10 oz glass at Tyler’s Apex. 8/4/11. Good aroma, sweet. more coffee than hops. get a little orange now and again. Cloudy brownish orange, no head or lace. Sweet flavor. Lite body, oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. OK, not alot of ipa invovled, Nice coffee aroma and flavor, more like a flavored coffee drink.....worth a try, but didn’t have a second.

mcberko (9732) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
330mL bottle, split with manuchampions and Matts_Property, pours hazy golden orange with a big off-white head. Aroma of espresso, roasted malts, a little caramel and slight cedary hops - doesn’t hint at an IPA. Flavour also seems anything but an IPA - coffee, roasted malt, a little citrus hops, but muted. Nice experiment, mildly enjoyable, but not overly stimulating.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011
Hazy orange with a huge head. Strong hoppy aroma, dusty and dry. I simply cannot smell nor taste the guji coffee ... The hops seem to clench everything, making it rater onedimensional bitter. I was not very fond of the tomahawk IPA, and this version is pretty much the same to me. Perhaps, I’m missing something subtle here.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Shared by CapFlu. Nice amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is light coffee, background hoppiness, caramel. Taste is very interesting, an initial coffee bitterness complementing the hoppiness secondary, with mild warming, and mild caramel.

CapFlu (4820) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
(33cl) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store. Pours a thin, quick dissipating head and deep clouded orange body. Nose is ashy, mild coffee and hoppy bitterness. Wonderful! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a rich amber. Nose is hops and rich malts. I’m not feeling the coffee. What I get is the malt yeast base that I love so much from this brewer. Nicely hopped with some serious west coast hops. Strong bitter finish.

larsga (6767) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2011
Big pale tan head. Clear reddish amber body. (WTF? I read coffee IPA as "black IPA," but apparently not.) Deep resiny tropical fruit aroma with wooden spicy coffee notes. Dry-sweet mango and coffee taste with resiny tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry coffee and tropical fruit aftertaste with minkly dusty resiny notes. Interesting. My mind has real difficulties reconciling these two flavours, but the combination actually works just fine, somehow. (0.33l bottle, Salling, Århus.)

stravale (2525) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle @ The Anderson, Fortrose
Appearance - Amber, hazy, big rocky off white head, good lacing.
Aroma - Lots of orange, grapefruit citrus hops and a little coffee.
Taste - Orange, grapefruit citrus hops, some resin / pine notes, marmalade. Espresso roast coffee comes through afterwards from the background, good taste, not strong, does not overpower the hops and sits harmoniously well next to the citrus hops, making the beer well-balanced, for two so different flavours.
Palate - Moderate carbonation, just right for the beer. Hoppy, tingeling mouthfeel with a gentle coffee finish.
Overall - Crazy combination that works because the coffee is gentle and not over done. Good job, Mikkeller!

My first experience with a coffee IPA was a few years back when I had 90M randle’d through coffee. That was gross as was this.
