Clear dark brown with a small beige head and some lacing
Aroma and flavors of toasted malts, pine and floral
A nice brown
Brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of nutty malt, moderate piney hops. Flavor: mild chocolate, a little caramel, light roasty edge, resiny hop bitterness that lingers.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to the Boise crew. Aroma of toast, pine, citrusy. The flavor is pine, citrusy, toffee, toast. The flavor lingers a bit. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Mildly nutty with a bit of a roast background. Faint earth and mild resin. Fairly dry. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2013
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Very good dark malts mixed with citrus and cascade hops flavors. This was a very good beer.

Pours murky dark brown with a medium-sized head. Good retention and lace. Bright sweet aroma even when poured cold. Nice hop-malt balance on the nose and on the palate. Definitely different than a Black IPA. Nice malt and no roast, primarily. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture and a bitter finish. Another winner. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Pours a hazy brown color. Initial aroma is citra forward then some cattiness takes over. Taste is medium bitter. The hoppiness does not linger. Just a bit of sparkle might have added to it. Real nice. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2013
Paid $2 at Brewforia Meridian for the 12oz bottle. Pillowy 2+ finger tan head... the brew is walnut with good clarity.
Aroma is nice... A good balanced mix between piney/pithy grapefruit hoppiness and sorta nutty and dark toasty maltiness... Not really getting any cocoa/chocolate qualities.. pretty interesting.
Flavor is a damn solid PNW hoppy brown ale... hop profile mirrors the nose.... good bitter bite is tempered by the bigger/diverse maltiness... the finish lingers forever ping-ponging back and forth between citrus/resinous pine and a subtle sweet nutty maltiness.
Body is medium/light... small bubble carbonation lends to a bit of a creamy mouthfeel.
Probably the best American Brown (Brown India Pale Ale ;-) I have ever had.
