Had on-tap at Kuma's Corner this afternoon.
Nice deep red/brown body. Short but fluffy head, gentle lacing. Moderately strong citrus hop characterizes the aroma, accompanied by a little bit of caramel malt. Taste is an exceptional blend of citrus, pine, and pepper. An elaborate dance of hops that are big on flavor, but don't overkill with bitterness. Aftertaste is dominated by piney hops, but balanced by nice little bit of candied fruit sweetness. Big taste, but smooth-- as is the mouthfeel. Not all that light, but not nearly as "sticky" as other big IPAs. Big flavor and high ABV make me stop at my second pint.
Really superb mix of flavors in this IPA. Taste is delicious. I'm sad its not available more in Chicago. I'll be seeking this out whenever I'm in MN.

(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
