A - Pours with a cloudy amber body, topped by a ridiculous three finger offwhite head. It was a pretty aggressive pour, but the head sported excellent retention and left a nice veil of lacing down the inside of my tulip glass. My pour was just perfect, as a block of head jutted over the lip of my tulip glass, straight up but not losing any beer down the outside of the glass. I love that!

S - The brew carries the beautiful aroma of a fine IPA...grapefruit and pineapple. I smell no coffee whatsoever in the nose.

T & M - Tastes like a fine IPA as well. Those same citric hop notes that I smelled are present, but the coffee is surprisingly lacking. The hops are balanced nicely with a sweet malty character. This is a medium bodied brew that has a sort of drying character to it...maybe the coffee adds that since it doesn't seem to add a bold coffee flavor like I expected. Actually, as it warms the coffee appears just the slightest...a very mild accent to the hops.

D - This is really a solid brew, and not at all what I expected from a coffee IPA. It's a great IPA, just don't expect alot from the java. As it warmed it added a nice accent, but was far from the main player. I would certainly recommend this to my beer loving friends!

Poured a deeply hazed orange color into my tulip snifter and put up a huge 2-1/2 finger head, large bubbles - slight smell of the coffee, not much in the way of hops - taste was kind of the same, and I didn't really like it -bitter- mouthfeel was on par with a decent ipa - I gotta say I was looking forward to this beer - thought it would be interesting, but I quickly lost interest - this is the first coffee/ipa I've had, and I would have thought Mikkeller would be able to pull it off, but not this time, not for me - I tried my 2nd and 3rd glass at different times of the day, to make sure, but no - it left me feeling 'not so good' -

Pours a deep golden color with a slight haze. Aroma of fresh coffee and hops, and not without some booze. In the taste, rich nutty coffee and some raw citrus, herbal, floral action. Bitter and a bit rough around the edges with the raw coffee flavor, still rather delicious. Medium bodied, well carbonated ale. Overall, a fine brew and proof coffee and hops can be a match made in heaven.

Tomahawk + Guji. Pours a murky amber with billowing soap bubble head, settles in a minute with small blobs of lace strewn about the glass. Smell: coffee over fruity... bitter chocolate...jammy - apricot, orange marmalade; resiny hopping. Taste: apricot jam, berry note and a "green" floral pop, then biscuit with jam and a bitter cocoa note that stays through the tangerine heavy finish. Medium bodied, creamy, active carb... sticky citrusy finish. Nice!
