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.

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

On tap at Volo. Pours a clear dark orange/brown with modest-sized head. Aroma is moderate citric hops, dark malt. Flavour is similarly modest citric cops and caramel/chocolate maly - does in fact taste like a brown ale crossed with an IPA. Average bitterness in finish. Nice.

Can, thanks to scott. Really tasty stuff. Very easy finish and a good solid body. Lots of hoppy character, very earthy. Think this is the best one off from welly so far

Deep brown pour with a tight white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy with a touch of soft malt Fairly crackery and a little bit earthy as well. Soft and a touch of lingering bitterness. Pretty decent actually.

473ml can from the brewery. dark brown with a small ta head. nice malty nose, not a lot of hops there. flavour is solid, nice malt progression, late whack of hop bitterness. pretty solid brew. more late addition hops would make it better but as far as hoppy browns go this one is pretty good.

Poured a clear reddish dark copper brown in the glass with a decent 2 finger sticky white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is big chocolate and cara-malts under a pleasant pacNW citrus-floral hop aroma. Med-light bodied, sandy mouth feel. Front side sees robust cascade bittering over a malty core....mid palate some light caramel and sweetness, goes to a fast clean bitter finish whi some lingering bitter after taste. To me this tastes essentially like a Cascadian dark minus the roast and char from black patent malt husks but without any strong brown ale character, not sweet enough and too bitter - a hybrid which seems to be still born. Interesting experiment.

473mL can from the brewery. Pours a clearish dark brown with a large beige head that leaves lacing. Aroma is superb, layered malt complexity, lots of caramel, roasted malt, toffee, coffee cake, slightly earthy, but what really stands out is the hops, which don’t seem out of place. Flavour is even better, with bittering hops upfront, matched perfectly with waves of malty awesomeness. The deep, rich caramalt aspect reminds me of a Dopplebock, which is always a good thing in my books. ’Chewey’ is a good word here if it makes any sense. Finishes with some dryness and delicious hop flavour. Lingering roasted malt notes. No hint of alcohol, and the body is somewhat full on the palate in a pleasing way. This is absolutely fantastic stuff, very glad I drove out to the brewery to get some.
