16oz. can poured into my FFF's imperial pint glass...
Pours a very attractive copper, burnt amber color with good clarity and a nice two finger soft beige head. Head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves tons of lacing all the way down the glass...
A very pronounced piny hop aroma, with some subtle citrus scents as well...some sweet, almost caramel-like malt presence in the background...
Tastes more like a thick DIPA than just a plain ole IPA, very much hoppy, but I was surprised at the amount of sweet bready malt flavor this brew had. Hop heads will like this as there is an abundance of piny hops on the tongue, but it is in no way a hop bomb, very well balanced, great flavor...
Thick and smooth, the mouthfeel on this one is quite good. Medium bodied, creamy, perfect carbonation level...
Really enjoyed this beer, could drink more than a few of these in a sitting. There is a bit of a persistent aftertaste that isn't the greatest, but in no way affects how I feel about this beer...

(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
