Originally part of the Wellington Welly One Off Series 2018 Description This unique beer strikes a beautiful balance of roasted malts and aromatic hops by bringing together the rich malt complexity of an English-style brown ale with 5 varieties of American-style hops: Chinook, Centennial, Cascade, Sorachi Ace, and Amarillo. Terrestrial India Brown Ale is dark mahogany brown in colour with a robust malt body and a pronounced bitter finish. 2012 Description 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.

    This came in a black silver can with only a sticker. What’s up with that? A solid mahogany coloured brew with a creamy light tan coloured head. Nutty malt, roasted malt, and caramel dominate the olfactory senses although there is some chocolate notes in the flavour. Not a bad beer at all

    Cap and flip-top bottle from the LCBO. Pours a dark amber, almost copper colour with a big head, warm-beige, frothy, creamy, long lasting and with lots of lace. At first, chocolate and mild vanilla aromas, with some grassy hops and fruity notes coming later. The taste is more on the dark roasted malts and the hops gets stronger in the finish. Decent dry mouthfeel, but still refreshing overall. Hints of fruits and nuts. Closer to a watery stout that meets an IPA. Still, a pretty good crossover brew.

    Pours a huge frothy beige head and has a dark brown appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of earthy hops. Flavours have a bit of a smokey like taste at first. Lots of malty and earthy hop flavours as well. Some good bitterness and sweetness, well balanced. Goes down quite well.

    Decent looking brown ale appearance. Long lasting head and plenty of lacing. Nuts and roasted malt aroma. Love the flavour of brown ale and hops. Roasted malt, burnt wood, chocolate, pine, floral and herbal. Pretty good job.

    I wish I had my camera with me because this has to be the cheapest packaging I have ever seen.......a generic aluminum can with a 2" diameter sticker denoting what's inside. The beer pours a translucent dark brown colour (when held to light) with a thin white creamy head. First aroma is dish soap, followed by some nut malt, roast, and coffee notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is coffee, chocolate, and some sweet caramel hints. Not very hoppy.

    Poured a clear reddish dark copper brown in the glass with a decent 2 finger sticky white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is big chocolate and cara-malts under a pleasant pacNW citrus-floral hop aroma. Med-light bodied, sandy mouth feel. Front side sees robust cascade bittering over a malty core....mid palate some light caramel and sweetness, goes to a fast clean bitter finish whi some lingering bitter after taste. To me this tastes essentially like a Cascadian dark minus the roast and char from black patent malt husks but without any strong brown ale character, not sweet enough and too bitter - a hybrid which seems to be still born. Interesting experiment.
