On-tap, Brouwers Hopfest - Hazy golden body with a soft white head. Soft, creamy mouthfeel that was abundantly floral with a somewhat grainy pale malt backbone. Slight citrus sharpness that provided a crisp finish. Soft herbal notes and a moderate lingering pine bite. Very nice.

Tap at Malt and Vine. Poured orange with a thin white head. Aroma is light and lemony. Flavor is light, toasty malt with a strong, dry grapefruit hop finish. There’s a pleasant sour note in the aroma and flavor that I have not encountered in an IPA previously. Very tasty and balanced with a nice, lasting hop finish.

Uninteresting IPA. The bartender at the brewery nailed to description pretty well. The flavor that stuck out the most to me was grape. Very dry finish. No biggie. The other IPA offerings from Two Beers are exceptional, even the ISA is exemplary.

The good news is that these days, it takes better than a fair beer to make any semblance of a positive impression in the saturated PacNW IPA market. The bad news is that this beer is not better than a fair beer.
Citrus blast, fairly malt-heavy, astringent. Drinkable, not special.
