3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of Someister- thanks Sean! Typical IPA flavors upfront- pine, some citrus, balanced fruitiness. But towards the back-end, I got the roasty coffee flavors. I closed my eyes & almost thought I was drinking a mild black-IPA. Pretty good! Mikkeller surprises me again!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, deep orange with a 1 finger head that quickly dissipates. Not much on nose, a little caramel and coffee. Taste is pine forward with the right amount of city roasted coffee, that’s right my palate can discern the roast profile bro. Awesome lingering bitter finish. When I first heard of coffee ipa, I was like no way. It truly works very well together, really fucks up your palate in a good way. Enjoyable brew I would happily buy again.

Draught. Hazy copper liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fresh coffee, grass, pine, mango, biscuit and grain. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of coffee, citrus, mango, pine, biscuit and tangerine. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Worked better than I thought it would.

Not entirely unpleasant, but not great either. Strange funkiness alongside the coffee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a ridiculously big foamy off white head, eventually settled down. Aroma of cold coffee, citrus, grapefruit, slightly piney. Similar taste, cold coffee, citrus and pine, little soapy. Medium body with a bitter and slightly sticky finish. Can’t decide if I like this and I’m not sure that it works particularly well. I feel it would be better without the coffee. It’s alright though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly surprised at the colour of this on pouring. Initial head had a yellowy tinge to it. Cloudy amber colour light malty hoppy aroma. Hint of toffee. Slightly excess carbonation for me and a lighter taste and body than i’d expected. Muted hops and malty. Sorry no coffee. Bitter hop finish and hides its abv well. Weird and slightly boring for this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Hazy orange amber colour, bubbly off-white head that diminishes and floral, hoppy caramel aroma. Fizzy caramel malt taste, spicey orange & slight coffee notes with an earthy bitterness that lingers. Light bodied, highly carbonated, dry finish. Quite OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy mild amber,heady -foamy.Very well carbonated.
Nose is dry mildy woody with some sweet fruit undertones, very slight roast,with slight toffee.
Taste is malty dry some dry oakiness,seems like roast malts in finish barely,othewise I wouldnt know coffee was really in it. Farily hoppy moreso in taste,seems pretty belgiany also.Could possibly be pretty aged.The bittering seems to mute any coffee presence. I just taste a fairly hoppy beer with maybe a roasty(roast-malt like) not coffe like, edge to it. Very faint mocha like off and on though.Seems belgiany though not shure if its supposed to.Possibly infected? Its pretty heady and carbed.Its pretty good though. I liked stones/2 bro colaberation of Daytime more.Although a strange beer.
