COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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
