Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 1/19/13

Aroma: The nose has some citrus and pine hops with some caramel malts and toasty notes
Appearance: This one pours a dark reddish color with a medium sized off-white head
Flavor: The taste has some sweetness from the malts, and a medium-plus hop bitterness as well
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it is kind of creamy and a little thick, with a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid Imperial Red, but it falls just a hint short of being a top notch example for me. Solid stuff though, and certainly something I could see myself drinking again.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent reddish-orange with foamy off-white lacing. Smells solid; hoppy and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a slightly boozy but good mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Bottle Thanks Chris!. Poured clear dark reddish amber color with medium frothy off-white head that was that lasted with excellent lacing. Solid complex toasted malt, citrus and pine hop aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture with soft carbonation. Full bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good brew that exceeded my expectations.

Had on tap. Pours dark orange. Citrus and Pine notes. Hoppy and Bitter at start but mellows out with some nice malt and a slight amount of booziness. One of two bros best.

rxeight (1464) - Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2013
This one really suprised me. Verry hoppy. Great mix of citrius, pine and a little red ale flavor. Just the right amount of bitterness, nothing lingering. By far the best IPA from 2 Bros.

Patrickctenchi (3948) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Diffused, red-cast brown with a quick, tan head. Scent is warm oine, apple peel. Taste is pine hops, pepper, fruit. Malty, very slight alcohol bitter. Nice herbal hoppiness...

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Clear reddish brown; medium white head retains a partial covering and nice ring; medium lacing. Aroma malt, toast, spicy pepper. Flavor similarly malty, toasty, peppery; light caramel, touch of dark fruit; alcohol level not immediately obvious in the flavor but there is significant exhale warmth. Medium body, oily, bubbles are just a tad large to net this a "silky." Not my favorite style or particularly distinctive but, nonetheless, solid.
