Forget about the car companies, this is the original hybrid. A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale and an American Brown, Indian Brown is well-hopped and malty at the same time (It's magical!). The beer has characteristics of each style that inspired it: the color of an American Brown, the caramel notes of a Scotch Ale, and the hopping regimen of an India Pale Ale. We dry-hop the Indian Brown in a similar fashion to our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.

Wine EnthusiastDFH's beers are never really known to be shy on personality, and this year-round selection is no exception. A cross between a Scotch ale, IPA and American brown ale, this is assertively hoppy and malty all at once. The nose leads with forward scents of caramel, roasted nuts, chocolate-covered malted milk balls and brown sugar, underpinned by a seam of earthy, grassy hop. Accents of sweet smoke, wood spice and char lend additional depth to the bouquet. The mouthfeel is smooth, full and creamy, with sweet, malty notes of toffee, caramelized sugar, molasses and cocoa powder upfront, followed by piney hop flavors and lingering astringency that hang on through the dry finish. It's a complex and varied experience, but overall a well-rounded and balanced one.
