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.

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.

Really great Pale Ale! Has to be one of the top ten I've had. Does everything an APA is supposed to do; which in my opinion is to come as close to an IPA as possible without being an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer pours a nice golden color and is very clear. A decent one and a half finger white frothy head sticks around for some time. Decent lacing on the glass. The nose is big juicy citrus. Big orange, a little lemony with grapefruit and a slight hint of pine. I may be noticing the passion fruit, but am not 100% sure. A nice front of the tongue carbonation pop opens up to a nice citrus bitterness in the middle of the tongue, nice drying bitterness. Finishes with a nice mild grapefruit bitterness that lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but the beer is a 5.1% beer, canít ask for everything. Excellent drinking pale ale. Very good!

On tap at the brewery, meaning it may a bit different than from the can, what? Light color, thin head. A fruity hop smell with notes of pine, the usual. Taste has that strong ícatboxí smell I always equate with my first Amarillo hopped beer (Gumballhead). But Iím told itís from a dry hop with Citra. Otherwise, has a bit of a stone fruit note and more resin. And, somehow, pine wood. Yeah, Iím describing hops instead of malt here.

Mild aroma and a basic, big head pour lead to a smooth, balanced taste and comfortable mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
