look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
On tap at a special event. Appearance is copper with a little more red thrown in. No haze noticed. Head was good on my pour and left nice lacing.
Odor was very good. Pine with citrus and caramel sweet. Nice balance of different odor notes coming together.
Taste was as good as odor or better. The hops carry pine notes and some citrus. Grapefruit would the citrus I am thinking of. Green notes as well(with the pine) and a little sweet caramel or toffee in the background. Mouth feel was good. Not heavy or watery. I would say moderate carbonation.
Overall, an excellent beer. It manages to set itself apart for other IPAs which is hard to do.
Serving type: on-tap

(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
