Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-07-2001

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.

Heaven in a glass. Creme Brule meets hops.

Pours dark, but somewhat clear with a small creamy head. Mild brown sugar smell with a malt background. Burnt coffee taste with brown sugar background. Nice mouthfeel, mild carbonation with a nice finish. Very interesting blend of three beers!
