Served in a Olde Hickory Christmas Ale pint glass at Olde Hickory Station.

It has a muddy brown color. It's really murky and the appearance of the beer doesn't look inviting. However, once you smell it, it smells like Foothills Hoppyum. Citrus, pine, and some roast. The taste is similar to Hoppyum but with the roasty malt. Although it doesn't taste like DFH Indian Brown Ale, it reminds me of this. Brown ale hopped up. Good carbonation, smooth.

I really enjoy this beer. I wish they'd bottle it or have it more widely available on draft. I'd recommend to check it out.

Poured ontap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a light brown coloring, crystal clear, with a foamy, fluffy, off white head. Nose of resinous and grassy hops forward, with a semisweet backbone of roasted nut and chocolate. Flavors are resinous and citrus forward, on a sweet and rich nutty and chocolate backbone. Grapefruit, tangerine, grass, pine pitch, and a subtle sweetness to balance. Smooth, light bodied, with a tangy and cotrus ladened, resinous hops profile. The finish is slick and smooth, with a bitter hops linger.

Had on-tap at Bier Garden Asheville. Served in a Highland pint glass.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Very nice hop aroma that's a bit piney as well as slightly citrusy.

T- Flavor is a bit more on the earthy side with a solid bitterness and a good amount of toastiness from the malt. Very easy to drink especially once the palate acclimates to the hops. Whoa! 7.8%?! You can't tell at all. More points earned for that. Slightly sweet.

M- Slightly oily with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Such a smooth brew for the ABV. If you see this, give it a shot if you're a fan of toasty DIPAs.

Poured into a standard pint glass a medium russet brown color with a thinner off white head atop.A big blast citrusy and piney hops really jump out at ya in the nose,maybe the hoppiest aromas of any brown I have come across,faint coddee aromas are there as well.Piney hops hit upfront on the palate along with mild roast and brown sugar with more pine in the lingering finish.This is a hopped up brown ale no doubt,from what I was told this is taking the place of the India Brown Ale due to a naming dispute,a totally different beer.
