Wow, quite different from other brown ales I've had and very enjoyable. Single hopping with Citra really helps to set this beer apart. Pours a deep brown with a large tan head. Aroma is malt forward, sweet chocolate and some citrus fruit, which prepped me for big things on the palate. Toasty, nutty and chocolate tastes are there, typical things I expect from this style, but enhanced with the citrus fruit characteristics of those hops, has a bit of a zest or tang and some slight bitterness is noticeable. Overall I really enjoyed it. Maintains everything one wants from a good brown but that fruit character helps to make it unique among it's peers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

33 cl bottle (bb 9 2015) into a tulip glass.
Look - clear amber brown with a tiny tan head and little lacing.
Smell - roasted malts, dried prunes and raisins.
Taste - begins with roasted malts, brown sugar and notes of nuts, chocolate and coffee in the middle, ending dry with a slight hop bitterness. Flavorful but not heavy. Good balanced taste. Pleasant long lasting smooth roasted malts in the dry aftertaste Was a bit too cold at first coming out of the fridge, became a lot more flavorful after warming up in the glass.
Mouthfeel - Soft, a bit creamy mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation.
Overall a pleasant sipping beer for an autumn evening. Soft and flavorful. Nothing surprising, just a clean pleasant taste.
