Aleman / Two Brothers / Stone - Dayman Coffee IPAAleman / Two Brothers / Stone - Dayman Coffee IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.70%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Usual yellow and gold pour, small head on it, less than a quarter inch, and it quickly vanished into thin air. The smells, oh my lord, the smells. Coffee and hops just land an overhand right square on the nose. So much coffee, but the hops are second place, but its a very strong second.

Continues to blast you with hops and coffee on the palate. Ever had MIkkeller's coffee ipa? Well that sucks compared to this. Seriously, one of the best and most unique ipas I've ever had. Citra hops and coffee, together at last. Not all that bitter either.

Golden pour, almost 1/4" head, offwhite, not much in the lacing and retention department. Aroma was just awesome. Coffee was pungent and brought a smile to my face. Hops came in second place in the aroma category.

Taste, blew me away, the hops jump up into their respective spot while coffee just crushes it. Mouthfeel is phenomenal. Perfect really it blends everything in the right ratios. My all time favorite ipa that Stone makes.
