4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Serving type: 16-ounce can. The “CANNED ON” date on the bottom of the can is “08/03/12.”
Appearance: Poured into a nonick pint glass. The color is ruby copper. Two fingers of eggshell/lightly tanned head dissipated to leave a thick ring around the edge and a thin lacing.
Smell: It has a nice, citrus hoppiness but is also well-balanced. Grapefruit, lemon, orange, and herbal hops, but there is also a caramel base with toffee and brown sugar.
Taste: It mostly mirrors the smell. Invigorating citrus — grapefruit, orange, and lemon — is compliment by grassy hops, pine, caramel, toffee, and bready malts. It has a pretty dry, metallic aftertaste.
Drinkability: It is quintessential American IPA from the North Star State.
Serving type: bottle

(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
