Botella. Presencia ligeramente turbia, dorada con corona poco persistente. Aroma potente a resina, ahumado, algo de cafe y mucha especia. En boca seca de principio a fin curiosa mezcla de café con lúpulos resinoso. Final largo amargo y muy especial

Can't believe this poured orange and not dark. Very cloudy orange and thick looking. Doesn't taste like it looks. Quick dissipating head. Heavy beer. Coffee taste for sure but definatly has all the IPA attributes. One of a kind beer. Never had anything like it. Quality shit

Pours a cloudy orange with a beige head and sweet aroma of hops, citrus and coffee. Taste is bittersweet, of hops, citrus, caramel, coffee, some fruit and cream which come with a dry, hoppy finish. Unique brew, never had an IPA with coffee
