Served in a tumbler at Mundelein Brewfest 2014.

Shuffling over to Two Brothers for another black IPA (of sorts, anyway). This one pours a clear dark sienna topped by a finger of wan khaki foam. The nose comprises cocoa powder, pine resin, light candied orange peel, and a hint of treacle. The taste brings in more of the same, the hops breaking through the roast and treacle fog every now and again with a sharp citrus-y edge. Things don't quite mesh completely, but there isn't much full clashing going on, either. It's a strange place to be. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a nice enough little beer, though not something I see myself partaking in very much in the future.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy dark amber topped off by a thick, slightly off white head that rose about three fingers tall.

Smell: The scent was reminiscent of carmel and toasted nuts, but with a hint of gain sweetness as well.

Taste: Quite impressive. There's a very good balance of the sharpness characteristic of wheat beers and a very acidic citrus flavor backing up the hops. Excellent contrast and complexity.

Mouthfeel: Thicker than what I was expecting from a wheat beer. It coats the mouth and tongue and lingers for a while. Amazing.

Overall: Very, very good. Thick mouthfeel, which I love, and a very citrusy, hoppy backbone offset with a luscious caramel sweetness. This is just a wonderful beer.
