Dayman Coffee IPA is a collaboration between between Stone, Aleman, and Two Brothers Breweries, and it's an unusual beer. Deep, clear amber in color with a rich aroma that imparts some coffee and hops. The flavor is something really unusual. Entirely unique. There is a strong IPA character, citrus hops over top of the malt. The coffee qualities are strongest in the finish. The exhale here is very much like the exhale after a good cup of coffee. The aftertaste and the mouthfeel are very much like what I enjoy about coffee. Whereas coffee and espresso stouts often have a rich coffee flavor, this thing has more of a coffee feel. I don't know that it's something I'd want often, but I enjoyed this bottle.
