COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An odd couple can make for some of the most incredibly unique tastiness. Take Hotbox Coffee IPA (7.2% ABV, 70 IBUs) for example - a piney, citrus, mango, Simcoe-hopped IPA and an infusion of cold brew extract made with Hotbox Roasters’ Ethiopian beans poppin’ with creamy blueberry and cacao notes.

Can. Coffee aroma with notes of pine resiny, grapefruit and mango hops. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with mango and grapefruit hops with light notes of coffee in the background. Finishes dry with pine resiny hop bitterness and roasted coffee flavors that linger on the palate after each sip. Different and the coffee and hops balances each other out pretty well.

Can, Wine Warehouse. Hazy pale gold with a white head. Aroma is coffee, orange and grapefruit, pine, mango, chocolate... it smells a bit odd but it's a pleasant oddness. Flavor is coffee on top of grapefruit peel, cocoa, berry - yea, that is blueberry, pine, caramel malt. Enjoyable.

Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light on the coffee (unexpectedly), it's mostly fruit - citrus, mango, pine. Taste is similar up front - the pine, citrus come through, but then the coffee follows. It's not overpowering but definitely there. Bitter finish, resin, and a bit of coffee.

355ml can. Pours a hazy gold with a medium, foamy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pine needles and coffee with a biscuit malt backbone. Sweet flavour of mango, caramel, grapefruit, pine needles, grass and biscuit malt in the background with a dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not picking up any blueberry notes but was still ok.

Can, picked up at the Co-Op. Pours clear golden, large white fluffy head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is pine and oranges, perhaps a hint of coffee. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, pine, grapefruit, touch of coffee. Pretty subdued on the coffee scale, but not bad. Medium body. soft mouthfee.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2017
12oz can pours with a clear gold body that supports a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma starts with a dash of coffee then a nice dose of mango and then bigger earthy coffee and finally grapefruit and more mango toward the end of the draw. The taste is similar as tangelo and mango jump at you along with roasty coffee and then flowing into a nice earthy coffee sensation. To midway the fruity juiciness ramps up to take over the experience. Pretty nice.
