Counter Culture Coffee and All About Beer Magazine have collaborated with Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to create “No Middle Ground,” a limited-edition IPA made with cold-brewed coffee. The beer features washed Haru from Ethiopia and an experimental hop known as “291,” giving the beer a bright, fruit-forward flavor profile. No Middle Ground will be available on tap during special tasting events at Counter Culture’s eight regional training centers.

On tap at the Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room

A: Pours deep golden amber with a frothy white head that settles and laces well.

S: Coffee, some kinda herbal hops, and some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Assertive coffee hits first and lingers, some pine and herbal hop notes, a little light citrus and fruity notes, and a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: First time I've gotten to try a coffee IPA. Different but very cool.

A: Hazy, Golden color, Foamy head around the side of the cup
S: Citrus, Roasty
M: Medium body, effervescent
T: Notes of bitter dark chocolate, citrus, blueberry; roasty, coffee finish

Disclaimer: Only had a small tasting (about 6 ounces) at a release party, but was really impressed with this beer. Really bad ass to do a coffee IPA!
