Zero Issue Brewing Invasion Coffee IPA (Issue #21) – American IPA at 5.9% ABV

Zero Issue Brewing Invasion Coffee IPA (Issue #21) – American IPA at 5.9% ABV (C$4.85 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 25-Mar-2020, reviewed 2-Apr-2020)

Appearance: muddy opaque deep gold with two fat fingers of dense creamy pale ivory head, excellent retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: coffee, resiny pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly creamy body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter lightly spicy finish. (4/5)

Well… I don’t hate it. And for a coffee IPA, that’s not a bad accomplishment. Mind you, when I say it smells like coffee, it’s really a bit more like soggy grounds in the trash, than a nice freshly-brewed cup. But all in all, it’s reasonably well balanced and drinkable. (14/20)
