Average aroma of hops....mostly floral....hint of alcohol. Amber in color....darker than anticipated...tan head. First taste is a mixture of very sweet malt and hop bitterness. Malt is stronger than bitterness until the finish. Finish is a bit too long and overpowering. djroehler (292) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle, Willamette. Pour is golden to amber with thin white head. Aroma is floral hop with some grain. Taste is floral and grapefruit hops, roasted grain character. jmgreenuk (10325) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 17, 2013

Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber, decent head and retention. Nose is a big dose of floral hops, orange peel maltiness hiding behind it. Mouth is a decent bouquet of hoppy bitterness until the grainy malts kick in (typical of Two Bros.) and ruin an otherwise worthy effort. Awktoberfest (415) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Need more aroma and hop taste...beautiful appearance though..................

Poured on tap into a pint glass. Nice head with citrus and pine aroma. Typical bitterness of an ipa. Has a stale aftertaste that hangs around after each sip. ThreeCats (1011) - ISRAEL - JUN 18, 2013
Nice sticky head over hazy amber body. Aroma of pine, grass, and oxidation. Taste of upfront bitterness and very oxidized. Full bodied and fairly clean otherwise. Palate not as bitter as expected, but that might be an age thing.
