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.

Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
This IBA poured a deep brown colour with a big, beautiful, tan coloured, rocky head. Not much lacing. To the nose there are scents of gravy, dough and dark malts. Very strong smelling in the gravy dept. First sip was interesting with strong hop flavours and roasted malts with a little caramel and light coffee. Finish is bitter withy the roasted malts and coffee lingering.

473ml can thanks to grub.
Appearance : Clear deep brown with small head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Resinous and slightly citrusy hops with dark caramel notes. Toffee and light roasted malt notes.
Taste : Caramel with resinous and citrusy hops. Light piny notes. Light malt. Finish gets maltier with caramel and resinous hops.
Palate : Carbonation is fairly soft. Nice fit to the beer.
Overall : Nice hop profile. Nice caramel. There is something that bother me a bit on the nose... maybe some light veggy notes. Nice citrusy hops on finish. Quite drinkable and decently made.

Nutty, good cereal malts, light citrus, piney hops. Lovely pine resin finish with a shot of nutty, woody malts. Great stuff.

Boutip (5898) - 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.

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 26, 2012
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.

473ml can
5.9% ABV
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.
