Rust orange in appearance with and quickly dissipating thin head.

Smells of sweet roasted coffee, caramel, and slight hop tang.

Immediately got a taste of sweet cotton candy drizzled in mocha syrup, tasty but out there.

Mouthfeel is a bit more thin than I would like in an IPA.

Overall a mediocre brew but tasty nonetheless.

Just finished off a pound of Devil's Lettuce coffee today, seems like the natural progression to try a beer made with it. The coffee was described as having an herbaceous quality, though I never really picked it up.

Dark amber orange, somewhat hazed with ample foam and drippy lacing all around the glass. Golden orange in the lower meniscus of the glass.

Soft roasty coffee aroma, slight undercurrent of Nelson Sauvin that lends a slight lemon tea note.

Starts a little mellow, coffee and hop bitterness builds and intertwines well. Bitter roasty coffee aftertaste, toast with lemon marmalade. Medium bodied and smooth, an interesting mix that drinks well, the coffee comes to the forefront, though the hops do bring out it's alleged herbaceous qualities.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #537-538 printed on the label. Finally got a hold of this coffee IPA from Pipeworks, courtesy of my local beer store.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a coppery burnt sienna orange body with about a finger of frothy white head. Leaves good sticky spotty lacing behind on the glass. Appears adequately carbonated. Looks very nice.

S - The aroma is nice and pleasant - smooth juicy citrusy / herbal hops - mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and the authentic grinded / roasted coffee beans. Notes of vanilla, cream, and lactose are apparent also.

T - The taste is pretty much exactly what I would have expected from a Pipeworks coffee IPA. Juicy & citrusy / herbal, with just the right amount of bitter coffee bean roast. Some sweet, milky lactose sugars are apparent players also.

M - The feel is smooth and creamy, medium-bodied with good carbonation. Lightly sticky / sugary on the aftertaste, with mild coffee roastiness lingering.

Overall, a very nice take on the 'coffee IPA' from Pipeworks; sort of a mish mash of everything I like about their beers. Definitely worth picking up if it is available to you.

Pipeworks Attack Of The Devil's Lettuce -----4/5.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Pipeworks Brewing Company branded snifter/short-stemmed tulip

Pours amber with darker brown hues some orange highlights and capped by a slightly off-white two finger head. Slightly below average retention with traces of lacing. Unpleasant stale coffee, herbal notes, and citrus accents. Opens with clashing acrid coffee and citrusy hops some malt sweetness midpalate. Finishes with a wholly unpalatable bitter combination of more stale coffee bitterness and bitter lemony hops. Smooth mouthfeel, heavy medium to light full body. Moderate carbonation. Nothing works from beginning to end here except a decent mouthfeel. I really enjoy the large majority of Pipeworks brews, but I have to be honest with this one: it's an absolute mess that lacks even a trace of cohesiveness and just plain tastes terrible.
