From bottle. Brown pour with tan bubbly head. Aroma is piney and sweet with molasses. Taste is piney with a touch of citrus with almost a nutty finish. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Definitely a stone inspired brew. Damn good brown ale.

Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby with huge off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus, pine, licorice, some caramel. Spicy flavor with good bitterness and a nice malty backbone. Above average mouthfeel; nice piney finish. Quite good.

Served from a 12 oz bottle from Barron’s. The appearance is a deep murky brown with a good sizes light brown head. Super hoppy nose. Lemons, tangerine, chocolate malts, and a bit of a spiciness. Great flavors. Hopped up brown sugar with chocolate undertones. The hops are floral with some resins and spice additions. A bit perfumery at times too. The hop profile really takes over the brew and pulls it away from the brown ale base but tasty all the way.

Bottle. Pours with a very much hazed (outright muddy compared to most Stone beers...but that is not a complaint), medium brown hued body with a tight and some what large, off-white to tan head. Respectable lace and good retention. Aromas are of hoppy, pine, citrus, mid tropical fruit, light dank weed notes. Some dark fruit esters, strong bready malt, molasses, nutty, tobacco, earthy, mild chocolatey roast. A touch grassy. Flavors are quite bitter, grassy, earthy, nearly a touch astringent at times. Fruit forward from both hops and possibly a bit yeast. Cannot tell if this is Stone’s normal 007 (yeast) or not. Some pineapple, pine, and molasses. Very dry with a nutty roast. A clean and crisp finish. Lasting and strong bitterness that is a touch much. Nice malt complexity, grainy, bready, toasted, lightly rich without being too sweet. Overall good, and a bit old school and brash, but still a fun drink. Medium bubbles, lighter body, lasting bitter, pretty well hidden alcohol. Good.

Bottle, from Windmill Farms. Brown IPA? Hoppy Brown? Whatever, it’s pretty good. Nice to see one of these collaborations without spruce, milk thistle, oregano or basil.

Cool to grab a bottle of this so fresh on a quick trip to San Diego. Aroma is citrus and piney hops, a bit of earthiness, and some burnt malt. Pours a cloudy brown with a hint of red with a pillowy khaki head. Flavor is more roasty than I was expecting. There is an earthy hop character here that is different than most Stone brews, probably from the Brewer’s Gold hop. Nice caramel roasty flavors an followed by a pretty intense hop bitterness that is heavy on the pine. I think the use of sugars have kept the body a bit thinner than I was expecting as well. Pretty decent.

Good, solid beer from 3 great breweries. I don’t get much molasses out of here, which is a little disappointing. All around it’s a solid IPA-style beer.

Pours a murky brown with a frothy off-white head. Nose is hops and maple. Very hoppy, some resin and some sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty thin. Decent brew, pretty aggressive.
