I prefer Mikkeller's Sleep Over Coffee IPA over this particular beer.

Bottle aged. A very interesting light coffee ipa, Belgian style. I typically don't love coffee beers (especially of the stout variety), but this one was very interesting. Not like any coffee beer I've ever had. It's light, not overly hoppy and full of flavor. A dessert beer, or late night sipper (if you need to stay awake). I'll grab this one again.

A fine I.P.A. Not as strong a coffee taste as I expected. Different and worth a try.

Poured from a 1 pt 9.4 fl oz bottle into a pint glass. Brewed & bottled by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium. This is the Citra x Michiti version.

Appearance: Pours a wort-colored soupy brown, with a thinner off-white head. Looks like a glass of iced tea.

Smell: Phenomenal hop aroma bursting out of the bottle (I love Citra hops!) Once in the glass, the Michiti coffee aroma takes over and is also amazing.

Taste: Tastes like iced coffee, brewed with citrusy, tropical fruit flavored hops. This is really nice!

Mouthfeel: Perfect mouthfeel to complement the coffee and hop flavors. Not too thin, not too thick, but with a surprising amount of carbonation, which adds an interesting layer of complexity.

Overall: Not being a regular coffee drinker, but always loving the aroma/flavor of coffee, I wasn't sure what to expect. I already mentioned my love of Citra hops. This is a great combination. I just hope it doesn't keep me up all night!

12/29/13 From bomber at home. I was hoping for so much more here. The coffee flavor tasted raw & both coffee & brew lacked body. Most interesting feature was what should have been a creamy pale ale head looked like a big 'honeycomb' head but merely cosmetic. The last word here should be 'vegetal'.
