Saw this one and had to grab a sixer. I know upslope is a fine brewery, so taking a chance on a sixer wasn't even a concern as I knew it would be good.
And it was. This brown ale embodies the style perfectly. Coffee, chocolate, and caramel malts all in nice proportions, without being overwhelming or transforming this beer into a stout. The perfect mix between flavor and fullness, combined with ease of drinking and refreshingness.
Upslope is certainly going places, and this brew is just one more step from their currently fine standing towards the halls of beerdom.

A very dark brown brew with some reddish highlights, the off white foam starts off big but shrinks quickly leaving some lacing behind.
The smell is all Brown Ale like. ;^) Big hoppy but with more than hints of roasted malt and coffee. I think the hop and roasted malt have a nice "marriage" going on and they are celebrating the event with the coffee.
The taste just supports what I said about the smell. Nice bitter from the hops and roasted malt with a wee bit of sweetness that doesn't quite balance things out, but this is an American Brown Ale, so all is right with the world. Did I forget to mention coffee's involvement? I think it brings things together and gives this Brown Ale and extra oomph. Wow. Oomph is a word without the red squiggly lines but hoppy isn't?
Medium is what I'd use to describe the body and carbonation.
This is an excellent Brown Ale and I will enjoy drinking the other cans I have.
