stravale (2234) - 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.

sloth (2520) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Medium sized tan head with fair retention and an ok lace. A bit hazy amber color. Nose is different, citrusy notes with light spent coffee grains and some mild malt notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, mildly resinous. Neat flavors of grapefruit, coffee, light roast and a hint chocolatey with some caramel maltiness too. Finish is dry, roasty hoppy. Interesting brew. Bottle from statelineliquors.

skoisirius (1727) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle from Bier Stein in Eugene, OR. Pours a darker golden with a hint of orange. Not a huge aroma on this guy. Mild malt, mild hop, and an ever slight hint at light coffee. Flavor is fairly...simple. Not sure if I was having wild expectations or not, but it comes off as a really well balanced single IPA with undertones of roast, cocoa, and butter somehow. All the while very smooth, low carbonation, and that’s about that. Really good, but was hoping to taste the coffee a bit more I guess.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Pours a nice dark golden colour with a big brownish head aroma is strong coffee and a light spice of hops. The taste is smooth roast coffee and little caramel that goes together very good

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 14, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 On keg at the Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh for their IPA Wars. The beer was a light golden brown colour with a thin beige head. Coffee aroma with some sweetness, malt and honey at the back. Tastes quite sweet with coffee, fruity hops, pine and peach flavours. Lingering coffee. Too sweet for me (6,3,6,3 14). In a bottle at Heriot Watt. Pours a golden brown colour with a lovely aroma of coffee, pine, caramel and honey. Similar flavours. Much prefer to the keg version.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Poured an almost reddish brown. Smell was pretty lackluster, but it was a very intriguing taste. Extremely smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and you can taste the slight hint of coffee. It certainly doesn’t overwhelm the beer, though. Interesting, but nothing too crazy.

Bottle courtesy of my good friend Durhambeer! Danke! Pours a hazy reddish golden color with a huge withe head and good lace. The aroma is based around the hops and has very little coffee that I can detect, mild bits of malt sweetness shine through but it’s mostly a good deal of piney hoppiness with some mild fruit. The coffee is very subtle but noticeable in the flavor and this is again more about the hops, which are piney and moderately bitter. Very little of that malt sweetness from the aroma shows up in the flavor, I expected more caramel but honestly I’m getting more coffee. Some of the acidity from the coffee lingers and makes the coffee almost stronger in the finish, either way it’s subtle. All together this is very fruity and is by all means a very delicious IPA.
