This brew is a clear dark golden color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, coffee and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, subtle roasted coffee and toasted malt. The finish is roasty with a coffee and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Can served in a tulip. This version says 6.5% abv. Pours hazy gold with a medium sized head. I’m surprised about this one as I was expecting a more classic IPA. Looks like one, but keep in mind... Java=Coffee. The dark coffee roast smacks you in the face and dominates the brew. Well made, interesting, and highly drinkable. The hops come on late and aid in the extremely dry, moderately bitter finish.

Can @ KISS Cafe. Pours cloudy golden pale with medium white head. Lots of chunky suspended sediment. Aroma is big earthy fresh roasted coffee and light citrusy hops. Taste is sweet pale malt up front, quickly overwhelmed by huge fresh espresso bean flavor, then bitter juicy grapefruit hops on the back. Honestly not a flavor combo I would have picked but it does work surprisingly well together. More coffee here than in Stone’s version of this style, that was more IPA heavy.

22 oz can poured a surprisingly light gold color with good fizz. Slight coffee aroma added to the great floral hops. The taste is unique and I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I do. The bitter coffee flavors marry very well with the hops. Balanced and refreshing. I could have this for breakfast. Awesome brew from a much respected brewery.

Reid (1805) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2014
16 oz can bought from ’Lifesource" in Salem OR. $2.59 Pours a slightly hazy orange with a large creamy off white head ( about 1 inch). Got a quick whiff of medium roasted coffee then the floral and citric hops take over.After a while the coffee comes back and i find it goes surprisingly well with the hops! Taste is very strange the coffee being much stronger than in the aroma..medium to dark roast..tasty and the hops take a back seat. Really nice palate smooth and medium to heavy body. Great after taste of coffee. I really like this i had no idea that coffee could mix with an IPA but it works for me. and the alc says 6.5%

16oz can pours a slight hazy orange color with a bunch of sediment floating around and a thick foamy off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of coffee beans, chocolate, citrus and pine. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Wow what a great beer. The coffee and hops work nice together surprisingly. I think this might be better than the Dayman coffee ipa collaboration stone did last year.

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Growler from tin bucket with Willi. pours a hazy off gold with off-white foam. Smells of cold brew coffee with a hint of lemon. Tastes very bitter with lots of coffee and herbal, earthy hops.

On tap at Belmont. A clear golden color (dark) with a medium white head. A sweet nose mostly of coffee. The flavor is similarly dominated by coffee, some light vanilla, fruity hops, orange bitterness. Dry. OK. I’m not the biggest coffee guy.

Tasty. Weirdly dry with coffee on the nose and in the finish. Smooth, as always from these guys. A good but strange ale.
