1.8/5 rDev -52%
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.

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.
