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.

Bought a six pack of this at Whole Foods Devon because the Two Brothers Sidekick was an awesome beer. So I thought "how could this be bad?". And it wasn’t. It just wasn’t good either. Very so-so IPA. I’d drink it again if I didn’t have to buy it, I just wouldn’t spend money on it. Malty taste, some hops but nothing stood out. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 4-07-2014. This canned beer has a small beige head with a lengthy retention, hazy deep golden body, semi-fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine hops. The taste is quite bitter, caramel malt, citrus, and pine hops. The mouthfeel is lively nad this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quite hoppy tasting as it should be given the style. The hops are in your face and it is a bit too hoppy tasting for my palate. It is worth trying if one likes very hoppy tasting beer.

[Tap] Pours a lighter shade of amber. Not much head to it. I get more grass than grapefruit from the aroma. The taste is more citrus and pine forward. Sweet caramel and some earthy straw is evident in here too. Lingering bitter finish becomes somewhat metallic. Pretty average. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated slightly hazy dark orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and caramel malt. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of caramel hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Craft Beer Cellar in Brandon, FL. Pour is orange-brown with frothy white head and strong retention. Aroma of earthy herbal, pine and floral. Tastes are pine, citrus, caramel, slightly acidic. Finishes fairly clean with a light lingering bitterness. Think slightly watery palate. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright amber, rocky head. Aroma has a touch of amber toastiness, clean piney hop with a touch of grapefruit. Clean brew...has that neutered character, but I like the slightly toasty malts like a delicate addition of crystal, and the piney hops with moderate bitterness provides good balance.
