Buddy, pal, mate, brother (or sister) from another mother, compadre . . . sidekick. All of these are ways to describe someone or something that is always at your side. Sidekick extra pale ale is one of those things. This golden colored ale is loaded with juicy citrus and passion fruit hop aroma yet balanced with malt and hop character. A true companion.

Pour from a 12 oz can. Fantastic aroma of tart fruit - pear, green apple - and mango, grass. Crystal clear yellow brew with fluffy white head. Taste is light sweet malt offset by tart fruit, start to finish with a little more grass in the end. Light and crisp with moderate carbonation. Refreshing light flavor. Most excellent APA.

big grassy, citrus hop notes, along with a bit of fruitiness. really nice clear light golden color, like a german helles lager. generous, foamy head, which holds on well. solid malt flavor, nice and clean, with some hop flavor, but not exceedingly bitter. solid medium body. the aftertaste has a lingering hop-juice flavor, which isnít really my thing. all in all, a very good american pale ale.

Narnad (1513) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours a very clean straw color with a dense, white foamy head. Aroma has a good dose of lemon and grapefruit with a modest amount of pale malt in the background. Flavor is pretty hoppy for a light alcohol brew. Notes of lemon and light grapefruit, some light tropical fruit late in the tasting. Malt is there but not a focal point of the brew and adds a light sweetness to it late. Body is very light with some light fizzy feel. Overall a pretty tasty beer. No overbearing flavors and pretty well balanced.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a a clear pale lemon yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has earthy grapefruit and grass with a light grain note. Flavor has grapefruit and sweet grass with a bit of earthy grains underlying.

Extra from rxeight. Thanks, Al! Huge juicy citrus nose...like peeling an orange...and some grassiness. Very clean and smooth just great balance. Terrific sessioner.

Fantastic APA! It pours a straw color with very little head, but good lacing. The nose is dry, crisp and spicy. The flavors are very well-balanced with bright and crisp hops and some nice bready malts. The finish is dry and spicy. Lots of grassy and floral hops.

12 ounce can in a shaker glass. Clear yellow color, fizzy, abundant fluffy foam.. Melons and lime in the aroma. Tastes grassy, lots of tropical fruit, juicy hops, refreshing. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. This is a safe bet to share with others that the masses will enjoy, and itís one of the better beers Iíve had from Two Brothers.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head...brigh...decent lacing. Very citrusy aroma...pineapple. flavor follows suit and adds a lot of earthy straw notes...grainy. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and earthy/bitter.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Really tasty (I)PA. citrius, hops, medium body, perfectly balanced. Light enough to session, but still incredibly flavorful. Not on the same level as my favorite (Zombid Dust) but close. Well done 2 Brothers.

Edit to say Iíve had this a lot over the last year. Possibly more than any other. Well maybe not as much as zombie dust, but a lot. And Iím going to say that this is one of the best all around beers. No there are other that might taste a bit better. But this is close. But this wins on price and availability. Itís also something you could drink just about whenever. There are a lot of times Iím not in the mood for a bourbon stout. Or donít want to open a whale. Or need something easier to drink than a 400 ibu dipa. This is easy to drink. Is not pretentious. Enjoyable and refreshing. A 5 tool utility player.
