The perfect winter IPA, we combine the rich backbone and color of a brown ale with robust American Hops. Itís well-balanced between sweet, roasty malts and piney, herbal hops, making this a dark beer for hop lovers.

Hazy amberish brown with a foamy light tan head, with loads of sticky lace. Nose is very full and large with whole cone semi-bitter leafy hops, lots of lupulin and resin, with a sweet toast malt undertone. Smells a bit caustic. Taste is large and toasty with some light notes of cocoa and dark toast malts, but there is an overriding flavor of resinous leafy hops throughout, and more strongly so on the finish. Not my kinda brown at all.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours with a huge beige head that slowly fades with a big mesa in the middle. Very cool lacing. A dark brown beer. The aroma was cocoa with some grass. Despite all of the foam it feels flat. There is also cocoa in the flavor that dominates. Airish hops that are floral and perhaps noble. Some grass and earth. Also bitterness that is quite dry. Earth grows as the beer warms and fruity hops are noted. This is not a style I usually like and I am not sure why. This had some complexity along with big sweetness.

Pours a dark brown with a two finger tab head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted sweet malts, earthy pine hops, caramel, some nuttyness and some molasses. Taste is pine, citrus, toasted sweet malts, burnt caramel, molasses, grass, nuts, and some earthy hops. Has a medium body wih a creamy mouthfeel and a slighty dry, semi bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a hoppy and tasty brown ale that almost tastes like a black IPA.

Growler from Joe Canalís in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Pours a translucent dark brown color with a small creamy beige head. Nice clinging lace. Big roasted malt nose has hints of coffee and burnt caramel. Rich chocolate malt flavor is balanced by an aggressive spicy hoppiness. Chewy mouthfeel and full bodied. Epic website says this is a Black IPA. Itís a very nice brew.

(Bottle) Dark brown body, big light brown head that forms peaks as it fades. Nice balance of sweet roasted malt and hops in the aroma. Flavor of dark roasted malt, slight coffee, lingering chocolate, string grassy hops, faint orange citrus, noticeable alcohol. Medium body.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Nice, and with the hoppiness, an interesting twist. Apropos brown pour. The hoppiness is at the front end and the brown nuttiness at the back. Overall balanced. Good. B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep brown color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is a mostly nutty toasty malt character. Flavor is mildly nutty sweet with a mild toasty kick. Nutty sweetness lasts into the finish. Fantastic brown ale.
