Tap at Global Brew O’Fallon. This was very opaque and bright golden orange. Cool looking. Aromas of tropical fruit and green coffee. Big hops are tasted with citrus and tropical and they seem very fresh. The green coffee beans are a bit behind and add very nicely. These all compliment and make for a really nice sipping beer.

Bottle: pours a hazy dark orange with a smallish white head. Aromas are citrusy and bready. Bathe flavor is amazingly complex.... Citrus and coffee... Bready. The coffee comes through subtlety, but is a wonderful compliment. Man... This is delicious.

Poured at tasting, a cloudy darker amber. I really can’t pick out a flavor in the aroma or taste dept. Amazingly complex. In the aroma i get some coffee but not dark roast maybe green beans. Some hay, straw and malts. The taste is amazing, it has citrus IPA tones at its coldest and more earth as it warms. Coffee becomes stronger in the finish esp in the aftertaste. Syrupy in mouth feel. Wonderful, complex, interesting.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

Keg at Friends of Ham, Leeds. (Really need to get round to reviewing that place soon). Pours hazy amber with a big off-white head. Looks weiss-y actually, but the smell takes all that perception away. Big, green, unroasted coffee bean aromas. HUGE. Amazing. Like I imagine walking through a coffee plantation smells like, hands wide, crushing as you go. Taste has a good whack of bitterness in the back. An enjoyable shared half, more might be excessive.

Keg at Friends of Ham, Leeds, Saturday 15th February 2014. Pours hazy puddle brown with slim off-white head. Soft in mouth, coffee shows but sweet malts and zappy hops all bring their own elements to the party, finish is dry and robustly citrussy. Some sweet grapefruit and pithy lemon. Really nice.
