Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Rollzroyce21 on 03-20-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Jim Moorehouse, Nate Albrecht and Brad Zeller, three pals planning to open a Chicago brewpub under the moniker of Aleman, won first place at last year's Iron Brew homebrewing competition in the Windy City (judged by none other than Greg Koch, Jason Ebel of Two Brothers Brewing, and celebrated Chicago brewer, designer and author Randy Mosher). Their style-bending IPA artfully married the assertive tropical bite of Citra hops with amazing coffee flavor and aromatics to create something truly unique and exceptional.

Serendipitously, Two Brothers recently kicked off a new adventure roasting their own coffee beans, and provided just-in-time freshly roasted java for the brew. The result is an innovative IPA that's well balanced and intensely flavored thanks to the felicitous blend of hops and fresh roasted coffee.

Poured into a snifter

A: Clear amber with a white half-finger head. Decent lacing.

S: Grainy hops. Coffee. A nice blend of the two.

T: Wow. Love this mix of light coffee and grassy hops. Coffee isn't overpowering as in some coffee flavored beers. Hops are smooth and not biting. A great blend.

M: Medium with smooth and creamy carbonation.

O: Highly recommended. Different, in a very good way.

A- A medium amber colored body with some highlights of gold and tan. Mostly transparent with a sticky off-white head.

S- Lots of roasted coffee grounds come through first, then there is a wave of juicy, tropical hop aroma. Lot really muddled either, both aromas come through nicely.

T- Really interesting combination of flavors here, but I expected that going in. Again, the coffee and the juicy hops both come through in a big way. Tons of roasty coffee grounds bouncing off of the juicy, hoppy flavors. I get a tiny bit more coffee than IIPA flavors, but the combination is seamless. Tasty, roasty after taste.

M- Medium carbonation, full flavor, very crisp and smooth like most Stone beers.

O- For such an unexpected combination, this one is done incredibly well. Great flavors come through and provide a great experience.

Pours copper with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Coffee, biscuitty malt & grapefruit, plus pine

T: Coffee grinds, pine, grapefruit up front. Woody hops, dryness & more coffee as this warms, much grapefruit as well as this warms. Dry with much coffee & grapefruit in the finish

MF: Medium bodied, dry, subtle carbonation, good balance

Coffee IPA doesn't make me think"match made in heaven". This has a good flavor profile, but give me a coffee stout or a hop bomb, mixing them together doesn't float my boat all the way to the promised land. This is about as good as a coffee IPA is gonna get, no need to plow this field again:P

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours a dark copper with a 2 finger light beige head. Big bubbly wall of lacing with random bubbles on the glass.

S- caramel, toffee, coffee, toast, pine.

T- toffee, toasted malts, coffee, faint citrus, and pine.

M- medium body and carbonation. Creamy with a light dryness.

O- I didn't have much expectations going in, but I have to admit this is a pretty tasty beer. Coffee is very smooth, not overly bitter or ashy, and works well with the toasted malts and pine.

Served out of a bottle in my dogfish ipa glass

This is an amazing blend of a delicious IPA and coffee. I was extremely skeptical, but since it was Stone I gave it a chance. It is so unique you will not be disappointed. It has an amazing aroma. Overall, it taste like amazingness

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this one

A - amber with a thin, off white head

S - coffee beans, citrusy hop aroma

T - coffee, citrus, woody, earthy

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This was really intriguing. I admit I had my doubts going in. I was really impressed. The coffee beans surprisingly work well with the citrusy hop character. The beer is coffee heavy but has all of the true-to-style IPA hop notes. This is definitely a beer I'm glad I tried.
