Notes/Commercial Description:
Forget about the car companies, this is the original hybrid. A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale and an American Brown, Indian Brown Ale is well-hopped and malty at the same time (It's magical!).

The beer has characteristics of each style that inspired it: the color of an American Brown, the caramel notes of a Scotch Ale, and the hopping regiment of an India Pale Ale. We dry-hop the Indian Brown Ale in a similar fashion to our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.

The first thing I smell is malty goodness with hints of brown sugar in this brownish beer. The head last for a few seconds. The first taste that hits my mouth is a smooth sweet malt followed by mild hop and slight aftertaste of brown sugar. Very smooth and flavorful for a brown ale as the bitterness balances the malt perfectly. I've found my new go-to brown ale.
