Tons of fresh, wet hops from Washington State power through this stepped up version of our seasonal IPA.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Cask at Blind Tiger, NYC. Pours amber with a mild, off-white head. Strong pine and earthy hop aroma with some light citrus. Sweet flavor with some caramel maltiness and hints of vanilla, followed by herbal hops. Medium in body with sof carbonation. Finishes bitter, semi-spicy and fairly sweet. Very good.

bottle shared by anand and beth- Thanks! sticky caramel and sweet dough malt backing. some pleasant pine and floral hop character, though it has faded a bit. Has become more melon than hop forward. Not sure about the age of the bottle. I don’t get much wood in these two brothers beers. good, but probably better when fresh.

nsquishee (606) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Pours with a short, creamy, bubbly off-white head. Aroma of hops, strawberries, and oak. Tastes slightly bitter with lots of bubbles and a smooth texture. Flavor is hard to place with lots of hops, resin, bread malts, strawberry, and alcohol. Pretty smooth overall, but I wish it was in a 12oz rather than 22oz, cause that is a lot of thick beer to drink at once.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Tasted from bottle. Pours clear, dark, amber with a thick beige head that recedes to heavy lace. Nose is nice caramel malt with some grapefruit hops and fresh red apple. The flavors are very well balanced with hops, malt, and fruitiness coming through equally. The apple flavor is rather strong and very unique to and IPA for me. The body is medium plus with average carbonation and a long apple and bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Bottle. Hops, sweet malts, and oak come out. Notes of pepper, citrus, and whiskey stand out. Palate is smooth. Flavor brings out oak, finishing with a nice bitter hoppy bite. One of the best oak aged ipas I have had.

Thanks to zdk9 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the orange and pine hops. The flavor is more of the same with orange and resiny hops with some oaked notes. The hop profile is heavier on the citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This was my first Two Brothers beer and I hope to try more from them in the future.

Bottle. My style so I really liked it. Golden Amber, cloudy, nice light creamy tan head and some lacing. Plenty of malts and aromatic hops just to that cliff edge.
