3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is a little odd, maybe the glass. Smells like yeast, dough, and citrus. Taste is better. Citrus and pine hops with some oakiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold with a healthy white head which laces very well and hangs around for a bit. Aroma of citrusy floral notes and pine in the background. Taste is very mild bitterness, sweet malt and a touch of astringency, tailing off into a thick citrus finish. Though they claim it is "aged in oak" I was disappointed as I had not a whiff of oak in the aroma or the taste.....a solid but not exceptional IPA.

Two Brothers Resistance IPA is a solid specimen of the style. Pleasant floral aroma coming off a nice pour. Slight citrus taste with a big pine notes. A bit of a bite on the swallow followed by some malt. Resistance is definitely worth the experience.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6/30/2010: Two Brothers Resistance India Pale Ale (Ale Aged in French Oak Foudres)... Aroma: Notes of vanilla; sweet citrus; grassy and herbal hops; yeast; generally soft and muted. Appearance: Golden blonde in color; hazy to cloudy complexion; ample carbonation; dense (almost rocky), lasting ivory-colored head; lots of puffy lacing. Flavor: Bottle description is mostly accurate, "oak, honeyed malt sweetness, and piney citrus hops, leads to a full hoppy middle and a finish that’s crisp, oaky and pleasantly lingering"; seems to be more floral and citrusy with some tropical fruit flavors (mango, pineapple, papaya) underneath the honey and toffee maltiness; gentle sweetness; fairly low bitternes (actually, it seems to compound with each sip - nice!), most likely tempered by the oaking; some oaky vanilla. Palate: Medium to medium-full; dense and creamy mouthfeel. Overall: More of a pale ale or Belgian Golden Ale, less of an IPA - maybe more like a "Belgian IPA"; very drinkable though, but not sure if the oaking was really necessary...
12 fl oz bottle (Alc 6.9% by Vol / 70 IBU) from "Arrogant Sweeping Bastard". Thanks Scott! Rating #163 for this beer.

Pours a golden orange with minimal but light tan head. Aroma is syrupy and citrus with a subtle hop presence. Taste is malty and sweet with a good middle of hops. The finish is crisp without too much lingering bitterness. My kind if IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet, citrus, and pine aroma. Golden straw in color. Well structured on the palate with a wonderful harmony between malt, hop, and alcohol. Well made, but unremarkable, easily forgettable.

12oz bottle from Binnys Lakeview. Pours a copper amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, some light oak, vanilla. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, oak, vanilla, pine hops, with a nice woody finish that lingers. We need more oak aged IPAs.
