Great beer. Drank this one from the bottle and i was not disappointed it really does live up to the hype. VERY tropical. A lot of pineapple going on with some mellowed out tropical skittles. Very sweet but what would you expect with a name like brown shugga. It has pretty good bitterness going on in the back too.

Poured Brown Shugga' into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a clear amber with a off white head that goes on forever.

S - Sweet grapefruit, pine, citrus. Typical IPA goodness.

T - Bitterness, juicy hops, citrus, grapefruit and pine. Mid palate getting some lightly toasted malt with some sweetness from the brown sugar. Finally, on the aftertaste getting more grapefruit, citrus and sweetness.

M - Smooth medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

O - Nice beer with many great flavors for this time of year. Recommended Cheers!
