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.

I really like this brew. It is a great session beer. First the aroma I get is lemon lime. Appearance once it was out of the can was a lot lighter than I would have thought. It is almost the same color as sparkling apple juice. Taste I get is lemon. It rolls across the palate and is nice and smooth and easy to drink. Overall I think this is a pretty tasty beer. I donít buy the same beer twice often but I did with this one.

Nice change of pace. Great aroma of pineapple, mango maybe banana. This pours (from bottle) with nice clean lightly colored camel color and forms a nice 1 1/2 finger head. When tasting all the aroma flavors come to play with a slight bitter note and then turns to a light y sweet malty flavor. Very nice balance of hops and malt.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2013 Typical fresh citrus and fruit aroma that makes you wanna take a big gulp. Medium hoppy flavor with hints of tropical fruit. Light hop aftertaste. Medium light. Delicious and refreshing.

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.

Light golden color. Fluffy head. Very hoppy citrusy aroma. Smooth flavor with slight maltiness. Very hoppy. Notes of tropical fruit. Clean finish. A lawnmower beer for hopheads.

Nice hoppy citrus pale ale. Clean and refreshing. Slightly bitter but with a very pleasant fruity hop feel that dissipates quickly leaving you reaching for more. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Can pour..light golden color with 1 finger worth head..aroma is indeed passion fruit as stated on can with a burst of honeydew..cantaloupe and other fruits..light bodied yet full of bursting citrus qualities that manages to have an amazingly dry finish..this is a fine pale ale that is quite balanced between the hops and malt action..really pleased to be able to get this and clearly worth seeking out..

Pours a hazy paler golden with a tall rocky eggshell head that settles slowly and leaves some fluffy, intricate lace. Nose involves intense pine, light tropical fruit, orange and grapefruit, with some crackery malt. Fairly sweet, a bit more bitter. Lighter body, oily, fairly active, with a drying bitter hop finish. Awesome brew, just hits everything out of the park as far as hoppy session brews go.
