4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Sport-Drink" style pint-can:
Deep brown with tall, tan head.
Scent is...pine resin...of unexpected strength...
This is a different breed, for sure.....
An IPA/Brown mix.
The brown contributes malt and dark bitters, while the IPA aspects impart strong herbals....and a predominate hop bitter throughout.
High "WOW" points for unexpected sensations.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at BD Brum, 8/5/14. Pours clear dark nut-brown, cream head that fades. Nose of toast, bread, caramel, juicy citrus hops. Tastes moderate sweet caramel, nutty malt, brown bread, toast, big bitter, juicy citrus, some light tropical, resinous hop character. Medium body, oily, well-carbonated, lingering hop bitterness mingling with sweet/light acid toasty malt. This is really good, the Galaxy dry-hop character is very evident. My favourite of the style to date.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"My favorite beer of Canfest 2012 (went back 3 times!). dark amber/red-brown in color. Thinking more india brown ale than brown ale. What Oskar Blues can do with a single hop (think Gubna) is nothing short of amazing. THE best brown ale I’ve ever had...knocking off DFH Indian Brown, which is similar, but this is bigger, baddder and resher. The hop spice and roasted malt assault is great!! Hope to see this again. Soooo close to a 4.4 - probably will coem back and change it :)"

Just another typical imitation US style beer. Nothing outstanding, there are better beers in the US by far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a deep brown color with a thin creamy light brown. Aroma is a light toasty malts, and lots of hop character, floral, tropical fruits, mild pine. Flavor is light toasty sweetness, also some hoppy sweetness, not much bitter. Thick creamy palate. Lingering toasty malts and strange hop character. Interesting beer. Not a brown ale, not an IPA, maybe somewhere in the middle?
