Indian Brown Ale
The prototypical Dark IPA
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 Ale 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 Ale in a similar fashion to our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.
Indian Brown Ale is available year-round, so you should be able to find it at fine retailers and restaurants that carry our other year-round beers. Don't see it? Ask! Most great retailers would love to hear from you.
