Pouring from the can (strange to say can with a great bear like this) results in a glorious orange'ish color with a 1" light tan head that fills an english pint glass to perfection. The aroma is of citrus and hops, it makes my mouth water! The first first taste that hits you are the hops, and then the sweetness of the malt creeps in..but not for long, the palate is left with a hop bitter that lasts for a while.
Perhaps the hop linger is a bit much...???
But, I must say it is a fine beer that everyone who likes hops has to at least try once in their life.

(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
