4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours a copper orange color with a fruity aroma with some essence of hops. Very fruity sweet taste with some grapefruit and a mild bitterness at the end. Enjoyable session beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonus 22oz after a PtY trade - thanks John! Pours a pretty golden orange with minimal head that disappears quickly. Nose is full of juicy citric hops, light wood, apple juice and sweet malt. Flavor is very much the same, though the wood steals some of the hoppy brightness. Flatness makes the whole thing a mite sweeter than I prefer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Outstanding IPA,. Pours a dark hazy orange, great head. Aroma is hop tones but lightly subdued. A familiar hop nose(cascade?) The taste is extremely well balanced between the obvous malt presence and the hop. Finish crisp and bitter!!
