Poured into a snifter at my bottle share. Thanks, Jessie.

A: Amber/bronze with a tan half finger head that fizzled out quickly. Lots of lacing.

S: Piney hops. Subtle coffee aroma. Oh my, what do we got here?

T: And it tastes like...whoo, freaky. The grapefruit hops mixed with almost expresso-like coffee give the pallate an unusual sensation. Then you start to process it and it all blends in pretty darn nicely. Some light malts slide in. The finish is dry.

M: Medium with decent carbonation.

O: A great conversation piece, to say the least. A sipper. The double team of flavors sits in your mouth for a while in hop/coffee joy. This could be a pleasant brunch drink.

As far as I know my first from Mikkeller. Poured a massive head into the glass, off white tannish. Steller retention and lacing. Colour is an orange bronze brown and quite hazy.

Smell certainly has a pervading coffee bean aspect out of the glass. Also a strong and strange herbal aroma going on. Grapefruit and berries, very leafy. Hops are incorporated nicely. Although this is one of the strangest and hard-to-place noses I have encountered.

Taste has a firm malt base with a touch of sweetness, then bitter coffee and liquor linger overtop, flashes of alcohol. Hops are citrusy, earthy, and really nice. The incorporation of the coffee is really interesting, initially the raw bean from the nose then trends into a bitter dark espresso on the end. Finish is drying and bitter coffee grounds. Actually the flavours here are balanced quite nicely.

Moughfeel is moderate, nice light malty feel, carbonation is quite light and could use a bit more. Really dry at end, with a bit of liquory alcohol and espresso, generally smooth on the palate, with a really long finish.

Certainly a bit off-the-wall, but I'm not so quick to dismiss this as a novelty. Its a really interesting beer and marriage of flavours, once it settles a bit it is quite tasty, not over bitter but with a refreshing bitter coffee bitterness. Enjoyed it for the interesting approach, though not exactly convinced how it works together and priced too high.

330ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Pale orangish amber in color. Foggy appearance. Yellowish white foam quickly dissipates while leaves a thin layer on top. Strong resiny, piney & woody aromas. As expected from aromas, flavor presents a bitter resiny & woody touch. Unexpected coffee notes are present too. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Dense oily texture. Fruity hints & sharp bitterness shown into the finish. Subtle but increasing coffee flavor rounds the aftertaste. Interesting beer.

Coffee IPA pours a brownish cloudy color with a large head. There is a strong floral aroma with weak hints of coffee. The taste is stronger on the IPA side; stronger hoppy floral tastes, that finishes with the coffee flavors; sweeter end. Needs a little more carbonation, but still a good pretty full flavor. Overall an interesting beer, a change from routine IPAs.

1 pint 9.4 ounce bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is murky. The color is dark amber, almost rust colored. I was expecting it to appear darker. There are some light amber to golden highlights. A rocky, tan head is stacked on top.

S - I immediately notice citrus. I do not notice much of a coffee aroma.

T - The taste has the coffee in it. It has citrus flavor as well. It tastes like a weak black IPA.

M - Medium

O - It is an interesting beer. There is enough flavor to make it quaffable, but not enough flavor to blow anyone's mind. The price is awfully high for a slightly above average beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep amber color with a very large, fluffy, light, bubbly, white head. Good retention with a nice layer of lacing.

S - Heavy on the hop aroma with bitter and sweet grapefruit along with a decent amount of pine. Not much coffee aroma but after searching for it there was a slight medium roast coffee along with a light touch of caramel malt. Sweet fruity aroma.

T - Starts with prickly bitter hop flavor. Loads of sweet and bitter grapefruit along with plenty of juicy fruit. Decent pine presence as well. Slight caramel flavor mid sip. Finishes with a slight coffee finish, not a heavy roasted stout flavor but just a light finish.

M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Crisp and fairly spritzy feel.

D - Really drinkable IPA. Plenty of hop flavor with an interesting coffee twist on the finish. Drinkable and balanced IPA that I kept wanting to drink.

Notes: Interesting IPA that on its own is solid. The coffee on the finish is interesting, albeit subtle, but it doesn't add a whole lot to the beer. Solid IPA with plenty of hop flavor. Nice IPA but nothing too outstanding even with the coffee addition.
