2.88/5  rDev -23.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: A very cloudy, medium copper. An average pour produces three fingers of thick, rocky foam. the head is long lasting and sticky.

S: A moderate citrus hops that is kind of flat quickly followed by a medicinal note that blends with a grassy dry hopped aroma. A bit of tropical fruit comes though in the hops aroma after it warms. There isn't much malt aroma what little is there smells of clean sweetness. There is light fruitiness and moderately-light alcohol aroma.

T: The moderately-strong tropical fruit hops flavor and strong hops bitterness are front and center on this beer although they are muted showing signs of age. The malt provides enough malt to support the hops and brings a light caramel flavor. There is a little bit of an herbaceous note and a light alcohol sweetness. The balance is fairly bitter and the aftertaste is of citrus hops and lingering bitterness. A slight bit of phenols come through in the flavor as well a slight vinegar flavor.

M: medium bodied with a moderately-strong carbonation. There is a light hops rerived astringency.

O: Well even after the flaws that could be from an infected bottle I might try and find a fresh bottle of this in the future because the underling beer is still pretty good.

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.
