What the brewers say

“Collaboration with Coava Coffee Roasters. Single hop, single bean featuring Rakau hops and Papua New Guinea Nichol Colbran Coffee.”

What our panel thought

“Fresh-brewed medium-roast coffee, light chocolate, a touch of vanilla on the nose. Effervescent quality across the tongue. Chocolate-forward expression of coffee, moderate bitterness linger into the finish. Hop flavors of chocolate-covered strawberries, cut damp grass, hazelnut. An intoxicating experience.”

What our editors thought

“Light coffee note in the nose, present but not cliché, with a toasty roast structure. Sip is a thoughtful blend of juicy hops and light toasty, nutty coffee, like a solid blonde roast. Intriguing.”
