Keg at Fat Heads, PDX, 09/11/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is big coffee grinds, citric peel, bitter orange, light smoke, melon, hops. Taste comprises coffee beans, coffee cake, hop presence, light citric notes, orange pith, backdoor grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid stuff, top draw coffee IPA, this works for me!

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2014
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.

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. Iím not the biggest coffee guy.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Can: † Coffee aroma, soft hop, a bit soil like. † Fairly good balance on the tongue, hoppy, a bit more citrusy but still a touch of soil, with a coffee background. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Wished the hoppiness were a tad sweeter to counteract the coffee. † Decent otherwise.

Would have been a wish lister if I hadnít just added it. FtG is solid, and this newish beer sounded really cool. Found a single at Johnís Market. Aroma instantly hits the nose. Big nose of 80% coffee (so nice) and 20% hops. Hazy golden ale. Hard to tell if this is fresh and the hops are supposed to take a back seat, or if itís sat. No date. Either way, pretty damn good beer. Sessionable yet contemplative (love that kinda beer)...wonderful roasted coffee flavor as well with an underpining of cirus and earthy hops. If this were slightly more balanced it would have scored even higher

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Can from 5000. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some coffee notes with some orange citrus and pine notes thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get some bitter coffee notes as well as some chocolate, orange and pine. The hops really dominate but you can definitely get some coffee in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2013
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.

BuckeyeBoy (2867) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a long lasting white head. Nose is holy coffee spicy jalapeno and a nice hop kick. Taste is as the nose with lots of coffee and spice. A little bitterness on the end.

luttonm (2427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Tall can in Seattle. Darker brown-tinged orange. Good white foam. Dry, sharp aroma that Iíd also associate with peppers if I didnít 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.
