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.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Best by 4/11/15.

A - Dark bronze with a 1 finger eggshell head. Fades and leaves behind spotty lacing.

S - Rather sweet like caramel and palm sugar with some burnt aromas. The hops and rye give it a added scent.

T - Earthy with the spicy rye and bitter hops. Some roasted maltiness to go along with the palm sugar and caramel sweetness.

M - Medium feel with a creamy finish and good carbonation. Dry and spicy finish.

O - An excellent red rye that has a flavorful malty backbone.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date 04/11/2015 printed on the back label. A new one to me from Two Brothers, out of Warrenville, acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Jewel.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a reddish-brown body, with hues of rust orange when in the glass. About a finger of frothy tan head that falls quickly. Leaves lots of sticky scattered lacing behind on the glass. Looks nice for what it is.

S - A pleasant and fruity aroma. Spicy grainy rye malt makes it's initial appearance, followed by lots of jammy / orangey / piney hops. A creamy sweetness imparted from the Thai palm sugar.

T - Bready rye malt with a touch of caramel, and lots of bitter resinous hops. Pine, orange, grapefruit. In all honesty, it seems a bit bland to me. Flavorful, to be sure, but there isn't much going on here to keep me interested. I'm giving it the 4 for quality.

M - The feel is smooth and easy drinking, if even a bit on the watery side of things. Fruity and jammy, with mild hop resins / bitterness lingering on the palate. Very easy-drinking for the moderate 7.00% abv.

Overall, I'm not a very big fan of rye beers to begin with, but this one wasn't terrible, just fairly bland and middle-of-the-road, in my opinion. Easy-drinking, and worth a shot for fans of the style, but it's not something I would return to again often.

Two Brothers Cane And Ebel -----4/5.

Bear Republic's Hop Rod is a solid rival, so if you like it, you'll like this one!
