Tap at WOB. At least this wasnít from the Brothers Two, Hessville humor. Hazy gold color with a slight head. Piney hops for the aroma, I didnít note any oak. Hoppy, tart taste with a tart finish. WOB.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy deep amber colored body with a fluffy tan head. I get smells of Oak, vanilla and a hit of pine. Itís dry and woody taste gives way to grapefruit and Pine. I like how the spice and pine in the hops works perfectly with the woody notes from the oak. Some malt balances it out. So far Two Brothers is impressive, Now to find the others I havenít tried yet.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best ipaís ive had. Im a sucker for oak too but, oak was pretty well blended or hidden.Beautiful smell seems complex almost seems to burn your nose detecting sweetness and a floral exotic mystery scent.Just a great aroma.Light copper to light golden in color, good creamy head with nice lacing.Taste is smooth kinda slick mouthfeel , mild herbal hop flavor,good mellow lingering bitterness plenty of malt backbone and light sweetness somewhat sessionable,really nice ipa.Malt is somewhat grainy chewy in a good way.A good beer to apreciate in moderation, i would love to try it on tap.All two brothers beers have won my vote so far. I have yet to have an average tasting one.

Yep, this is good! Multiple 12oz pours from 6íer. Excellent malt / hop, sweet / bitter balance. On the finish, I can just detect that oak-aging, but not a predominant feature.

POurs light amber with generous notes of citrus. The hops shine with citrus and some light oak along with the sweetness of the malts....they blend very well and stand up to a long finish.

Bottle from Two Brothers shared with ck1, "should be fresh". Pours a pale yellowish orange with a small head. Aroma is floral hops, lemon citrus and pine. Taste is very crisp sweet fruit with some bitterness and lemon. Finishes very short and very nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear gold color with a white head. Smelled of flower blossom, citrus fruits, and pale malt. Very floral nose. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with moderate bitterness. Flavors followed the aromas. Pretty well balanced IPA tilted toward hop and away from malt somewhat.

Pours blonde with a white head. Nice lacing. Fruity citrus, malt, bread, and oak notes. German yeast character. The oak aging gives this beer a unique flavor.
