4.2/5 rDev -3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Poured into a wilibecher. Pours a cloudy brownish-orange with a foamy two-finger head. Interesting color, relatively dark for an American IPA. Decent head retention, very nice lacing.
Aroma: Intense hop notes of grapefruit and pine (especially noticeable when smelled directly from the can). Toasty, biscuity malt notes are also perceptible. Smells plain awesome.
Taste: Fruity hop notes and bitterness followed by big biscuity, slightly caramel-y malt backbone. Hops make a return appearance in the finish. Incredibly smooth and well put together.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, light and lively carbonation.
Overall: One of my favorite IPAs. The first sniff of hops from the can is always a pleasure. I could drink this every day and not get tired of it.
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
Serving type: on-tap
