Combining the best of two great beer styles, Hoppy Medium is an aggressive American Brown Ale. A roasted malty backbone with a hint of sweetness is complimented by a citrusy hop finish. It’s an IPA. It’s a brown ale. It’s a Hoppy Medium.

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.

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.
