Rogue, the beer brewer out of Southern Oregon has just teamed up with indie-coffee giant Stumptown to release something pretty unique – a coffee IPA. Coffee is no stranger to beer, especially when it comes to porters or stouts, but this is not something you see every day.
What recommends this IPA isn’t so much any set of subtle flavors as it is a surprisingly seamless transition from one very distinct and strong flavor to another. With an ABV of 7.5 percent, and an IBU of 82, the tasting notes on this bottle includes a strong coffee flavor with a hop punch. Rogue is retailing these in 22oz bottles and on draft, and recommends pairing them with either doughnuts or pork. We’re already sold, and if this sounds good to you – you can pick up a bottle for just $10. [Purchase]
