Solid IPA offering. Not overly bitter. Taste hops but it doesn't bite back. Smells of nuts and pine. However, the hops are a little flat or lazy. You get an initial whiff and taste but it fades right off the bat. Very drinkable and Smooth. Not a lot of bite back. Had a draft. Could drink several. Hides the ABV well. Solid but a little disappointing as it was previously hyped to me.

Extra in a trade with themeadhatter. Thanks man!

Pours a copper orange, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like toasted malts, sweet grain, and piney hops.

The taste is similar. I don't know how fresh this is, but the hops don't shine as brightly as I would've thought. Some pine and resin, lots of toasted malt flavor, a little bit of caramel, with some slight citrus. Don't really taste the agave nectar, but it is a bit sweet, so that might be part of it.

Medium bodied, crisp, but moderately creamy mouthfeel near the end. Low carbonation.

Not too bad, but doesn't exactly seem like a brown ale, almost like a hoppy brown.
