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.

From 12-oz can pours a clear light golden pale colored brew with an average sized head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of both grassy and citrus/grapefruit hops, a hint of lemon zest and golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, moderate carbonation with all the grassy and citrus hop flavor of an IPA without the heavy bitterness. There is more golden grain malt detected in flavor than aroma. Finish has a short-lived citrus hop aftertaste followed by a crisp mild grassy hop aftertaste. A sessional soft IPA profile in a pale ale style is the best way to describe this.

12oz can poured into pint glass. Clear golden color. Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Great hop forward taste, smooth finish. I will be picking up a sixer to try at home. Great addition to the Two Bros lineup.

Enjoyed on tap at Rockwell's in Chicago, IL. Appearance is a bright pale yellow, cloudy, with a rich white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light citrus, smells like something to enjoy on a nice warm day. Taste goes down nice and crisp, light bitterness, a nice easy drinker, like a calmer Daisy Cutter. I like this one.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Can from Binnyís Downtown. I think this is accurately described as a session American Pale Ale. Lower ABV and slightly lighter corresponding body and flavor. Easy drinking with solid bitterness. Good.

Abv was listed at 7 for the draft version. It is a light beer with a bisuity and honey like delivery. Hops are acidic with a light citrus.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Clear gold with good, creamy, white head / Little skunk on the nose of weed, pine, citrus / Medium body, soft carbonation, some sweetness with mellow hops, and lightly bitter finish / Again, some peculiar, manure-like flavor over muted, candied pineapple/grapefruit, lemon, biscuit, pine / Something is amiss. Possible to get a bad can?

Pours as clear a golden as can be, and has a two finger sized head that dissipates into a cap. Leaves a lot of lacing, and has a ton of carbonation. Has aromas of grapefruit and citrus, and they are very strong. Mildly bitter on the tongue, and goes down very smooth. A very nice, easy drinking session beer, but nothing more.

Tortman18 (183) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
12oz. can. Pours a clear golden with a lot of carbonation. has a finger and a half of white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a small amount of lacing. Nose is extremely hoppy with citrus and grapefruit. Very pleasent. Taste has a nice hop bite, not nearly as strong as the hops on the nose. A mellow citrus bite follows. A great medium bodied, session beer. The best beer from Two Brothers Iíve had.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a clear and carbonated yellowish golden with a thin white head. Aroma is heavy in citrus with a malt balance. It includes grapefruit, melon, mango, and pineapple. There is a strong amount of caramel malt that is easily noticeable. The taste is dominant in the citrus areas. Grapefruit and pineapple dominate. I find some lemon as well. The malty impressions take a backseat in the flavor department, but that is alright. More on the dry side. Strong grapefruit aftertaste lasts awhile. Medium bodied, thin in texture, with a lively amount of carbonation. This is very refreshing and easy to drink. Iím quite impressed with this one. This will be perfect for warm weather or a summer afternoon. I could drink this all day.
