COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. pours an amber gold with a distinctively rich flavor, significant hop aroma and soft, white and creamy head. We blend two-row pale, two-row brewer’s and Carapils malts with the finest quality, Chinook, Cascade, and Mt. Hood hops to brew our complex and very tasty version of India Pale Ale.
Malts: Domestic Two Row Pale, Brewer’s & Carapils
Hops: Chinook, Cascade, & Mt. Hood

Note: At some point the recipe was changed to include Mount Hood hops instead of Fuggles but it is not known when that change took place.

Bottle. Rusty orange and light-resistant, with a nice standing head of firm pillowtop. Well balanced all the way, with a subtle yet rustic aroma of woodsy hops. This is a meaty drink, with a full body. I like the equilibrium here, with a robust malty beer as its base, and a nice earthy hop finish. (#5816, 10/13/2014)

ellolovey (462) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Deep hazy light amber color with thick stick white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee. Well balanced. Nice hop bitterness followed by a sweet malt backbone. Nothing special. Just a solid IPA.

Mep3222 (514) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Dank hop aroma with a malty backbone. Never really knew what dank smelled like, but this smells dank. Not bad, just dank. Flavor is malt, but almost a syrupy malty. Not great. Hops provide some balance and a slight bitter finish, but this is a malt dominated, not quite balanced ipa. Ok but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours copper with long lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy hops caramel malt, ripe fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and bitter. One of many OK IPAs.

Bottle. Pours golden muddy amber with an off white head. Flowery hoppy with crystal and toffee malty notes. Not bad.

Voodoo (320) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Very odd aroma.....there may be a problem. I’ve had this in their brewpub and this bottle is not that beer. Cheesy aroma, almost no maltiness and a metallic taste. They may have a problem in bottling, or this was a very old bottle.....but I see no dating anywhere.........EDIT----after a visit to the brewpub I obtained another 6 pack of Browns IPA.....what a difference! It now deserves a rerate!.....pours a clear golden with a light head which laces the glass well....slight hopping hits with a defined malt taste, crisp and clean on the light edge of IPAs but an easily drinkable brew...... much better the second time around

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2012
Clear deep gold with a sticky white head. Citrus hop aroma, caramel. The flavor is slightly bitter, well balanced by the malts. I’d like to see a little more of both malt and hops and perhaps add some body to this to so that it can run in faster company.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap at brewery - clear amberish orange. Slight hops aroma. I’d expect more from an IPA. Smooth drinking. Nice malt flavor and balance. Tastes more like a pale to me. Slightly metallic.
