COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In typical 10 Barrel style, we took a traditional American Brown, threw it through the ringer, and put our own unique twist on it. We took a standard brown malt bill and augmented with Aromatic, Marris Otter, Cara-Crystal wheat, flaked barley, chocolate, and special roasted malt. We then overloaded it with Cascade, Centennial, Northern Brewer, Simcoe, and Chinook hops, leading to a complex battle of pine and citrus flavor and aromatics.

Flavors of carmel, earthiness, grapefruit, lemon zest and light cocoa with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering carmel finish.

Hop damn! There is a huge hop character to this for a "brown ale". Delicious though...poured cloudy, brown with a khaki head. Nice retention. Nose had citrus and pine. Same citrus and pine hop flavors going on with a nice toasted and nutty malt sweetness for balance. Lots of hop flavor, low on bitterness. Finished with a clean hop character.

10 oz @ Horse Brass. Pours clear brown/dark amber, white head w/ zesty lacing. Aroma is hoppy, sweet. Flavor is fruity hops, nicely creamy. Malty finish and bitter. Certainly not a brown ale. A hoppy brown monstrosity of complexity and intruige-- funky!

mcberko (5358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is quite hop-heavy, some toasted nuts and some roast. Flavour is a bit fruity at first, then shifts to citrus hops that then feature quite prominently, backed by some pleasant toasted malts. Very hop-heavy for a brown ale - tastes more like a very hoppy, toasted amber. Very solid.

Incredibly smooth and rich malt body. Rich brown in color with a nice frothy foam head. Velvety wheat and crystal character with a roasted quality and some bready sweetness. High impact hop presence that came out of left field but was sewn in perfectly with hearty pine and resin. A citrus bite and a sweet caramel finish. Well done.

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Hazy medium brown with mediocre tan head. Bitter hops, those of earth and tree, congregate in the aroma. Flavor is a slightly harsh dollop of bitterness, a bit out of balance with the hop flavor and especially the malt. A bit of very light, clean caramel is distinguishable in there. Not great, wouldn’t get again.

RumRunner101 (671) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Aromas of caramel, biscuit, sprucey hops. Medium bodied with a light toffee and caramel flavour and then the crushing flavours of spruce and grapefruit from the hops. Nicely bitter, but not overly. Finishes bitter. I quite enjoyed this one.

Shared at the Royale gathering last night, thanks Blake! It poured a nice, nearly opaque dark brown color with moderate beige foam. Fairly typical brown ale aromas and flavors underneath vastly stronger-than-usual hops bill. Copious amounts ofcharacteristically American hops: grapefruity, pine resiny, woodsy. It struck me as a big brown IPA akin to Wilco Tango Foxtrot or Avery Ellies Brown. Good stuff.
