Thanks to a buddy for picking this up. Oh baby does this beer smell like a floral/citrus hop bomb. And its a brown ale too! Pours a dark brown with good head. Tastes of citrus hops with a slight floral taste in there too and very light roast or chocolate notes in there. A very refreshing beer and ever sip was delicious. This brewery totally kicks ass.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery. Aptly named, as it is a hoppy beer(Centennial and Chinook) well integrated with chocolate malts. This contrasts to the usual brown available in Canada, which is a licorice dominated British style. Nicely done and good drinkability. Dark brown coloured, lacey. Be patient and drink this closer to room temperature to get the full flavour.

On tap at the brewery, into a pint glass.

Dark brown, with mahogany highlights. Tan head, good lacing and light retention. Nose of chocolate, light roast and nutty character and perhaps even a touch of coffee. Citrus-y American hopping in the back. Taste has chocolate, roast, lightly nutty and earthy. Bitter citrus and piney hops come a bit later and carry on into the finish. Medium body, lighter medium feel. A nice, aptly named brown ale. Hops could be toned down just a tad perhaps, and the body perhaps a tad fuller.

Beer is dark brown in colour, with a moderately-sized tan head. Good retention and lacing.

Smell is quite malty, with nutty scents and vanilla. Also a notable hop presence, some citrus.

Taste is like the nose, but hops are stronger. Nutty and malty flavours, with a bit of bitter coffee. Some citrus fruit, and the hops lend a notable bitterness.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Quite smooth.

Overall, a pretty nice beer. Certainly in the brown ale camp, but with a stronger hop focus than normal.
