Dayman Coffee IPA brewed by Stone, Two Brothers Brewing and Aleman
Stone Imperial Russian
Stout brewed by Stone Brewing - Escondido, California
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.
Appearance - Dark amber, almost red with a one finger white head.
Very dark looking for an IPA, but wasn't really sure what to expect
with this type.
Aroma - Lots of coffee right up front, with a little more coffee
catching up the rear. A little bit of citrus in there. Very unique
Taste - Bitter coffee up front followed by hops and citrus. The
coffee bitterness really compliments the overall bitterness of the
Mouthfeel - Medium body with decent carbonation. Leaves a pretty
bitter after taste which isn't a problem for a hop head.
Overall - Although I'm not a big coffee drinker, this is pretty
delicious. Im' sure a coffee drinker is going to go head over heels
for this brew.
