Excited to try this difficult to find beer while I'm traveling. Can date 5-2-13.
Pours an unusually dark, almost red-orange amber. Quite obviously full-bodied, with strong carbonation. Head nice but disappears rapidly.
Aroma is spectacular, wonderfully earthy, with an almost fresh tomatoes from the garden aspect to it along with pine and a touch of hard-to-define citrus. Reminiscent of West Coast standard-bearers, but very much its own thing. Very dank with a fresh-hop character to it; malts provide body and complexity.
Taste: Follows nose. A hophead's dream. Glad I don't live in Minnesota or I might be a boring barfly and weigh 300 pounds. The palate is wonderfully complex, and the finish is among the best I've ever experienced, like chewing raw hops.
Mouthfeel: Very full and a bit too heavy but this beer is drinkable.
An extremely aggressive, full-bodied, hop-forward, complex brew in all the best ways. One of the most explosively flavorful beers I've ever had--the Rolling Stones--or perhaps more appropriate--Replacements of IPAs. Surly Furious Rocks.
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
