Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Not my cup of tea...or coffee I guess.
This is probably my least favorite from Stone. I can see why other like enjoy it though. To be honest I'm not huge on many of Stone's IPAs. They carry too much floral tones for me. I do really enjoy their Porters and Stouts though.

This pours like an IPA. It looks like an IPA just a tint darker. The smell of hops and coffee are there. You get the coffee taste and the hops. Like I said, I hate to even rate this one as I can see why others go crazy over it, just not for me.

A: High clarity with little head and no legs. Pours like an IPA surprisingly
S:
T: Strong hops at the front with a good deal of finishing hops; traditional Stone IPA. the unique aspect is at the end with a bitter coffee left on the tongue. Nothing crazy on the taste outside of the good traditional with a coffee kick.
M: medium mouthfeel and medium-heavy carbonation.
O: One of the best hybrids I have ever enjoyed. Keeps IPA at the front but finishes with a bitter coffee back. Another remarkable creation from Stone
