The "DayMan" coffee IPA collaboration between Aleman, Two Brothers and Stone was released yesterday. This collaborative brew is definitely a once in a lifetime beer, so pick up a bomber while you can. This 8.7% abv, 42 IBU coffee IPA is packed with cascade and citra hops on top of Two Brothers coffee.
Check out the tasting notes from Stone's brewmaster, Mitch Steele, below.
Appearance: Clear amber with a tan head.
Aroma: It’s difficult to discern which aroma hits first—the wonderful, citrusy tropical fruitiness of the Citra hops or the deep-roasted elegance of the coffee roasted especially for this brew.
Taste: The taste of this beer follows right along with the aromatics. Roasted coffee and citrusy hops play well together as the beer flows across the palate along with hints of toasted malt and a wonderful lingering bitterness.
Palate: Dry with a nice lingering bitterness. The coffee flavors hang on pleasantly after the hop bitterness recedes.
Overall: The Aleman guys developed a wonderful IPA recipe. The addition of coffee brings wonderful layers of totally unexpected roast components that make this beer truly unique. I've never had anything like it and I look forward to enjoying it. It’s been a pleasure to put this brew together with Aleman and Two Brothers.
