Notes/Commercial Description:
Dry, but with a creamy touch of Thai Palm Sugar and the spicy tang of Rye, all balanced by loads of the wackiest new Hops we could lay our hands on. Yep, it’s an Orignal. And that’s no Sin.

4.6/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: This beer pours a beautiful mahogany brown with garnet highlights. There is a slight but present fluffy white head that settles to a nice thin lacing.

Smell: This beer has a pleasant rich brown sugar sweetness that is forward on the nose followed by a mellow floral spice. I smell fresh cut grass, fresh zested oranges along with earth components like tree bark and moss. There is a definite bready, grainy malt character hiding in the background. It reminds me of fresh cooked waffles on Sunday morning.

Taste: This beer is forward with a nice chewy bread crust and cereal grain flavors. This malt is paired with a slightly fruit sweetness like fresh boiled cranberries, apricot and tart grapefruit. This is followed by a combo of peppery spice from the rye and floral, citrusy (lemon, orange) spice from traditional American hops. There is definitely a lingering bitterness, but it is not shocking to your palette or overpowering at all.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a medium body, but a wonderfully dry finish making it both bold and fantastically thirst quenching.

Drinkability: I could easily sit back and drink many of these throughout the evening either paired with food or on it's own. At 68 IBU's and 7 ABV it could definitely get me in trouble. ;)

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This beer is definitely my favorite that Two Brother's has to offer. It has a uniqueness from the Rye and Palm sugar that is showcased in the beer. It's really a unique take on an American Rye Ale by blending the peppery spicyness of Rye with the sweet citrus spice of American hops. It's a definite must try beer in my opinion.
