Lost Coast Brewery (Eureka, CA)
"Smooth and full-bodied, it’s our signature brown ale, and it’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a beer that’s dark in color without the heaviness of a porter or stout. For such a sophisticated blend, the taste is surprisingly simple. It’s lightly hopped and features chocolate and caramel malts imported from Jolly ol’ England."
Toasty malt, sweet (almost too sweet) nuttiness.
Very drinkable and completely unremarkable ... but it is so not an IPA which was exactly what I was looking for.
5.0% Abv, 14 IBU
