An interesting idea that worked out well. The coffee fits in well among the citrus and sweet malt flavors. Would definitely seek this one out again.

Tap @ brewery. Golden with thin head and decent lacing. I think I’m getting apricot and coffee in the nose. Tastes like a chili beer.

Pours a clear light orange. Dominant coffee aroma which leaves it difficult to detect pretty much anything else. Definitely astringent and somewhat sour.

Sampled on tap at Church. Very mild coffee aroma with neutral fruit sweetness. No discernible hop aroma. Pale golden clear with white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-light carbonation. Starts with pale malt sweetness and light coffee. Interesting to have this flavor in a light-colored beer for a change. Finish is coffee and nutty sweet, with good hoppy bitter punch.

This one poured a bright orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of light citrusy and green hops, with a solid amount of coffee. Flavor was mainly coffee, green pepper, citrusy hops. Overall nicely done.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear pale orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, bready malt, roasted malt, roasted nuts, toffee. Flavor of coffee grounds along with your pale malts, floral hops, light citrus with more coffee in the finish. Interesting beer- it has plenty coffee but still maintains the pale ale base and isn’t too heavy. I wasn’t sure I would like this concept, but it’s quite delicious!
