Hazy amber with a large, tan head.
Loads of pea-like coffee-bean-aroma.
Also some citric, flowery hoppiness in the flavour. drpimento (3630) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2011
This is another beer this evening that is very good but not like what the lable proclaims. Let it warm out of the fridge. Poured with a very nice, foamy, frothy, fluffy, slow to settle, cream colored head and lots of lace. Aroma is mainly hop with a little malt and grass. Very little coffee present anywhere. Flavor is where the coffee barely shows up. But, mainly it’s just a good work a day IPA. Body is good and ditto carbonation. Finish is fairly long and like flavor. Booze shows up too. Could be a session. Graded it lower cause I don’t know where the coffee is. Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko and manuchampions. Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a lasting white head. Aroma of roasted coffee, caramel, roasted malts, and hops. Flavour of heavily roasted coffee, roasted malts, wood, hops and light smoke. Medium bodied, light hops, unusually roasty for an IPA. Average.

11/08/2011 33cl @ Klaas’ place (2011-379) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!mkel07 (5949) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2011
Bit cloudy dark orange to light red beer, beige to yellowish irregular head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, hops, bit sweet. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity, passion fruits, bit sweet, hops, citrus. Hop bitters, still pretty fruity with pineapple, no coffee though.
330ml bottle. I never tire of pouring a great IPA and this one is no exception. Slightly murky orange with a full head. Floral hops with a hint of coffee. Smells a bit like if you leave your cup of coffee and come back 1/2 an hour later and it is cold. Tastes of coffee with a long finish. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
On tap. I was surprised at how well this works. It still is a bit muddled and raw but it is okay. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is some mocca, a touch of hops, touch of smoke, some yeasty fruit. Flavour is watery mocca with some hops, quite bitter. Huge mocca with some smoke in the finish. Very nice. A bit weird but very nice. Could use more hop. Not really an ipa imho, very good though. roytheboy (13) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Aroma - Bite down on a freshly dark-roasted coffee bean
Appearance - warm and cloudy
Taste - fooled by the aroma, the briefest moment of a west-coast IPA quickly followed by a freshly cracked coffee bean, long finish.
Palate - everything; crisp but quickly filling with body, tart, bitter, earthy
Overall - a wonderful and challenging distraction from the classical IPAs.
