2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Pours lightly hazy amber with a off-white head. Nose is dry, crackery malt, soapy with graham cracker, herbal hops, and a touch of perfume. Taste is dry, bready malt, a bit nutty, with herbal hops, sop, mineral--and a grassy, herbal hop finish. A bit watery, thin, with limp carbonation.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big dry hopped citrusy and resiny aroma. Clear light orange, Whispy white lacing. Sips very with grass, herbal, piney, resiny, earthy like hop flavors. Fruity bitter grapefruity as well. Pronounced hop bitterness which attacks the tongue as though it had much higher ibu, very impressive. Still havenít had mediocre two beers brew. Slight afterbreath of rotten eggs though.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
