Description
My attempt at an extract clone on Terrapin's India style Brown Ale.
Submitted by mdboulier on 26-Feb-2010

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Not quite the full mouthfeel that Terrapin's has, but delicious and very drinkable. Great aroma, head retention, color (not as dark as Terrapin's). Considering I wasn't able to really customize much with the grains because I was making an extract recipe, this turned out very well. Next time I might play around with the hops a bit but I was very happy.
Awards "Dude! We're making this again!" and "I think this is the best beer I've ever had." but of course nothing official... soon though.
