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.

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.

Tall can in Seattle. Darker brown-tinged orange. Good white foam. Dry, sharp aroma that I’d also associate with peppers if I didn’t know this was a coffee beer. Smooth beer with a huge overtone of coffee and spicy pepper. Rich malt, tart, sharp note. Interesting but not great.

Salmoniform (674) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Poured from tallboy to glass. Clear, light straw hue with foamy white head that lasted nicely. Aroma is impressive with essences of coffee, citrus, honey, straw, melons, tangerine. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry sweet initially with a nice hop bitterness following and a nice CO2 bite in the finish. Overall, I was greatly impressed with this brew! Very nicely done!

Brand New Can -White chocolate and virgin coffee beans blended with truffles and citrus. Beautiful golden pour, nice full creamy body with a light coffee flavors lift off the tongue followed by citrus and pine, very refreshing and complex, earthy with acidic depth from the Ethiopian Bean. Reminds me of Boulevards Chocolate Ale yet hoppier. The perfect blend, they knocked it out of the park.

Tap @ 15th Ave. Hophouse... Poured cloudy golden/amber with a moderate head. Espresso beans on the nose. Nice mouthfeel, carbonation was just right and sort of drying towards the finish. Tasted of cold pressed coffee with some resinous hop bitterness. As it warmed malt sweetness came in for balance.
