Poured from a 16 oz can into a snifter glass.
A: Pours a clear deep amber with a one finger beige head.
S: Pungent piney hop goodness with a slightly sweet malt background.
T: Vibrantly hoppy and piney, bitter as can be, finishes with a solid malt base.
M: A bit sticky, great carbonation, medium bodied.
O: Reminds me a lot of Green Flash West Coast IPA and Avery DuganA IPA. That being said, it is slightly over the top in the hop category, but it works very well since it falls back on some caramel malt. I can't wait to try Abrasive sometime!

(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
