3.79/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a chesnut brown with a tinge of auburn,a half finger light tannish colored head atop.Aromas are a little muted with some earthiness,caramel,and light citric hops mainly.A well rounded palate with malty caramel and nuttiness to go along with earthy and citrusy hops in the finish.Not bad,I like the flavor profile but the aromas are pretty light,on par with other "brown" IPA styles I have had.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Had been flirting with buying this because I like Browns, and finally found it at an irresistable price ($5.50). I had seen it previously for up to $10.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip.

a: Almost black with clear ruby throughout when seen through light. Finger thick tan yead receded to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Citrus.

t: Caramel malt forward with strength, followed by a moderate hop bite. Bitterness lingers at the sides of the tongue. Sweet to dry finish. Later some dark fruit notes

m; Medium with good body, lots of carbonation tingle.

o; Not a favorite version of IPA for many Americans, but this is a wonderful one for those of us who like English styles like Brown Ale jazzed up a bit. Somewhat similar to Shipyard's XXXX (D)IPA, also a favorite, although darker in color and with more fruit notes.

a. Brown in color with a 3 finger cream colored head.

s. Hoppy and Malty on the nose.

t. Although I like this beer, it seemed that the balance was off. There was not enough hoppiness to call it a true IPA, but this was more hoppy than most browns. Malt on the front and brown

m. Mouthfeel was good, nothing special.

o. A very good beer that should have bent more hoppy. I would drink this beer again.
