Poured from the can into a North Coast nonic.
Nice, dark amber color to this brew. A good two fingers of head on the pour yielding to significant lacing. Consistent carbonation through the glass.
Excellent floral hoppy nose. Get lots of citrus, especially a big fat grapefruit, and nice piney undertones. If it tastes as good as it smells, I'm in for a treat.
The mouthfeel on this beast is divine. Strong viscous brew with tingly carbonation, must... drink... slower...
What an exceptional balance of flavors. The Scottish malt serves as an excellent backbone for the hops to play. Not overwhelming hops, just a perfect citrus bite to each sip. I could drink this forever.
Solid drinkability. Slightly lower marks due to the thicker nature of the brew in respect to other IPA's, though I could see myself downing a whole gaggle of these easily.
Perhaps my favorite brew to date. Just incredible, makes me a little misty eyed...

(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
