OMG, WTF! LIke LOL, STFU. As my friend from the north said - she’s an IPA masquerading as a Brown Ale. Which makes her a lovely brown! Earthy, bready hops throughout.

Dark copper color with a bone colored head. Head is moderately sized but rather clingy to the glass. Caramel and citrus aromas abound. I’m not a big fan of this combination, but I’m sure there are many who find it quite enjoyable. Light sweet start with caramel and grapefruit flavors. It’s not like a grapefruit with caramelized sugar on top, more grapefruit dipped in caramel. I’m thinking more and more like this is just a hop juiced strong amber. OK STFU and drink M’rF’r. Know what I’m saying. 6/10

Tap at new bohemia. Short pour. Light amber with medium white fuzzy head. Malty nose. Really nice balance. Malt but well balanced. High sugar. Great body. Liked it.

Stereotypical ale up front followed by a deep, yet suttle, chocolate and coffee notes. Good but don’t need to find again.

On tap at Butcher and the Boar in the Beer Garden. Brown in color like the rich color you’d find on a dresser at HOM Furniture. Plenty of head...like a half finger. Aroma has some elements of dark fruit and sweetness but is overall more muted than expected. Taste leans on sugary notes with chocolate, cherry, and maybe prune. Finish almost feels like it has coffee characteristics. Very roasted malt presence throughout. Slight oily mouthfeel with a nice finish. Feels like a starter version of a Belgian variety. There are better Lagunitas options but I still enjoy it more than most.

Bottle. Top notch brown ale. Dark copper color. Chocolate, dark fruit, piney aroma. The taste is caramel and toffee with grains and pine. Bitterness on the finish. Smooth and semi-rich. Really good, drinkable and complex. Highly recommended.

Very good brown ale; in fact the best brown ale I've had. Sinful' review just before mine is a perfect description of it!

Pours a dark brown-amber. Has a light hop, fruit, malt, and pine. Has a sweet malt and hop taste of caramel, citrus, fruits, and some nuts. A lingering bitter malt and hop aftertaste but not overwhelming.
