3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at crunchy's. This is the first "brown" IPA I've had. It does a nice job blending in some malts without making it too portery like most black IPAs do. Well blended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours a really funky brownish dirty dishwater type color. The aroma is also pretty unique as well. Get the hops for sure, but is also blended with some funk. The taste is crazy good. One of the best brown ales I've had i. A long time. Job well done.

Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid balanced toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Crunchy’s. I am not a brown ale fan, so I sampled the draft my wife ordered. Toasty, chocolate, creamy with a nice, little hop kick. Makes me ask myself why I don’t try more brown ales. Next time at Crunchy’s I will order a pint of my own.
