4.18/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
16oz can poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in a trade with arvjunk. Thanks! No date code to indicate freshness of this one.
A - Poured a clear, deep-dark copper with a full 1" of dense, off-white/cream colored head. Head lingers for a couple of minutes, slowly descending to a thin layer.
S - Lots of grapefruity and piney hops. No real malt presence. Hops pretty much dominate.
T - Pine flavors come thru prominently here. Hints of spiciness and grapefruit as well. Little bit of malt sweetness to balance, but the hops are definitely the main attraction - as they should be. Very good.
M - Very full mouthfeel. Malt doesn't come thru much in flavor, but makes up nicely in the body - giving a thick, chewy feel. Carbonation is moderate to high - compliments the fullness here.
D - For a really hoppy and full bodied IPA, this drinks pretty well. It feels a touch heavy, and this may catch up with me after a couple. All in all, goes down fairly easily.

(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
