Thanks to Mista for sending some of these my way.
Pours a fairly dark (for an IPA) reddish-brown with a fluffy white head. Smell is very nice, it's got that great citrus smell that I like so much in my IPAs, but also balances it out with more malt than you usually find in an IPA's aroma. It also smells a bit sweet. The flavor is nice, but isn't quite as impressive as the nose. The malt comes through more in the flavor and it's not quite as citrusy as the nose would indicate. Nicely balanced with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty great IPA that I would drink all the time if I had it regularly available to me.
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
