On tap at Sheffield’s in Chicago. Clear reddish appearance with a lacy beige head. Resinous hops, piney, bitter and boozy. A little over the top. hotstuff (5143) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Rated on 12-14-2015 (Bottle) The appearance of this beer is a medium sized ivory head with a lengthy retention, transparent copper body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma citrus, sweet, earthy, caramel malt, and toasted. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus, sweet, spicy, caramel malt, syrupy, and light pine. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, a very quaffable beer that has a spicy and hop aftertaste. This is a good sipping beer that has an alcohol in the finish. It is a beer that is worth trying and a beer that I would partake in again. markducommun (1096) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Clear, red mahogany. Minimal light tan head. Caramel. Light vanilla. Bitter, sweet. Medium body, not much effervescence. Good. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle at the Lincoln WIne Bar. I haven’t loved Two Brothers beers too much, but this is really good. Tons of caramel sweetness balanced with a nice hop edge at the end. Strong in flavor with a bit of alcohol warmth. fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Rich and malty body of sweet caramel and charred toffee, finishing with a chalky, funky aftertaste.

Nice foggy amber orange color with a huge pale orange head that fades quickly, tons of lacing. Piney, citrusy aroma with a malt backbone. Sweet flavor, not much bitterness. The label says 124 ibu’s, fooled me. Pretty nice beer! NikkTwist (3193) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Draft at Bierstube. Tulip. Mostly clear dark amber pour with a good amount of off-white foam. Lots of lace. Sweet succulent mix of medium toasted caramel malts and stone fruit with a strong hop bite. Apricot pits. Mandarin peels. Dried dates and figs. Brown sugar candies. Peat. Challah. Autumn leaves. Apple seeds. Wildflower honey. Burnt butterscotch. Artichokes. Dandelions. Crystallized ginger. Passionfruit. Hot peppers. Turpentine. Feels big and syrupy but has enough hops and tannins to make the finish dry and astringent. Deep rich spicy candied varnish.

Sample at Hopfest 2015. Comes reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and pine. Taste is caramel malt, citrus, pine, and alcohol. Interesting. tubafatness (19) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Full, slightly sweet taste with a nice malt finish. STRONG ale, for certain. Has a medium reddish color, with good lacing. Excellent strong ale. ElCapitan22 (361) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours a very nice dark amber/copper color with minimal head retention, but nice lacing. Smells sweet and malty, with a hint of floral notes in the background. Maybe rose? Tastes sweet and malty up front with a nice smooth finish. An outstanding red!
