Mikkeller Coffee IPA is overall unique. Not an everyday beer but worth a try.

A: Cloudy orange color with little head.

S: Slight coffee and citrus aroma.

T: Presence of malt. Finish is dry with slight coffee aftertaste. Light hops taste.

M: Not much carbonation.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, burnished gold with a good amount of visible carbonation. It tries to form a substantial off-white head during the pour, but it fades almost instantly.

S: Medium-roasted coffee, some pine and touch of dark citrus hops. I don't get a malt aroma here - I think the coffee is covering it up. Smells good though.

T: Follows the nose. Coffee and hops (grapefruit/citrus with some resin) up front. Then some sweet toffee and biscuit malts to round things out. Has a roasted coffee bitterness in the hang. It develops a peppery spice, or maybe a green coffee flavor, as it warms. It's not a bad flavor, but it grows obnoxious after awhile.

M: Medium body, low carbonation sensation, moderate alcohol presence.

O: This was interesting...a bit challenging, but interesting. Especially when cold, it was good. The peppery spice I could have done without. This isn't anything I'd go back to often, but the definition of something I'm glad I tried once (especially because DayMan never made it to Florida).

A: poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass, copper colored with a large off white head that dissipates leaving some lacing, cloudy

S: west coast hops, citrus, grapefruit, lemon

T: cirtrus hops up front mixes with a pronunced coffee bitterness, it actually works well together

M: medium to full with good carbonation

O: worth seeking out for the unique blend of flavors

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Golden, ruby hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles quickly, but not completely. Thick, persistent lacing. Head renews with force with each new pour.

S: Pine resin, a little roasted espresso, a hint of dark chocolate, and raspberry. All components light.

T: Bitter hops, with oak chips, and a bit of sweet dark chocolate.

M: Grainy and earthy. Bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is okay. Fair head, and some spotty lacing. Nose is a great combination of piny, roasty, and fruit notes. Harsh, bitter hops, with some wood and chocolate. Earthy and bitter. Overall, this is pretty good quaff.

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a bronze-reddish color with a two finger thick rocky white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over a moderate level of time to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The coffee in the aroma wasn't as strong as I would have expected. The aroma overall was heaviest of citrus grapefruit hop as well as some herbal and piney smelling hops. Along with these smells are aromas of some breadiness as well as a little bit of caramel and some tangerine adding just a touch of sweetness to the smell overall.

Taste – Just as with the nose, the taste is very weak in coffee especially upfront. The main flavors, initially to greet the tongue, are of a IPA nature with flavors of a bready and lightly caramel and tangerine sweet taste mixed with a whole lot of grapefruit hop. As the taste advances, pine hop flavors come to the tongue with the sweeter flavors losing a little bit of ground. At the end, a light coffee flavor dose come to the tongue adding a different bitter dimension to the taste. The coffee combines with the other IPA flavors and a newly arrived herbal hop flavor to leave a rather mixed flavor IPA taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium side in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Rather fitting for the IPA style, but nothing too exceptional.

Overall – A rather easy drinking and tasty IPA overall, but really lacking in the coffee I was hoping it would deliver. Nice, but not really worth the price you will likely pay.
