Appearance - Pours a dark, clear golden orange with a white, 3 finger head. Good retention, resulting in a broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is sparse and spotty, but sticks well to the glass.
Smell - Primarily a citrus scent, with hints of pine and floral hop character. Toasted bread aroma sits beneath the hop .
Taste - Follows the nose. Orange pith bitterness upfront. Toasted bread and biscuit maltiness provides a strong backbone. Floral with touches of hop spice in the finish, along with a hint of butteriness.
Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with soft, tingly carbonation. Very smooth and inviting, going down with a remarkable silkiness.
Overall - A drinkable, well balanced IPA from ARBC. Hop Bomb seekers, look elsewhere. While this weighs in at a healthy 70 IBU's, the strong malt presence gives this more balance on the tongue than the numbers would indicate. With the quality of brews they deliver at a reasonable price point, ARBC is quickly becoming my favorite Sacramento area brewery. The Brown is to die for!
