The Irritated Koala is one heck of an interesting beer. The beer poured a dark clear amber with white head. The scent had smoke, piney hops and slight tea presence. The taste was smoke in the front and back with piney hops in the middle. The mouthfeel was light to medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this was an interesting offering....but it would be tough to drink more than one of these at a sitting in my opinion. Definitely worth a try!

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new bomber from Two Brothers, this one a proclaimed 'smoked tea black IPA'. Not entirely sure what to expect. The label tells us that this beer is brewed with Lapsang Souchong, a smoked black tea.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a dark reddish mahogany colored body; more of a dark red ale than a black ale in appearance. Two fingers of frothy fluffy off-white head that leaves some nice thin lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S - The smell is a little faint, but the smoke / char / wood / licorice character seems most dominant. Some earthy piney hops & bready caramel malts buried beneath that.

T - The taste follows the nose - lightly smokey / char, earthy piney / grapefruit hops, and some bready malt.

M - The feel is smooth, fluid, and creamy. Medium-light bodied, with good carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall, a unique approach at a smoked beer / IPA hybrid type beer, but I'm not entirely sure "black IPA" is the right descriptor. Either way, the beer gets props for uniqueness, and good drinkability. Well worth the try.

Two Brothers Irritated Koala ---4/5.
