3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours clear, dark, amber with a thick beige head that recedes to heavy lace. Nose is nice caramel malt with some grapefruit hops and fresh red apple. The flavors are very well balanced with hops, malt, and fruitiness coming through equally. The apple flavor is rather strong and very unique to and IPA for me. The body is medium plus with average carbonation and a long apple and bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Bottle. Hops, sweet malts, and oak come out. Notes of pepper, citrus, and whiskey stand out. Palate is smooth. Flavor brings out oak, finishing with a nice bitter hoppy bite. One of the best oak aged ipas I have had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonus 22oz after a PtY trade - thanks John! Pours a pretty golden orange with minimal head that disappears quickly. Nose is full of juicy citric hops, light wood, apple juice and sweet malt. Flavor is very much the same, though the wood steals some of the hoppy brightness. Flatness makes the whole thing a mite sweeter than I prefer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to zdk9 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the orange and pine hops. The flavor is more of the same with orange and resiny hops with some oaked notes. The hop profile is heavier on the citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This was my first Two Brothers beer and I hope to try more from them in the future.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a short, creamy, bubbly off-white head. Aroma of hops, strawberries, and oak. Tastes slightly bitter with lots of bubbles and a smooth texture. Flavor is hard to place with lots of hops, resin, bread malts, strawberry, and alcohol. Pretty smooth overall, but I wish it was in a 12oz rather than 22oz, cause that is a lot of thick beer to drink at once.

Bottle. My style so I really liked it. Golden Amber, cloudy, nice light creamy tan head and some lacing. Plenty of malts and aromatic hops just to that cliff edge.
