UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Bought at Cost Plus World Market for $5.99, Cold Brew IPA is an IPA blended with cold brew coffee from Stumptown brewed by Rogue Ales.
The scent of coffee, hops, and caramel are noted as you drink. The appearance is a chestnut hue along with a low khaki head. The alcohol content is 7.5%.
Coffee is constant from start to finish and has a robust character. Bitterness is experienced on the take and in the finish. Caramel is tasted with the coffee complexion. 2-Row, Rogue Farms Dare and Risk, C-40, White Wheat, Rolled Oats, and Kiln Coffee malts are used; Rolled Oats is easily discernible with the coffee texture to the mouthfeel. Rogue Farms Liberty, Rebel, and Freedom hops, and Simcoe Hops are used; Simcoe is recognizable in the finish.
Cold Brew IPA is a scrumptious IPA. The water quality of the beer helps give the coffee aspect to the beer an iced coffee flavor. The hops have a pleasant touch to the mouthfeel. The malts compliment the caramel and coffee body. This brew is really tasty and captures the flavor of the coffee used. At 7.5% and leaving you to want more, this beer is exactly what my father means by “wide awake drunk.”
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

Can. Pours hazy copper brown wit airy off-white head. Clear, intense aroma of hops and malt, with estery notes. Bitter, hoppy and roasty flavour of hops and coffee, with notes of malt and yeast. Bitter and coffeelike aftertaste with mild acidic hints. High carbonation. Decent stuff. flemmingwillum (1246) - Nysted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2018 Mørk gylden uden skum. Let sød med let hindbær og kaffegrums. Bitter IPA med kaffefilter efterfølgende. Medium fylde . Et mærkeligt Mix der ikke fungerer helt optimalt . Øllen er dog velbrygget. YantarCoast (1662) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 1, 2018
Small sample kindly shared by vinivini at Beer Happens in Moscow. Opaque amber with a good off-white head. Aroma is earth, piney hops, faint coffee. Taste is cold coffee and earth, some caramel, medium bitterness. Not my sort of IPA. vinivini (3247) - Gomel, BELARUS - JAN 31, 2018
