A: good thick head, great lacing on glass.
S: pine resin, nectarine, and pineapple among others. Wow.
T: the nose doesn't lie, very juicy tropical like flavors, with the pine more in the background.
M: it's got a medium body. Nice feel.
O: GREAT new beer from a CT brewery. Great balance, flavors, and aroma. This beer can hang with the big boys from the east to the west. I'm proud. Very proud.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.
a: Nearly clear amber with a finger thick white head which receded slowly to thick surface foam and dense lacing.
s; Moderate to intense citrus and pine.
t: Strong citrus to resin hop bite over a nice smooth malt base. Bitterness stings the sides of the tongue. Dry to bitter finish.
m: Moderate to full with great body. Very smooth, approaching silky.
o: A really fine DIPA with everything going for it. As good as almost any of the far more popular versions out there. My first Two Roads will not be my last.

Gift from a good friend. Thanks C-Rad.
Dark copper color with off white head.
Aroma is amazing. Piney resinous oily goodness. Grapefruit citrus acidity with an overwhelming bloom.
Taste is bitter going in and bitter on the back end (undersides of the tongue). Malt to balance, but it is really a bitter brew. Boozy but not too intense. Tasty.
Mouthfeel is right on. Full and sharp.
Outstanding beer. Everything I look for in an IPA.

Amidst picking up supplies for the snow storm we're having in CT, I decided to also stock up on some brews. My local package store just put this out on the shelves and the labeling caught my eye, enough for me to read the packaging. Saw they made a double IPA and CT brewed so I had to give it a try, glad I did. Here's the review:
Poured from the bottle into my nonic pint glass. Upon opening the bottle I could immediately detect that wonderful piney, citrusy aroma. The pour left a slight off white head that produced some thick lacing down the side of the glass.
Smell - They hit the nail on the head for the Aroma - Very complex, a lot of deep pine, citrus and grapefruit resins.
Taste - The taste follows through with the nose - the hops balance out the malt, which isn't overly sweet and has a nice hop bite with a dry finish. The Flavors coat the palate quite nicely!
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation for the style. The carbonation brings out the flavor and bitterness quite well.
Overall - There's only certain CT breweries I'll purchase beer from, and now Two Roads Brewing is my next favorite. What you have here, folks, is a solid IPA. I could imagine sitting down and having a few of these. It's going very well with the snowfall that we're having and the ABV provides some nice warming notes to ward off the chills.
