Poured from a 16oz can into a standard pint glass. Thanks Tom for sending it.
A - pours a slightly hazy medium orange hue. An agressive pour provides 3 fingers of medium-light khaki colored head that provides a good amount of lacing.
S - hoppy, citrus, piney, earthly, sharp, alcohol
T - very hoppy. Loaded with ctirus hops with some pine present more on the tail end. Slighyl earthy and grassy profiles. Some grapefruit shows up later on as well. Slightly grainy. I think the can is starting to head south and I'm glad I popped it when I did. A big, firm bitterness that is slightly fruity and piney finishes things up.
M - lighter bodied.
D - fairly easy to drink considered the IBUs.
Overall, a fantastic beer that is heavy on the hops and bitterness. Being lighter bodied makes this one easy to drink down. I think the can was just starting to turn as I picked up on some of the fruity off flavors hoppy beers seem to throw out as they start to age a little.
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
Serving type: on-tap
