Can, shared by Skyview. Soap and oxidation. It is bitter but the flavor is muddled. Drinkable, but it needs some work.

Pours a golden somewhat hazy orange/brown color and leaves the same color body with a fingerís worth of foamy white head that quickly dies leaving a good amount of foamy clingy lacing in rings; the aroma has the hops coming through in a slightly piney yet citrusy sort of fashion, nicely done and bitter, super light amount of malts; the taste is mainly bitter to start, and a slight malty flavoring does eventually settle in as it warms; dry bitter aftertaste and finish; its pretty easy on the palate and is fairly sessionable, carbonation is good for the style; overall, Iím pretty sure Two Beers did exactly what they wanted to do: 1) IPA 2) sessionable 3) flavorful and Iíll add "backpackable" and well worthy to come back to

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can date: unknown
A: Pours a golden ale with near excellent clarity. Two fingers of fluffy white head falls in a few minutes leaving sticky lumpy lacing.
S: Citrus, fresh cut grass and a hint of cilantro. Light malt presence.
T: Again pretty grassy, but really refreshing on this front. Malts are a little oxidized (like they used older malts that had been sitting a little too long). Sweet and bitter, not much complexity on the hop profiles.
M: Medium body with high carb. Dry finish.
O: This is a sessionable ale, unfortunately, for this new substyle of IPA/ESB/Paleís (session ales <5%ABV). This beer falls short of what I would consider the front runner in the style: 21st Amendmentís Bitter American.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smelled like cream pouring it out of the can, not a lot of aroma in the glass. Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a white head and good lacing. Nice creamy smooth mouthfeel with a light bitterness some floral tones a touch of resin. Gets a lot better as it warms.
