look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
16oz can poured into an oversized tulip. Canned on 11/21/13
A - Off-white head looks delicious! The beer itself is deep amber coming in on the dark side of the style. Tons of sticky lacing all down the glass.
S - Great meld of citrusy cascade/centennial hop blend. Mild pine leaning more towards tropical aromas. Pops from the glass. Little bit of sweetness, toasty malts.
T - The hop flavor here is truly unique, it dominates like I've never experienced. The flavor is distinguishably pine hoppy yet is surprisingly tame in relationship to bitterness. There are some toasty malt towards the backend but subtle. Crisp dry finish.
M - Medium body, dry as can be, medium-light carbonation.
O - Total hop flavor but doesn't crush in bitterness. Complex and refreshing.
Judgement - Hard to beat this caliber of 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
