No date on the can but I imagine this one is fairly fresh.
A: Rose/amber colored beer which has decent clarity, just a little haze clouds out the light. An off white head forms not unlike sea foam and clings all over the glass.
S: Mango, tangerine, bread crust, and waffle cone.
T: Very crisp showing a fair amount of herbaceous bitterness. Tea leaf like flavors finish out leaving the tongue feeling dry. A subdued malt driven, bread crust like suggestion, lingers in the background. The prominent finishing note is most akin to that of unsweetened iced tea (It sort of looks like tea as well).
M: drying and light
O: Pretty darn good can of beer, and you've gotta love that it's a tall-boy. It's underwhelming in hoppy expressiveness showing mostly muddled herbescent flavors. It's nice and dry finishing however which is a major plus in my not so humble opinion. I would drink more of this if it were around to have.

(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
