I picked this up after Darkness Day '08 at Blue Max. I love seeing great beers in a can! With that said I poured this from a can into an Imperial Pint glass.
The color is surprisingly very transparent for the the reddish brown color. About 1/2 a finger of head that disappears nicely with some nice lacing. Right away you get the smell of hops along with some notes of citrus. Great flavor and easy you drink. The hops are up front right away but they get you the most in the back of the mouth about a 1/2 second after a drink. You also get some citrus along with some sweet notes. Great balance of flavor for this beer. The Furious leaves your mouth with a dry crisp taste.
Very high on the drinkability, just a pleasure to drink. I kept wanting more and quickly before I knew it, it was all gone. This is just a fabulous IPA at a really good price

(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
