Hazy orange with a foamy, lasting head with great lace. Thick and chewy texture; slightly cloying in the finish. Warming alcohol. Have to admit, I really have to concentrate to find the coffee / espresso, and I probably wouldn’t pick it up if it didn’t say Coffee on the label. Hop aromas are great (sweet and floral). Hop flavors, not so much. The bitterness is kind of stark, tannic and muddled. ttroha (516) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Hop City Birmingham. Pours transparent brown with white head. Aroma of flora, citrus and hops. Tastes of bitter hops, citrus, and bitter hops. Don’t taste much coffee. Very hoppy. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a transparent amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of hops and coffee. Taste of bitterness with some coffee and malts. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Copper colored pour, white head. Interesting beer. The bitterness of the hops and coffee bitterness seem to meld together. Very strong coffee flavor, resiny hops, malt. snoworsummer (5694) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2014

Bottle. Pours murky copper with thick, frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel and toasted malts, floral and spicy hops, subtle coffee notes, and some fig. Flavor is dry malt base with sharp hop bitterness accented by the coffee, faint caramel sweetness, and some spicy alcohol notes; bitterness lingering through the finish. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. VastActiv (7041) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at Pub Graali, Oulu. Originally rated 19052012. Colour is cloudy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, coffee, hops and malts. johndoughty (5438) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle. Yellow slightly cloudy appearance. Medium head. Coffee and vanilla dominate with hops in the background. A bit risky mixing these flavours together but it paid off. jookos (6762) - FINLAND - MAY 25, 2014

Cloudy amber. Strong ground espresso beans, but strangely enough citrus, green berry, too on nose. Full bodied. Coffee beans, caramel, some chocolate. Med dry, well bittered. Drinks actually quite easy. Strange one, the coffee is so intense, but still sort of iipaish. I could probably do this again.. after some time.

Bottle pour murky brownish orange. Nose very similar to overall iipa, dank hop, over ripe fruit , and caramel, but with the addition of coffee. Taste bitter up front, dank hop, followed by bitterness and flavor from the coffee. Roasty coffee finish mixed with some bitterness. Oily mouth feel. I’m a big fan of coffee ipa and saisons, but I think this one could ave played off sweet flavors better.
