Coffee has an odd flavor. Dominates every with the fluffer base.

Had at Kuhnhenn's newer location in Clinton Township.

Great stuff. I'm a fan of Bean Flicker by Odd Side, and I think I prefer this one... something about it is so refreshing. There's a perfect carbonation, a pleasant citrus finish with the coffee -- it's just right on. The aroma is especially like fresh coffee, and the taste is loaded with it as well, but it's nice and balanced with the IPA base. The finish isn't particularly bitter, which makes this very drinkable. Thankfully, this doesn't drink watery like many 4.5%/"light" IPAs. I prefer this to Fluffer by a decent margin. Definitely worth a try if you enjoy coffee.
