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.
