Brown's Harvest IPA
They say you never get another chance to make a first impression, which I agree with. However, I do believe in second chances. Sometimes if I have a beer that’s surprisingly bad I’ll go back to it later and see if it was an isolated incident. That’s certainly the deal with Brown’s Harvest IPA. I originally dumped my first bottle just a couple weeks ago because it was terrible. I contacted the brewery and they told me they’d give me another bottle from another batch (thanks, Brown’s!). Though this particular bottle didn’t blow me away, I do detect a similar off-flavor that was much more prominent in the first bottle. I’ve also had this beer on tap and it was vastly superior. I’m not sure what accounts for the differences in flavor, but this review is based on the second bottle.
