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!

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).

4.05/5  rDev +6.3%

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
