A fine I.P.A. Not as strong a coffee taste as I expected. Different and worth a try.

I like it, IPA's are my Drink-O-Choice and this is different enough to make me want more. Pours the hazy copper-orange that everyone suggests, has a grapefruit like nose that to me is absent of coffee. Good lacing and what not, great mouthfeel with a well balance of sweetness and carbonation. Im really impressed with the taste. Nice fruity IPA that finishes with a hint of coffee. If you're a IPA freak looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, give it a shot. Cheers!

Review from tasting notes. May 2011 with Northyorksammy.

This beer was a beast. Poured with a massive off-white head, dense unfiltered orange brew. Huge hop presence on the nose.

Taste was powerful full IPA, very huge malt structure to support very agressive bittering.

I didn't get very much coffee at all in the flavor, though there was a toasted or roasty character to the beer that didn't belong in an IPA. I'll assume that was from the coffee beans.

Overall, an incredible IPA. Thanks to Ken for sharing this one with us.

A: Pours hazy orange with a very large off-white compact creamy head. Slow dissipation leaves rich lacings.

S: The Tomahawk hops gives it rich floral bitter hoppy vibe. Piney, pineapple, citric fruits, grapefruit. Caramell malt with some sweetness. Nice balance.

T: Caramell malt, sweet. Some obvious Tomahawk hops; bitter and floral. Piney; pineapple, grapefruit. After a while the coffee kicks in; strong black. A mild dark bitter chocolate backbone.

M: The aftertaste is really long and holds dry bitterness. Body is medium and carbonation is very mild. A dry beverage.

O: A very nice IPA where the Tomahawk hops and the coffee work great together.
