If you’re tired of coffee beers that are more coffee than beer, you may fall in love with Sweet Baby Java. It’s a satisfying beer with well-balanced hop bitterness and malty character, so it could stand on its own even without the infusion of coffee and the addition of peanuts. The recipe involves cold-steeping whole espresso beans, but many would argue that the malts and hops are what make it noteworthy. Expect an explosion of Golding and Fuggle hops along with highlights of six quality malts, including roasted barley and chocolate. It all comes together to create a Porter worthy of your most delectable desserts or your most rewarding morning wake-up call.

The DuClaw Brewing Company found a way to incorporate Mosaic, Simcoe, Columbus, Apollo, Centennial and Citra hops into one beer while keeping those quality hops on the gentle side of bitter. It all kicks off with Wheat and Pale malts, but the Brewers would never deprive you of the juiciness that comes from those five quality hops. They just hop it up at the end of the brewing process to tame the flavorful beast. Expect a strong tropical aroma with hints of pine, herbs, and citrus. That is enough to signal relaxation to your brain, but the hammer is dropped by a complex flavor that offers layers of tropical fruit, citric acid, and strong herbs.
