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

Release #6 with mosaic hops. Pours deep dark brown with fluffy off white head. Chocolate malts hit your taste buds followed by the flower/citrus taste Of the hops. Beautiful lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. This beer is close to perfection ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emacgee (4585) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a soft ruddy coppery brown with one finger of yellowish tan head. Nose is a touch grassy with some soft earthy/biscuity notes. Definitely big time bready malt notes. Very biscuity malt flavor with very little sweetness.

Shaker cask draft at Churchills Pub in San Marcos, California. The pour is a lightly hazed brown copper with a light tan head. The aroma is bitter chocolate, paired with grass, floral hops and a pleasantly sweet malt. The taste is the nose, fresh hop character up front, balanced nicely with equally fresh nice cocoa, lightly bitter and grass in the aftertaste. All of this is framed by a soft roast. The palate is medium to light bodied, soft cask carbonation and the dry finish. Nice stuff.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Clear brown pour with fair tan head. Caramel and pecan quickly become dominated by the lovely pine/earth hoppiness. Lingering semi-bitterness on the finish. Decent brown base with a nice pleasant earthy hoppy surprise twist. Enjoyed this quite a bit.

Ibrew2or3 (8055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2013
Growler filled at Angel’s Trumpet pours with a dark brown body supporting a nice looking quarter inch tall light mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of roasted malts and sweet malts. Behind those notes are thin rings of nuttiness, earthy malts and faint hops that seem somewhat pine like. The taste is straight up smooth and creamy on the palate with roasted malts and faintly burnt malts that give way to chocolate and then dark roasted coffee. Midway and on to the finish the malt roastiness surges forward while a pine hop note surfaces. Damn, this is rich and smooth and creamy seemingly like an Imperial Brown or something. Well done. This is not your typical boring Brown.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4350) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 11, 2013
On tap at the Yokohama Brewer’s Cup. It pour a dark slightly muddy brown with an off-white head which left good lacing behind. A somewhat hoppy brown, fairly well balanced. A nice everyday bitter brown beer.

after4ever (7490) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2013
22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that falls quickly to a flat disc, which then sticks around for a while. Lots of eggy lace. Mild molasses nose, soft pine and herbal hop notes. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Brown bread crust and molasses mid palate with a mild herbal hop finish. Very well made, but they’re overselling it by calling it "hoppy" on the label.

Brown in color clear with a thin tan head. Dark roasty malt flavor and aroma. Good hops addition that gives off a good bitter flavor and finish. Nice beer.
