Finally getting to try this!!

Pours out a deep amber/copper color with 3 fingers of off-white head.

The aroma is packed with citrus, pine and earthy hop notes. There is a decent malt backbone here with bready, caramel and toffee notes too.

The taste is also hop forward, but very balanced. There are strong amounts of orange, some tangerine and pine hop notes. There is a slight floral character to it as well. This flows into the big malt backbone with tons of caramel, toffee and biscuit notes.

The body is medium and the mouthfeel is crisp. Very easy to drink.

A solid IPA, but nothing that will blow you away. Very easy to drink because of the balance between bitter and sweet. Very enjoyable.

(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
