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.

Gluepot (756) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2015
A fluffy ivory brown head. The nose is quite faint, with elements malt and chocolate. Chocolate and cream lead the taste profile, which is unusual for a brown ale, to say the least. That said, this is an understated, well blended beer with sub-tastes of mild grassy hops and roasted nuts. A bit off category but it all hangs together.

750 mL ridiculous bottle. There should be a rule against putting ordinary beers in elaborate packaging and then charging the consumer for the packaging. Or maybe I should just smarten up and stop falling for this shit. This one somehow manages to miss out on the best qualities of both the "india" and the "brown."

MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep brown colour with a generous lasting off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some cocoa. Taste is nuts, roasted malts, a bit of chocolate.

jksipa (1035) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Deep clear mahogany with a one finger tan head that lingers and leaves some spotty lace. Nose of chocolate, nuts and wood. with some grassy hop presence. Light sweet toffee and nut with a more pronounced chocolate and pine bitterness. Medium light creamy mouth with soft carbonation. Interesting hybrid but I still prefer a good black IPA.

2013-01-31 - on draught at Bar Hop. Refractive burnt copper, clear, with a solid creamy lasting beige head. Smells a bit like an altbier - dry woody and nutty lightly roasted malt, mild leafy bitterness, not much alcohol - hint of cocoa and mercifully not sweet. Taste follows - nutty/nutshell, hint of pencil shavings, a little burnt mahogany - not much alcohol and surprisingly bitter. Slick, a tad undercarbonated, a little astringent (almost a hint of smoke to it), finishes fairly long, low-level burnt and lightly bitter - really one of the best new offerings from Wellington in a long time.

This is a very dark brown and had a rich tan head when it was poured. It’s pretty complex, with a bit of malt along with smokiness, bitter chocolate and some nuttiness coming through from a combination of Cascade, Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hops. The 5.9-per cent ale has a lingering, slightly bitter finish.

Draught sample at cest what. Bold brown ale. Very hoppy. Nice India brown ale. Loved it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
On tap. Dark brown and cloudy. roasted and chocolate notes give way to some hoppy/floral notes and . On the palate it is rather sweet with a hoppy and bitter finish. It is better than most brown ales so that makes it a great little beer but that sweetness is a bit much.

Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
I had this both on tap and on cask at The Only café. More mouthfeel and lacy on tap. Strange aroma for both versions. A sweet brown with some mild IPA thrown in.

Can 473 ml
Aroma: solid compilation of darker them with aromatic hop variety. Hint of chocolate, pit with garden zest.7+
Look: poured as clear dark amber with fairly dense almost creamy off white top. Sparse lace presented. 4-
Taste: lower carbonation. Strong earthy, woody notes typical to brown ale yet with bit more depth than most. Slight touch of zest on side. Drinkable , satisfying approach. Nice brewing.
