Release date: February 11th 2012 Wellington Brewery is proud to present a beer that bridges the gap between tradition and trend, Terrestrial India Brown Ale. This beer has the rich malt complexity of an English brown ale with layers of roasted caramel and earthy characteristics. Terrestrial is more than a traditional brown ale, it has been hopped in the style of an American Cascadian pale ale. Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hops dance on the nose while being accompanied by the refreshing citrus bitterness of infused cascade whole leaf hops. This beer will allow your senses to soar and explore while being grounded to terra firma.

2013-01-31 - on draught at Bar Hop. Refractive burnt copper, clear, with a solid creamy lasting beige head. Smells a bit like an altbier - dry woody and nutty lightly roasted malt, mild leafy bitterness, not much alcohol - hint of cocoa and mercifully not sweet. Taste follows - nutty/nutshell, hint of pencil shavings, a little burnt mahogany - not much alcohol and surprisingly bitter. Slick, a tad undercarbonated, a little astringent (almost a hint of smoke to it), finishes fairly long, low-level burnt and lightly bitter - really one of the best new offerings from Wellington in a long time.

This is a very dark brown and had a rich tan head when it was poured. It’s pretty complex, with a bit of malt along with smokiness, bitter chocolate and some nuttiness coming through from a combination of Cascade, Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hops. The 5.9-per cent ale has a lingering, slightly bitter finish.

On tap. Dark brown and cloudy. roasted and chocolate notes give way to some hoppy/floral notes and . On the palate it is rather sweet with a hoppy and bitter finish. It is better than most brown ales so that makes it a great little beer but that sweetness is a bit much.

I had this both on tap and on cask at The Only café. More mouthfeel and lacy on tap. Strange aroma for both versions. A sweet brown with some mild IPA thrown in.

Aroma: solid compilation of darker them with aromatic hop variety. Hint of chocolate, pit with garden zest.7+
Look: poured as clear dark amber with fairly dense almost creamy off white top. Sparse lace presented. 4-
Taste: lower carbonation. Strong earthy, woody notes typical to brown ale yet with bit more depth than most. Slight touch of zest on side. Drinkable , satisfying approach. Nice brewing.

A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, weird grassy malt with light off notes, roasted character. In mouth, light watery nutty malt with grassy hops, light chocolate, OK.

473 ml can at Loon. Very deep ruby with a so-so tan head. Lightly earthy, lightly nutty malts, light floral hops, a bit of brown sugar, not bad. Medium body, somewhat relaxed effervescence. Light nutty earthy brown sugar, vague and not great, oddly fruity, a little resinous and pine like, lightly vinous with a Newcastle brown character, meh; dry, moderate bitterness and a so so brown ale finish. Ok.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 Pours deep brown with a light tan head. The dominant hop aroma offers a lot of fresh grapefruit, with very slight roasty notes. The taste is of a clean, nicely made IPA - not too bitter up front, the malt is there but not the focus, a slight bit of toast. Citrusy hop finish with some slight herbal and spicy notes. This is the best beer I’ve had from this brewery.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
Draught at Bar Hop Customer Appreciation Night, Jan. 31. Pours a deep dark orange-amber with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, nuts, leafy hops and a hint of chocolate. Pleasant malty flavour along with leafy hops, some roastiness and notes of coffee. Average to medium bodied. Surprisingly good for this brewery, keep it up.
