Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

A / 4.4
Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale, and an American Brown, Dogfish Head’s Indian Brown Ale is well-hopped and malty at the same time. 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 regiment of an India Pale Ale. They dry-hop the Indian Brown Ale in a similar fashion to the 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPAs. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.

The Indian Brown Ale is available year-round, so you should be able to find it at fine retailers and restaurants who carry other Dogfish Head beers.

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA

90 Minute IPA was Dogfish Head’s first continually-hopped beer, which is a method of hopping that allows for a pungent, but not crushing hop flavor. Since introducing the world to the continual-hopping method with their 90 Minute IPA, they’ve since released a continually-hopped 60 Minute IPA, 120 Minute IPA and even a 75 Minute IPA (a cask-conditioned blend of 60 & 90 Minute IPAs).

In addition to the continual-hopping 90 Minute IPA receives during the boil, they also utilize their ‘Me So Hoppy’ device to dry-hop the beer during conditioning.
