look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into DFH footed pint glass; ruddy chestnut brown with a massive fluffy tan head that sticks around for a long time, and leaves great piebald lacing as it descends into a thick puck of foam topping.
Smells of crisp bitter piney and herbal hops, some citrus rind, and dry bread malt.
Taste follows nose very well; crisp pine and citrus rind hops mix very well with dry brown malt, bit of nuttiness.
Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied and crisp, semi-dry finish with lots of lingering bitterness.
Overall, this is definitely a surprise. I usually avoid brown ales because I find them boring and generally lacking in flavor, but this one is different. Lots of hop flavor that works very well with the malt.

My bottle was labeled as an Amber Ale, not a brown, or brown IPA. Poured into a standard pint glass. It's dark reddish amber in color with about a finger of tight, nearly white head. Lots of floral and citrus hops on the nose with just a bit of dank. Flavor is also floral, citrus, dank and slightly bitter with gorgeous malt undertones. Smooth and full mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. I really liked this beer right down to the last drop. It was pricey at $3.69 for a single bottle, but I'd definitely buy it again.

On tap at Specialty Beer Cellar. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Deep brown. Murky. Medium off white head. Great lacing. Well retained.

Smell - Very piney and grassy. Lots of deep caramel. Almost chocolatey.

Taste - Aggressive grassy hops. Intense caramel body. Grassy hops come back aggrwssively. Extremely bitter.

Mouthfeel - Heavy body. Excessively bitter. Difficult to drink.

Overall - Tastes ok, but this pint will take me forever.

Serving type: on-tap

330ml brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars. Shared with Sam and Chris on a brewday.

Pours a lovely reddish amber colour, with a very fine bead to it. Head is an extremely fine gauze of off-white, pocked in places that leaves fine, intricate streaky lacing. Body has a bit of heft to it as well. Looks great.

Nose is awesome. Big, powerful, but extremely fresh US hops that give wonderfully clinging resin and citrus characters, but pinned down by a robust almost meaty malt character that adds weight and gravitas. The confluence is something semi-savoury, but still extremely bright fresh and delicious—it's almost the perfect aroma for a hop-forward amber ale.

Taste is lovely and light for the most part, with a clean, strident hop bitterness right through the centre. The malt is certainly lacking a little, leaving the beer craving a touch of sweetness, but it does provide a robust grain-forward character that balances the hops nicely. Feel has a fichness to it, but it still manages to stay fairly light. Nice stuff.

Overall, this is an absolutely cracking brew, and one of the best beers I've had from Evil Twin. It's also possibly one of the best American Amber Ales I've had. And I've had some awesome beers from both categories.
