On tap at Court Jester Aberdeen. Pours light amber with distinct straw nose. Hop and malt notes balance out the bitterness, making 60 ibus truly believable. Be careful!

Drożdżowe i chmielowe w smaku i zapachu, lekkie, gaszące pragnienie, bliżej temu do belgian ale niż do saisona. Dobre na ochłodę po ciężkiej pracy, sam w takich warunkach to piję. Solidne, przyjemne, lekkie piwko.

Pours a red/maroon hinted hazy color with large bubble head foam which disappears quickly......aroma is berries, slight wine note.....taste is tart, face puckering sweetness, sour berry, earth.....tartness disappears in a few gulps but earth remains.

Session IPA is not code of watered down IPA, unfortunately two roads disagrees. I enjoy a nice lite beer but i expect it to still have body and be balanced. This is lacking both, the one pronounced flavor is the hops.

Two Roads Ol’ Factory Pils
Pours a clear light gold with a pillowy head which lingers.....aroma is the smell of an old day tap room, unmistakeable pilsen grain, yeasty notes......taste is thin though mouthfeel is full, quick hit of grain, very, very slight hop note and both disappear quickly and leaving a lingering bitterness. OK pils, not amazing.

Two Roads Honeyspot Road IPA
Can. Tall Boys, Leeds. Hazy, straw colour. Thin, glossy, white head. Nose has floral, lemony hop. Bit of an Earl Grey tea thing going on. A bit of lemon balm. Taste is light, and floral sweet. Moderate bitterness. Soft, soapy mouthfeel. Light bitter finish. Other than the soapy, floral thing, there’s not a deal going on with this.

Two Roads Espressway Cold Brew Coffee Stout
Draft at The Grog, Newburyport, MA. Aroma has a great dry roasted nose of chocolate and ground coffee beans.

Flavor has a nice roasted espresso bean right up front. Nice thicker \ fuller body for a under 7 % ABV stout. Oats give a chewy mouthfeel. Nice layers of dark malts and coffee with a creamy texture. Good for where this cam from.

Two Roads Ol’ Factory Pils
Sampled from a can. Clear, light gold with a white head. Fairly standard lager, with a decent delicate flavour with hints of citrus. Not sweet, which is a bonus, and a nice dry finish. Light in body and taste. Not very memorable and nothing like as good as well-made German Pilsner.

Awesome double! Beautiful hop and malt taste with the hoppiness leveling out and a tingling alcohol burn. This is really easy to drink, and being an 8% makes it a dangerous one! :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the can stamped 06/03/16. Olive-yellow pour with a quick head. Nice aroma of toasted wheat, toasted biscuit, and grassy hops. The body is light to medium but smooth. The taste starts out with a wheat-like toastiness and then there is an orange like juiciness in the mix. Clean, crisp finish.

16 oz can, poured yellow light haziness and thin head into a mug. Sour beer is not my favorite style but I found myself continuing to drink and finish this subtly enjoyable beer. Tartness and lemon dominates with a hint of the kelp and a subtle hint of the salt (but honestly so subtle not sure I would've noticed but for the description on the label). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Two Roads Honeyspot Road IPA
DATE: July 9, 2016... OCCASION: Celebrating our family’s reunion... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... quite hazy, bubbly, sallow yellow body that sports a creamy snow white head that builds into small coral mountains... lemon and bright citrus offer a thin, singular aroma... light hay and honey mingle as secondary scents... the body is without weight, a rinsing, cleansing, thin body that refreshes with a dry finish.... not much of an experience, outside of its swift finish... the lemon is its most overt offering... otherwise, a nondescript softly hopped ale that drains easily and encourages seconds and thirds... slightly high alcohol for its profile... tough for me to sing its praises or curse its shortcomings...

Smells of sweet malts floral scents and a touch to the nostils of lemon zest. Slight haze yellow color with finger and a half white head that tends to last. Some floral flavors like grass and wood with some citrus on the back note that tend to linger on the tougue. Light body with zesty crisp carbonation. Nice refreshing pilsner. Nice work.

Wow...something good finally has come out of Connecticut. Murky yellow with a dense and growing white head. Aroma is whispy, id hoped for more. A solid pilsener. Stands alone or pairs well with lunch. Will have to look this place up if I ever dare to cross the border into wierdoland.

A bit of clove, wheat malts and slight hint of banana. Slightly hazy golden color with two finger head that dies quickly. Sweet wheat taste with clove and something else I can’t put my tougue of, quite spicy at the end. Med body with low to no carbonation. Not that great but drinkable ok.

Two Roads Road Jam
DATE: July 6, 2016... OCCASION: a hot afternoon in need of a chill....GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... pours an opaque, ruby/purplish red that shows slight bubbles streaming upwards... a single finger of pure white head settles, with lily pad clusters on the surface... raspberries struggle with yeasty astringency for dominance; faint citrus suggests lemon or orange--not really engaging... lively and bubbly, while light and refreshing--a pleasure on a hot evening such as this... tart, almost sour to the point of puckering the lips; the raspberries and blueberries are big like a lambic, but the lemon and wheat cut the profile into a sessionable--though burp-inducing-- appertif... at 5% ABV, a nice evening starter that fits a certain atmosphere... not the best or worst of the tart, berried beers available, but its softness invites more sips than others, and the drinkability is winning... thus, the sum of this beer is greater than its parts...

Two Roads / Evil Twin Geyser Gose
Robe jaune et mousse blanche qui fond deux ou trois minutes plus tard. Ses parfums de sel, de lime et d’herbes sont agréables et accompagnent bien les vents chauds qui me soufflent dans le cou. Ses saveurs de blé suret et de 7 Up salé sont bien intéressantes et plaisent instantanément à mes papilles qui ont soif en tabouère. Le corps léger n’est jamais aqueux mais bien pétillant. En finale, zeste de citron et de lime avec une touche fine de sel. Une grosse canette rapidement vidée de son contenu par ma bouche qui rote avec élégance après chaque lampée.

Two Roads Lil’ Heaven
Acclaimed ISA from Connecticut, launched in 2013 when the Azacca hop variety hadn’t even received its common name yet. Moussy, dense, beaten egg-like head leaving some patches of lacing, dissolving gradually but retaining well on the edges and in the middle; misty peach blonde with a haze of tiny dead yeast bits throughout; this can is already a bit too old, I’m afraid. Still quite a lot of aromatic New World hop fragrance, though: aromas of lemon blossom, bilimbi fruit (probably the Equinox), marihuana, cedar resin (the Mosaic?), unripe mango, green banana peel, lemon-scented soap, overripe yellow kiwi, exotic pepper, wry grape peel, bitterroot, damp cigarette tobacco, dry cookies, hint of sweat but in a good way. Crisp, cleanly fruity onset with accents of unripe banana, bitter melon, kiwi and lime, restrainedly sweetish but nowhere actually sweet, balanced by soft underlying sourishness and onsetting hop bitterness; soft carbonation, lean and supple, bit oily mouthfeel, lightly bready malt background upon which the hop character intensifies, leading to a dry, aromatically hoppy finish producing long-lasting bitterness, but not in an overly harsh way; it is a slightly earthy, resinous bitterness, grapefruit peel-like, paired with elegant unripe tropical fruit and slight pine and floral aromas retronasally. Juicy finish, in which the breadiness, accentuated by the suspended yeast, pairs well with this resinous, lasting bitterness. Very refreshing and almost ’cute’ little IPA, with a delicate and elegant hop bouquet stealing the show, but still built on a light yet notably bready malt base. Flirts with the 5% ABV border so does not feel too thin in comparison with many lighter ISAs - this is, in fact, nearly a standard IPA, and indeed a ’crushable’ one as the can says. Probably a tad too old already: I’m sure this will be even more fragrant when young. As with many well-made examples of this new substyle, first and foremost a thirst quencher packed with exotic hop aromas - I still do not understand why session IPAs have so far failed to conquer more market space and exterminate standard pale lager as ’daily’ quenchers, but I’m dreaming now...

Two Roads / Evil Twin Geyser Gose
16 ounce can
When Evil Twin is involved with anything it usually ends well. This world class gose is no exception. I think sea salt might be one of my favorite ingredients in sessionable sours when done right. As long as people don’t try to jam it into IPAs, stouts, or other styles let everyone have at it.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy golden base shimmers with a light carbonation. A soft snowy head bobs up and down with ease. Sea salt, lemon, and a light tartness nip at the air with the eagerness of a young puppy.

Flavor / Palate - The rim of a salted glass opens with a bang that yields to a lemony fluid core. The refreshing finish tickles the throat, raises expectations for the next sip, and then ends on a high note. As a picnic beer I can’t think of many better options for a warm summer afternoon.

12 oz. bottle. Dark amber body with slight head. Nose is nuts, toasted grain, molasses, figs.

Flavor also malts, caramel, some dark fruit hints. Some dark bread note, decent yeast backbone. Bitter in the finish. But quite sweet but not sugary. It does show a mild bitterness. More balanced then I was guessing. This is actually rather good.

Two Roads Framboise Noir
Bottle shared 6/10/16.
Blood red appearance with deep crimson and magenta tints. Moderate clarity with a violet-flecked, light-beige head that is small but dense and shows moderately-strong retention.
Huge raspberry jam nose is dotted with black pepper-like raspberry seed notes and a good deal of vanilla-honey character from the malt. Juicy/jammy to the max and with moderate acidity but mostly from the raspberries. Not a whole lot of yeast/bacteria quality at this point. No alcohol or flaw.
The jam translates completely in to the mouth and it’s rather thick, sluggish and sweet for this style of beer. Not that it’s problematic, really, and it’s pretty obvious they have purposefully made a beer that will age marvelously; drying out and growing much more funky. It begs the question, "Why didn’t they age it longer in-house before releasing it?". Personally, I’m not a fan of it currently, but I could see some people liking the lack of sourness and huge fruit character so I don’t think it’s any affront to beer geeks to release it this young. Of course, this all assumes it does dry out considerably and gains a lot more funk. As is, this is a score for its current state and I will definitely make a point to revisit in a few years.
