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.

Draft at the Hyatt Regency The IPA poured a clear amber with a big head, with good lacing. There is citrus on the nose. The IPA has a medium body with average carbonation. This is nice IPA with citrus and a hint of coffee in the taste. The dry finish ended with lingering bitterness in the upper mouth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a gentle nice hazy copper color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some lovely light somewhat foamy lacing sliding down the glass.
The smell was floral with a side of caramel malts trying to combine but staying mostly in the background.
The taste was semi - sweet through the malts and letting the floral hops settle into the background.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was nice and harsh invading my tongue just as it should.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good option for an AIPA that I would probably keep as a regular in my fridge if I lived in the distro of this company.

Malty, sugar forward ipa, but better than that would normally suggest. Initial taste is sweet, with caramel and hops. Not wild about it, but would drink again.

Can. Pours kind of an ugly orange-brown with very little head. Nose is nice grapefruit with a little tropical touch. Taste adds some nice malt sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint of deep gold honey with a dissipating off white head. Nose is America IPA standard, hops, citrus and grapefruit, more resin. Flavor is citrus and grapefruit with more resinous hops. Really decent flavor. I dig it.

Nice smooth and creamy, it goes down nice and malty but the hops come in a second tier and gives it a wonderful overall flavor, perfect for a casual IPA drinker

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Can at State and Lake, 6/24/14
Aroma: The aroma on this one has some spice and orange hops
Appearance: It has an orange colored pour, an off-white head and some streaky lace
Flavor: It has a pretty solid flavor, similar to the nose, and somewhat balanced
Palate: This beer has an average-plus carbonation, decent body, and a medium-dry finish
I thought this one was decent, but it wasn’t a beer that I loved. Solid, but not great is probably the best way to describe this beer.
