25th is Silver, 30th Anniversary is ...Brown?

As in Indian Brown, the style chosen by Boulder for their newest release, Flashback. Flashback celebrates the 30th anniversary of the brewery, which is no small feat in such a fickle business. This beer is part of Boulder's Looking Glass series, which I think of as their best stuff (think Mojo, Mojo Risin', Killer Penguin, Obovoid). The Indian Brown style is. of course, a hybrid of a brown ale and an IPA, a style not done by many breweries. I know that locally, Chama recently did one, and Dogfish Head brews one on the national scene. Flashback is 6.8% abv and I have seen it at Kelly's and Jubilation so far.
