Two Tier is brewed with 2 row pale, rye, carawheat and carafoam malts; and Centennial-type, MT Hood, Horizon and Amarillo hops. It meatures in at 17 degrees Plato, 72 IBU, 7.5% ABV, 82 Apparent Attenuation. Dedicated to Mount Hood, Alaskan and Wine Warehouse.

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 Iíve 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. Iím loving it. Damnably delightful, to this affirmed hophead! Except, Iím confused: the hops involved are Amarillo, Mt. Hood, & Centennial-type hops...what is "Centennial-type"? Didnít 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!

When I tasted this beer it blew me away. Just my style with lots of hops and a malt twist of rye. On tap @ stone anniversary , favorite of the day. Butterscotch color. You can really notice their distinctive yeast strain in this beer. Highly recommend it.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2006 Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>Larry Pitonka, thanks Andre. Deep orange amber in colour, very thin quickly dissipating off-white head, some leftover lace on the side of the glass. The aroma was plenty hoppy with lots of citrus, pine and some caramel malt sweetness. The hops carry over into the flavour as well. Still lots of citrus (grapefruite and oranges) and pine, soft caramel malts, earthly in the back. Bitter dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and lingering. Quite nice.

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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Orange color with a thin white head. Nice floral hop aroma (but after tasting it thought there could have been more aroma). Flavor is huge hops mostly bitter but some flavor hops too. Body is a little thin, but not in a bad way, with some malt sweetness helping to give some balance

On tap @ Summitís Sandy Springs - Pours a dark orange color with a nice little frothy head and some really nice residual lacing. The aroma is hoppy with an orange peel floral aroma, but the flavor is as they say tongue tingling and you do not really realize until the finish, when it lingers and has a very bitter aftertaste. This is a great beer, a very nice palate killer that would only be nice to try once.

bottle. hazy orange body with a small white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. big hoppy aroma with plenty of yeastiness - nice. very hoppy! in some ways it doesn’t seem as much so as the Glen even though the bottle says it has 22 more IBU. it’s very one dimensional though for a brief moment there are some soft biscuity malts but not nearly enough to even it out. very long lingering bitter finish. alcohol is well masked. pretty damn good.

blankboy (5971) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle shared with tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a beautiful clear dark orange with a big rocky off-white head. Big hoppy aroma along with rye, malt and caraway seeds. Flavour of rye, caraway seeds, hops, pepper and malt. Thatís got to be one of the strangest list of flavours Iíve written for an IPA. I quite liked this -- itís definitely original and youíve got to respect Rogue for trying something different.

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.
