12oz bottle from Binnyís Lakeview. Pours an amber-brown color with a big, off white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine and citrus, orange maybe. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty and hoppy, interesting combination, not roasty like a black IPA, more orange citrus flavor, with a light, bitter finish. Interesting.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a murky mahogany brown color with about an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and thereís a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice but weak, the brew smells like citrusy hops (grapefruit, orange peel), caramel and toasted malt, molasses, piney hops and brown sugar. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with a slight nutty flavor also noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy and is well carbonated (maybe has a bit too much carbonation). Yep, itís a hoppy brown ale. Unfortunately, itís not a great one. I think itís a decent brew, but it just seems that thereís something missing that could have made this beer better. Oh well, itís still worth trying.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Pours ruby brown, beige head. Aroma of hops, toffee. Taste is mostly malty, some roast, some hop, but itís mild. Pretty good, not as flavorful as I was expecting.

12 oz bottle. Clear dark brown pour, light tan head. Sweet malts, nutty, bitter citrusy hops, notes of chocolate, and a bit herbal. Like a strong brown, nother special, but still a nice beverage.

Crushed at Lyons Fork. Saw the collaboration and decided I must try this.12 oz bottle pours a murky dark brown with a light bubbly head. Fruity, lightly hoppy aroma, with a medicinal hint. Dark fruits, molasses, a bit of a hop bite.

Not much going on with the aroma. Faint hop smell. Tast is a sweel brown ale, more hops than typical for the style. A bit of smoke and maple syrup. My forst thought was maple syrup of beer. Overall a decent beer.

Scopey (12537) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2012
Tap at Stone Bistro. It pours cloudy brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is grass, pine, lime pith, hay, caramel and Turkish Delight. The taste is wood, grass, leather, hay, roasted malt, caramel, coffee beans and citrus pith, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent, if a bit unexciting.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2012
A huge aroma of citrusy hops and esters (ethyl acetate-nail polish remover) erupt from a pillow white head atop a clear mahogany body. Medium body of roasted malt and dextrins quickly morphs into pleasantly bitter grapefruity hops. Fantastic cold but the esters and fusels are really taking over as this beer warms up. Hmmm...

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
bottle pours a deep, rich brown with finger of sticky, lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet, with sweet aspects of both malts and hops coming through, pine sap, honey, brown sugar, molasses, nectar, and a touch of bitter citrus. Flavor has bitter citrus notes but succumbs to a sweet finish - notes of clover honey and maple syrup lingering. Pretty unique brew and quite tasty, full bodied.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Pour from a bottle gave a light brown murky color. A little bit of sweet malt and brown sugar on the nose. Medium body beer. Flavor of toasted sweet malt that is quickly over powered by the bitter hops. The one dimensional hop flavor lasts to the finish in a dry fashion. Not much flavor retention. Pretty routine.
