4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. can. Floral, fruity aroma features mango, peach, grapefruit, strawberry, and perfume scents. Dirt and chalk dryness in the smell. Bran muffin and pine scents. Complex aroma that changes as the imbiber sniffs. Very pleasant and just what one wants out of an American IPA aroma. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold that produces a great glow in the light of the sun. Moderate amount of beige head and good lacing. Attractive and appetizing appearance. Flavors of citrus (especially grapefruit) and pine from the hops. Peach, apricot juice, and sweet muffin. Solid American IPA flavor. Dry finish and very light, dry aftertaste. Soft in the palate, not unlike one of my favorite IPAs, Surly Furious. Light to moderate body. Easy to drink. Wow, Two Brothers Outlaw India Pale Ale is surprisingly good; I’m very impressed! I must say that I am befuddled by the lowly reviews of this outstanding beer on this site. It is refreshing, aromatic, tastes good, looks good, and feels good. For what more can you ask? We’ve all tried many an IPA. I think this is one of the best on the market. It is definitely on the soft, floral, and sweet side of the style, despite what the name may suggest, and perhaps that plays a part in throwing off other raters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, amber-gold pour with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma has floral hops along with some milder earthy notes. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and hides the relatively high alcohol well.

Aroma is grass, citrus peel, and slight soap. Pours beautifully amber and clear with a medium sticky head. Taste is citrus, malty caramel, crispy chicken skin, and slight wet dog. Finishes really well with a pleasant malt with just a hint of pine. Good but not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can enjoyed while watching the football game on an outside tv in the cool evening. Nose sweet floral hop and hint of pine. Taste mild grapefruit bite up front. Decent mid palate bitter. Some initial fruit sweetness and bitter finish. I thought this was a reasonable ipa in a can.

Pours a clear orange color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal hops and fruit.
