3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
I like this a lot. Iím a bit wary of Two Brothers new beers, as most Iíve tried of late havenít really been all that good. If you approach this one for what it seems to be aiming for, itís excellent. Very "light" and very drinkable. Would be an excellent session beer - if thatís your thing. Hop aroma and taste is citrusy, which is my favorite. My favorite Two Brothers is Cane and Ebel, but if they make Sidekick on a regular basis, Iíll add it as my second favorite TB beer.

This stuff is good. Two Brotherís didnít let the light color and relatively low gravity stop them from giving this a huge hop aroma. I might guess citra is involved somewhow but whatever hops they used to finish lent a good bit of peach character along w/ the usual citrus and pine. This is a lighter beer very much on the drinkable side. My two complaints are that it doesnít really have enough bitterness in the finish and is a bit undercarbonated for the style which makes it come off as water. If this were either a little more bitter or a little more spritzy, I think itíd be great.

Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured golden and clear. Nice hop aroma and taste for this solid pale ale.

Having out of a can record a golden yellow clear you, with a slight But lasting head and slight lacing. The aroma was a fantastic citrus hop, the taste was a hoppy citrus flavor.

One of the best pale ales I have had. Nice and citrusy with a nice kick of hops. Pours like a wheat beer, very yellow with a white head. Goo out of a can as well

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Poured into the glass with a darker yellow color and a short duration head. Malt was a light grain followed by the spruce and citrus hop load you expect from an APA. The hops bordered on a "chewy" citrus theme. This would be a good hot weather brew, and I recommend it. 2-Bros. seems to always deliver a good product.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12oz can. My can is more lime-green colored, vs the yellow one pictured. Swirl by: 07/25/13 (believe in the swirl). Nice citrusy hop aroma fills my nose as I flick the tab open on the can. Clear yellow color. Big white head. Decent airy lace. Citrus, some lime in the aroma. Passion fruit, that makes sense. Little floral, light grass. Just a light breadiness. Way different from Two Brothersí other pale ale, Bitter End... Way less caramel malt here, and more fresh citrusy hop, from what I remember. I think this is a great improvement. Then again, this labels itself as an "Extra Pale Ale". What does that mean? From this example, seems like itís lighter-colored than most pale ales, much more pale yellow, and a less pronounced malt profile. Lighter-medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Light bitter taste. The big, fresh hops are cool, as well as the minimal malt. The body seems to be lacking something, though. A couple new citrus-hoppy pale ales have been coming out lately, the most recent Iíve tried that comes to mind is Southern Tierís Live. This is still enjoyable and easy drinking. But Live seemed a little more well-rounded compared to this one.

Can. Pale clear yellow pour with a white head. Nice pineapple aroma and a similar taste with the citrus/pineapple elements. Lighter palate and it finishes really clean - almost uneventful actually. Solid summer beer.
