hue. Good 2 fingers of thick fluffy head with spots of large bubbles. Sticky retention and a nice residual amount of head.
Sweet caramel base with a nice piney, citrusy hop topper. Lovely. Nice and well hopped but reveals a very solid malting.
Crisp hop front, followed by a candied malt body. Caramel and chocolate notes in the body. Finish is a resurgence of citrus hops. Reminiscent of candied oranges.
Clean finish, crisp body, stick and very flavorful. Perhaps a bit dark on the IPA side of things, more closely resembles a hoppy amber/red, yet I'm not complaining. In any case, I very well done IPA. So...damn...drinkable.
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
