Baraboo Hayrack Brown IPA

Baraboo Beers are a proprietary brand of the Hy-Vee chain of Midwestern supermarkets.  The beers are contract brewed by Stevens Point Brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. This brown IPA (that's a style now?) features dark Munich malts and Australian Enigma hops.

The beer pours a deep dark amber and medium-dark brown in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is roasted and sweet caramel malt and a tangy, citrus fruitiness. The taste follows the aromas, malt both roasty and sweet, along with tangy, fruity hops, with orange and berries. The finish is dry with a light to moderate bitterness. The beer drinks easy and smooth, with tingling carbonation.
