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.

Nose is roasty with chocolate, toffee, nutty notes and some coffee. Taste is rich dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, raisins, slight hop bitterness and a little bit of alcohol hidden way in the back. Flavors of caramel and coffee come up on the back end and stick around. I have had this brew a million times and its still one of my favorites. No matter how much my tastes change this one stays delicious.
