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.

Surprisingly good

This brew pours like a typical good IPA. Nice amber color, clear, 1.5 finger head with a little lacing. Initial smell and taste is what you would expect, a nice floral IPA, but with coffee. At first it was a put-off but it grew on me but the third or fourth sip. Writing this at the end of my 22oz and I wish I had a few more bottles. Over all a beer that i wouldn't expect to be good, but now I'm going to be looking for something similar because this is a one off brew.

I'd but this again, if I could.

This hoppy IPA has a rich coffee flavor with citrus and pine notes. The medium body features a copper color with a thin creamy head.

Drayman

It had a lingering malty quality. It needed to warm up a bit to get the full flavor and aromas.

Holy beer

There's not a lot of these off beers that I've liked...I've had some with chilli, smoke, fruit and......coffee....they've all been good to bad, but this brew was amazing....at first I wasn't sure if I liked it cause it was something I wasn't expecting....then all of a sudden, it's in my top 10 beers of all time....It's an amber colored ipa that is everything ipa...it's a hoppy and well, coffee aroma, and to the taste as well....find this, and drink this
