Brown with an unmistakable rubescent underpinning. Extremely dense, 2" thick, creamy browned head. For a brown ale, this is excessively hoppy. Chinook nose dominates, with malt barely perceptible. Again the body is dominated by a PNW hop, perhaps Chinook. Juicy pine and pineapple flavors. It may look like a brown ale, but this is an IPA in spirit.
