4.48/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Traded for this, only to find out it was almost 5 months old! Fail. I miss my Heady Toppers. 16 oz can, poured into a Bell's tulip glass.
A: Biiiig thick off-white/creamy head. When this settles out, a surprisingly dark amber/ruby clear body emerges. Really nice retention and lacing. If the head wasn't so crazy this would be near-perfect.
S: Grassy, pinecone-forward hop aroma, but a hint of something else making it unique. Maybe some grapefruit? Something spicy, citrusy... can't put my finger on it. Nice though.
T: True to the smell, lots of pine and grass hop flavor. Bitterness throughout. Well-balanced. Not incredibly bitter but definitely nice.
M: Smooth! One of the smoother, easy-drinking IPAs I've ever had. Good level of carbonation. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Highlight of the beer, in my opinion.
O: Even 5 months old, this is a fantastic IPA. I wish I could try this fresh! Incredible drinkability, great taste, if fresh it would probably rival Zombie Dust. Must-try, world class.
Serving type: can

3.76/5 rDev -13.2%

(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
