COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An IPA matching coffee to hops. Coffee can be full of fruity aromatic character, and we all know what hops do to an IPA. Here we’ve made them sing together. Same choir, same song.

Note: Uses Nicaraguan beans from 7 Seeds and Cascade and Galaxy hops.

This is great. Like taking the coffee grounds without the astringent acidity and mixing it with a top class IPA. Unique and very fun. These Cross Breeds are generally always very, very good.

Clear amber color, medium off-White head. Nice fruity Nose. Taste is fruity, with slightly undertones of coffee shortly. Medium bitter, medium body. Soft carbonation. Good IPA with succesfull twist.

M_Sack (364) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2013
I was really looking forward to this beer but it just fails to deliver any excitement. Hazy amber in colour. Citrusy hops and a distinct coffee aroma. The citrus and coffee was again present on the palate but I just found they didn't successfully mesh together.

Sevenlee (1294) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is malt, coffee, fruit, caramel and some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a dry hoppy and well-balanced finish. Good one!

NBird (356) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2013
2013 bottle. Yellow/golden/amber, sml- med head. Smells..grapefruity citrus hops, caramel, sniffing hard for coffee though. Tastes grapefruit, piney and resinous, some caramel and it’s quite nicely bitter. Apart from being sensational.. it was not at all a coffee exp for me.I had one of these last year in Brisbane, it was memorably coffee delicious. This is a very good ipa all the same.

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
Pours brown amber. Aroma is hoppy caramel. Flavour has almost no discernible coffee flavour but is heavy on the hops. Very good ipa but needs more pronounced coffee to be called a coffee ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

varanid99 (491) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2013
Cloudy dark gold pour with a thin white head. Tiny bit of coffee on the nose, some caramel, but mostly big floral smell. Fairly mild bitterness at first with some smokiness, hint of espresso, stone fruits, and then the bitterness cuts through nicely at the end. Very moreish.
