3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pint at Standard Market. $4! A cloudy, yellowish brown, somewhat accentuated by the yellow from the Two Brothers logo on the tumbler they served it in thin foam ring. Hoppy smell of Amarillos or their kin. Taste is big big big on hops; mostly pine needles and resin, delivering its primary blast to the back half of the mouth. Not really a Double IPA, just a hopped up one. Served a little too cold, but maybe I don’t want to be there when it warms up. Then there’s a smooth, just slightly sweet and nutty malt bill to keep this beer in its cage. A gobstopping beer experience.
22 oz bottle from Binny’s South Loop from notes. Pours a color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bready malts, light caramel, piney hops, citrus, moderate bitterness, decent enough. Niko100 (2994) - Chicago, New York, USA - APR 7, 2016

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, caramel, and citrus. Taste juicy hops, pine, and citrus. There is also a strong caramel taste. Long lingering hop bitterness. Light bodied, without being thin. Drinks real easy. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

On tap, poured into a shaker. Grapefruit and pine aromas come through with orange notes late. Hazy bronze-orange colored beer is topped by a soft, dense, white foam head that reduces to a medium thick ring, with a fuzzy surface and a messy, runny lace (only a bit sticks). The taste is a medium / medium-high bitter and medium sweet. It’s smooth with a creamy carbonation. Thr medium full body has flavors of sweet orange, and some bread crust upfront with grassy pine and ctirus rind bitter at it’s finish. It’s astringent with flavors of pine and grapefrruit rind lingering. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2014

Tap at the taproom. Orange pour with a white frothy head. Big citrus hop nose with a bit of pine / dank. Juicy taste. Lively palate. Excellent. Tmoney99 (14968) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spruce and citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations. wlajwl (7066) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 20, 2014
Aroma is citrus, toffee and a background of spices and bread. The flavor is citrus, relatively strong fruit/raspberries, malts, mild sweetness and a dry/tart/bitter finish.
