The beer is a beautiful deep amber with a pillowy beige head. Wispy lacing on the glass as the beer is enjoyed.
Aroma: Citrus hops and a bit of juniper
Taste: Large citrus hop presence then a solid caramel malt backbone and a nice long finish from bittering hops.
Mouthfeel is exceptional, smooth and creamy, feels like a cask-conditioned beer.
Overall, seriously solid IPA, one of the standouts amongst a very crowded field. definitely give this a try if you can.
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
