On tap at Whirlyball in Vernon Hills to celebrate my other brother’s 40th. Pours orangey-brown with a bit of an off-white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit, citrus and some resin. Taste is of bitter citrus, resin, somewhat sticky with some sweet caramel. Well balanced. Finishes nicely bittersweet and long. Very nice IPA; everything I am looking for when I go to a place and order one.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Draft. Pouts deep gold orange with a small white head. Aroma is nicely Citric, fresh fruity notes and a touch of pine and herbal. Flavor starts sweet and Citric some caramel malt coming in that adds a touch too much breadiness for me but finishes clean and not too bitter. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Very session able easy ipa

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Draft at the Rev Grand Opening. Pours an orangey gold with a big white head. Nose is a bit odd. Lots of citrus and pine, but also an odd savory note that carries into the flavor. Dried out malts, a bit thin as well and a touch boozy feeling. On tasint, the savory, almost meaty note comes back, along with some woody hops. Kind of lacking that juicy fruity note that the great IPAs tend to have. Odd, this one. Will try this again.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Muddy orange-amber with good, creamy, off-white head / Brilliant, weedy nose of citrus, caramel, and fresh cut pine / Medium body, some sweetness, just a touch watery, but with good balance and bitter finish / Flavors of orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, cut pine, caramel, and bubblegum / Body issues detract from the strong flavor profile, but still a fine beer and effort from this new brewer.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Draft pint at Standard Market. $4! A cloudy, yellowish brown, somewhat accentuated by the yellow from the Two Brothers logo on the tumbler they served it in thin foam ring. Hoppy smell of Amarillos or their kin. Taste is big big big on hops; mostly pine needles and resin, delivering its primary blast to the back half of the mouth. Not really a Double IPA, just a hopped up one. Served a little too cold, but maybe I don’t want to be there when it warms up. Then there’s a smooth, just slightly sweet and nutty malt bill to keep this beer in its cage. A gobstopping beer experience.

Picked up a growler from the brewery. Pours hazy orangish amber with white head. Aromas of resiny hops, grapefruit, light pine, peaches, and mango. Flavor of citrus, tropical fruit, resiny hops, caramel malt, and moderate hop bitterness. Nice to have a fresh IPA for once. Solid.
