3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another solid effort by Two Brothers. Aroma is of citrus and floral with some slight apricot and maybe some honeysuckle. Taste is great. Some hops, but not overwhelming and certainly not bitter like the name might suggest. Taste is very floral and citrus forward and has some fruit like apricot and maybe kiwi. Pours with a nice thick head that leaves some moderate lacing. It goes down pretty smoothly.

12 oz bottle, from the Costco variety pack. darker yellow orange color. medium bitter, not enough to be called "bitter end" Says three hop but I detect a lot of citra in this, especially when fresh. In the highly competitive american IPA race, this one is slightly ahead of the mid pack.

pour is light copperish amber with a white head and some larger bubbles. Nose is a fair amount of orange citrus and resinous hop. Taste is hop forward, apricot and citrus, lightly resinous, syrupy body and light carbonation. Finish is a touch flat.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle served in a Great Lakes Brewing shaker pint. Best by date of 2/19/2012.
A: Pours a nice amber color with solid golden edges. A one and a half finger head forms on the pour that sticks around for quite sometime and leaves some nice cascades of lace.
S: The smell is that of a typical APA. Pale biscuit malts, some light citrus zest and dried rinds with a little bit of grassy, hay-like hops.
T: The is spot on with some bready malts, lemon zest, grassy hops and a subtle sweetness on the finish.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice lively carbonation. I would like the flavors to linger around a tad longer, but itís hard to ask that from an APA.
O: This was probably the most balanced beer Iíve had from Two Brothers and overall the most solid. It was refreshing and it had a nice drinkability.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks zvikar. Hazy orange. Fruity and somewhat funky aroma with a bit of olives and some citric hops. Sourish flavor with light sweetness, some malt and a bitter hoppy finish. Light to medium-bodied. Maybe a bit infected, but still enjoyable.

Mild for a PA. But tastes better than its aroma and color implies. Pretty good mild alternative to others.
