Rusty copper red in color with a heavy chill haze that clarifies as this warms. Poured with a billowy off-white foam that slowly reduced to a thick frothy cap that leaves soapy, sticky lacings on the glass. Slightly pungent citrus grapefruit and pineapple aromas with floral notes over the top and pine hop bitterness beneath. Aromas are undeniably hop forward, however sweet caramel aromas. On the thinner side of medium bodied with a slick oily feel up front until tangy carbonation rolls through the middle. Fresh grapefruit and citrus flavors up front and through the middle that transition to pleasant pine hop bitterness to the finish. Sweet malty backbone throughout. Finishes semi-dry with citrus grapefruit notes followed by light pine hop bitterness.

(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
