Been wanting to try this for a very long time.
A - Hazy amber color. Huge, four finger head that is porous and lacy, very delicate. Amazing sticking down to the last sip.
S - Malt wave hits: burnt caramel, peat, vegetal mustiness. A lot of floral, herby hops coming through with mint and rose water-ish notes. Big hit of verjus/grape must.
T - Great example of an American IPA. This is so distinctive that it could be deemed a Mid-Western IPA. Slightly sweet on the palate. Mint jam, clover honey, honeysuckle. Almost a berry-like tang.
M - Mouth-coating without the heavy feel. Medium body with a good hit of booze
This is so good I want it all the time. Might have to move to MN! Especially when they build the Surly biergarden

(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
