4.25/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Stoked to try this through a recent trade.
A: Color is deep red to light brown. How does this fall under the American IPA category there is nothing Pale about it? 1 finger head quickly faded and left nice lacing.
S: Mild, malty mixed with hops, fruity
T: The hop flavor is there but the nutty and malty characteristic was much higher than I was expecting for this style of beer. If Indian brown ale were a style this would probably be the flagship beer for that style.
F: Crisp and smooth
O: A little disappointed... Color and flavor doesn't match what an AIPA should be. Great beer if I had no expectation and if I didn't try to taste it in the context of its category.
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
