I've been excited to try a beer in this style for a while (India Brown Ale) and this one did not disappoint.
Looks like a Brown Ale, almost reddish amber in color with a two-finger tan head. A little cloudy.
Smells very nutty, malty.
Taste is a great hybrid of the two styles. It has the caramel malt of a brown ale and the hop bitterness of an IPA. So good. It's actually quite bitter, so much so that it surprised me.
Great medium-heavy body. Almost perfect. nice carbonation and a nice dry finish.
I downgraded this a little in the drinkability department just because it is so bitter I don't think I could really drink too many of these before I fried my palate.
Other than that, wow. One of my new favorites.
