COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ben4321 (3859) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Location: Draft at Haymarket, 5/28/14

Aroma: The nose is solid, some fruity hops, grass, and a bit of spice
Appearance: Pours an unclear orange-gold color with a thin beige/off-white head
Flavor: Tastes similarly, with clean hoppy flavors, fruity, leans hoppy, solidly balanced though
Palate: The body is light-medium, pretty easy drinking and sessionable brew
Overall Impression: Another solid offering from Two Brothers. Looks like this one is canned, which makes sense, as this feels like a good canned beer. Liked it.

Can @ the Dukes. Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma is super fresh melon, kiwi, cantaloupe, guava, loads of tropical fruit hop, some grass & pee. Flavor is light melon, citrus, grass hop, light malt. Light bright and crisp, finishes with lightly bitter hop.

Bright yellow in color, pretty clear, very airy and spritsy, with practically no head, this beer looks every part light and refreshing. It could easily play the part of a tropical beach refreshment. The nose is sweet and grainy with some earthy, citrusy notes. It’s really light, refreshing, and fruity, and the flavor is just as delightful. It’s smooth, wet, and clean - a great palate cleanser! What a great hop profile for such a light beer!

Can, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a nice hazy pale straw color with a fluffy white head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is hop forward, really grassy with some nice tropical fruit. Simple but very inviting for sure.

The flavor is pretty nice, way over-run by juicy hops with a touch of floral bitterness. Generally it’s a pretty cool low bitterness/low sweetness pale ale... that said there is a touch of sweetness up front. Other than that it’s lots of citrus, passion fruit, & melon.

Geeze, this is way way better than the Outlaw stuff.
