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.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2012
Can: Poured a clear medium brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of grainy malt with light dry caramel notes with some funky and lightly citrusy hops notes. Taste is a weird mix between some unrefined grainy cereal notes and some stale hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. I either got a bad can of this or maybe it just didn’t fit my style but I though the hops were stale and lacking and the malt base used wasn’t the greatest.

En fût au Gambrinus, London, Ont.:Corps caramel touffu, plein de rondeur avec une morsure végétale et d’agrumes. Moyenne amertume bien supporté par la richesse du malt. Très agréable.

An interesting mix. On at Food & Drink Fest Hamilton. Seemed more to me like a chocolate stout than a brown ale and couldn’t detect much hops in the aroma or taste.

I tried this beer on March 9, 2012 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I wish I had my camera with me because this has to be the cheapest packaging I have ever seen.......a generic aluminum can with a 2" diameter sticker denoting what’s inside. The beer pours a translucent dark brown colour (when held to light) with a thin white creamy head. First aroma is dish soap, followed by some nut malt, roast, and coffee notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is coffee, chocolate, and some sweet caramel hints. Not very hoppy.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 2013-01-31. Dark brown body, nice tan head and lace. 3+ Modest aroma, bit of hops and earthy malt character. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly bitter, light leafy green hop character, mild earthy malt notes. Light roast in the finish comes out as you go. 7+ average plus palate. 3++ nice, very drinkable. 7/4/7/4/16 On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto

2012-02-25. Mahogany red-brown body, modest tan and and nice lace on the glass. Flavour is interesting, modest hoppy bitterness over a mild brown ale like base, lingering leafy green hops. Pleasant, very well balanced. I would like more assertive hops but you might lose a bit of the drink-ability that way. 7+ Fairly mild aroma, light green hops, muted malt. 6+ Average palate suits it. 7/4/7/3/15 On tap at Volo, Toronto

The aroma is muddled at best. Very brown and laces glass nicely. Impressive amount of hop flavour while avoiding a strong bitterness which may disappoint hardcore hop heads but still a very worthy brown ale.

On tap at volo. Clear dark brown/amber pour. Burnt malt and earthy aroma with a citrus. Smooth medium mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly sweet caramel and burnt malt, little bitterness and sour grapefruit finish. Not overpowering by any stretch. Nice balance. Really nice offering from Welly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
