Two Tier is brewed with 2 row pale, rye, carawheat and carafoam malts; and Centennial-type, MT Hood, Horizon and Amarillo hops.

A quality rogue ale. A good balance of rye. This was an experience, definatly not my favorite dank beer experience, but none the less... an Experience I’m glad to have had. Similar to a girl loosing her virginity. It sucks when it first happens, but she’s still glad it did... aqward. Rogue Nation!

Thanks got to FootBalm for sending another fine brew.Nice dark amber color,small off white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to a slight lace.Light malty aroma with a ery nice hop side some grapefruit and pine notes as well as a noticeably bitter side showing up there as well.slightly malty up front then it quickly changes to hops and grapefruit and a decently heavy bite of hops in the middle.It cools off a bit towards the end with the hops mellowing slightly to let more of the grapefruit side show up.The brew is not near as bitter in the finish as it let on to being in the beginning.It actually managed to finish up some what smooth with just a light bitterness.Over all a pretty decent brew and well worth having a few more.

Like the bitter acidity the rye adds. Nicely balanced with just the right amount of rye. Somewhat unassuming nose that shows little of the hops listed. Nice bitterness that coincides with the rye acidity. Clean finish with a touch of grass.

Brought this all the way from Oregon to drink on a festive occasion. Guess the super bowl is good enough reason. Bottled August 2004. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Sweet caramel meets the nose with a crisp hint of citrus hop. The hop taste is dominated more fiercely by pinesap and wood, but early on there are some grapefruit notes that are bright and subtle. The malt (caramel?) is present at the start but as the taste progresses this fades and the wood-pine hops dominate all the way thru to a long and lingering bitter finish. Almost too much at the end, but overall I’m glad I got to try this brew.

Sammy (10564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2004
Over-the-top hoppy, tough on tongue, particulary after over a dozen samples that were highly carbonated at Dog Shoemaker’s party. Orange colour,orange peel, grapefruit, some wheat, a tad of roast and dark fruit, pale malts, clean, smooth, fresh.

TAR (2581) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Blurry peach. Average sized dirty white foam. Sugared mandarin orange aroma with lights whiffs of phenols and peach. Sharp, overly fuzzy carbonation. Dense hop bitterness bludgeons the palate with bushy, earthy flavors backed with gooey caramel assertions. Progressively sharp with hints of medicine and plastic. Unrefined soggy hop flavors abound. Borderline cloying. Dry, phenolic finish overstates the astringency as the hop flavors quickly disengage, but dump their unbearably raw, grassy brashness on the palate with alcohol and plastic notes lingering. Just another Rogue brew with a sloppy, dull aroma and that typically crass, unrefined, over-the-top hop character with minimal malt to back it up. A muddled hop mess.

Dark yellow, light head. Tannic, bitter nose. Isanely bitter, total grapefruit flavor, not a whiff of malt. Yet strangely enticing...

Nice golden color, with a thick white head. Very hoppy, almost as hoppy as the limited release Hop Heaven Ale. The rye ads a unique earthy wheat flavor to the beer. Highly recommended if you can find it on tap.

Very full of flavor. Strong sharp taste, yellow orangish color. Must have out of a glass. Intense hop flavor. A must try before they stop brewing it.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Appearance: gorgeous, hazy orange color, thick, creamy head, very inviting, urging my nose forward... ah, fresh hoppitude in abundance, bold and fruity, apricot and peach, orange and more, with a gentle buzz...I like this a great deal, and forswear consumption until I’ve gotten my fair share of this deliciousness. Time to drink... Nice...brash, full flavored deliverance on the palate, great juicy bitterness, citric tastiness, ...medium bodied, excellent texture, long, bitter, fruity finish....very satisfying IPA. This is awesome, actually, a perfect citric pale ale, with an extra edge. I’m loving it. Damnably delightful, to this affirmed hophead! Except, I’m confused: the hops involved are Amarillo, Mt. Hood, & Centennial-type hops...what is "Centennial-type"? Didn’t want the real one, found a bargain on a phoney, what? Never mind, this is actually pretty damned amazing, and they ought to add this to the regular line-up, if their collective noodles are in order!
