Coffenade - Omnipollo + Evil Twin (Sweden/Denmark)
This IPA is a collaboration brew between Omnipollo and Evil Twin. It’s brewed with additions of lemon and coffee. Another original and unusual combination of flavors for an IPA (what else to expect from Omnipollo and Evil Twin). Coffenade pours yellow, hazy, looks of orange juice and orange lemonade, head retention is non existing, almost no carbonation.
In the nose lots of citrus, mainly oranges and a bit of lemon. In the background a little note of coffee.
In the mouth flavors of citrus, oranges, lime, lemon and grapefruit. There’s a light fruity-sour edge to this, probably from the lemons. It’s pleasant and fun to break with the mainly sweet fruit flavors. After these fruity flavors comes coffee and a coffee-like bitterness. Tastes like green coffee or less roasted coffee. The beer started with a fruit explosion, when they fade there’s only coffee and a bit of orange in the aftertaste. The lack of carbonation remind me of flat lemonade. Mouthfeel is medium.
Taste is light to medium sweet, medium bitter, light sour, aftertaste is medium, there’s a lingering bitterness think orange peel and coffee.
I could have this beer in the morning, a good start of the day, fruit and coffee!
