Jim Moorehouse, Nate Albrecht and Brad Zeller, three pals planning to open a Chicago brewpub under the moniker of Aleman, won first place at last year's Iron Brew homebrewing competition in the Windy City (judged by none other than Greg Koch, Jason Ebel of Two Brothers Brewing, and celebrated Chicago brewer, designer and author Randy Mosher). Their style-bending IPA artfully married the assertive tropical bite of Citra hops with amazing coffee flavor and aromatics to create something truly unique and exceptional. Serendipitously, Two Brothers recently kicked off a new adventure roasting their own coffee beans, and provided just-in-time freshly roasted java for the brew. The result is an innovative IPA that's well balanced and intensely flavored thanks to the felicitous blend of hops and fresh roasted coffee.

    Bottle share from Ratchet. Golden amber color pour, tight white head, nice lacing. Unique acidic coffee and Citra hops aroma and flavor, light on the coffee at first, then more in the forefront as it warms, pairing with the Citra to exhibit a very nice bitter linger and inviting flavor profile all in a unique brew.

    I should just stop ever doubting Stone ever ever again. Those that think they've slipped have obviously not had the privelage of trying their limited releases, collabs and one offs. Every time another brewer seems to gain ground, Stone releases yet ANOTHER awesome beer. This is one. I've had Mikkeller coffee IPA and it was enjoyable, but not like this. Classed as an IPA despite it's 8.7%, this drinks quite light and smooth for the abv. The aroma is dominated by coffee (think Surly Coffee Bender type coffee) with the lower IBU IPA rounding the aroma and flavor out with a subtle but refreshing blast of citrus. Coffee lovers should rejoice in this beer. It stood toe to toe with some big boys (Breakfast stout and Victory at Sea) as we transitioned from IPAs to darker coffee brews). Get it while it's fresh if you can...
