2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown IPA… its amber and it has a minimal off-white head so I guess you could call this a brown IPA, but why? At this point there are 2 types of brown ales: traditional and experimental. The first can fall into a good or boring category the experimental can be gross or good. This is experimental, or just creative labeling, and boring, or depending on semantics a hoppy brown. It is not a bad beer just lacking the exuberance the label foretold.

Bottle pours translucent dark ruby brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roast with hoppy citrus. Solid bitterness to back the roast malt flavours. Finish stays bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 2010. Sampled at the brewery. Redbrown to copper color with a white head. Very hoppy for a brown ale, which is a plus in my book. Goes well with the caramel, malt and nutty aromas.
