look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought at Beer Street in Williamsburg, BK.

A. Looks like brown/caramel mud. Thick in its opaqueness with sediment. Nice foamy tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

S. Fantastic malty dark fruit scent, with a hint of charcoal in the back.

T. Very flavorful. It has a bit of caramel and a bit of bitterness. Some fruitiness like a watermelon. Malty and thick, with mild carbonation. Has a coffee taste at the end.

M. The aftertaste is a bit off, a bit sour. But not enough to detract from the brew as a whole.

O. This is one of those interesting beers that changes as it rolls over the palate. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

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.

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.
