3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This one is not good. Think of what it would taste like to pour a homeless mans change cup in your mouth. Thats the best description of the taste I can come up with. Dirty metallic, spoiled meat, caramel, grassy hops. Two sips and a drain pour.
