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.

Color is caramel with red garnet highlights. Exceptional head and thick lacing combine for an impressive presentation.

Musty but somewhat citrus hop aroma leads to spicy rye and faint malt.

Taste starts with a piney/citrus hop burst leading into the spicy rye then mellows to a malt backdrop. Balanced, complex and highly enjoyable. Pepper and pine, citrus and dry malt.

Mouthfeel is creamy and slightly dry and medium body. Spot on carbonation. Very nice.

This beer goes down fast for a 7% abv. It hits the spot on a cold rainy evening. Two Brothers use of rye is the best I have had as they did not over do it while creating a unique and tasty brew. Cheers!

At first, it seemed all hops all the time on the nose, with a strong resiny aroma...however, as it opens up, the palm sugar is noticeable with a small sweetness and a note of spicy rye. It's a good nose.

Initially, it has a really good and firm floral/piney bitter snap to it...comes across just like an IPA to me. Then, the slight spiciness of the rye is evident although not as much so as many other rye beers so I don't believe it's quite as prominent in the making of this beer...although still present. On the finish, the palm sugar provides a small sweetness that seems more evident as it warms and helps the beer wrap up on a pretty solid mix of resin and sugar.

All in all, very very tasty. I just wish it wasn't so expensive and hard to find!

Consumed September 15th, 2012. Bottle labeled "best by 5/8/12". Oops!

Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Adams "perfect pint" glass. A creamy, fine one-finger head of off-white appears and sticks around a good long time. Excellent sheeting. Mostly clear orange/copper colored brew has copious lazy bubbles rising throughout.

Notes of rye and citrus (orange and grapefruit) in the restrained nose.

Flavor is subtle and somewhat complex. Rye bread notes lead off with a bit of spice. Just barely more sweet than not. Clean hop notes on finish: grassy and lightly citric with only a touch of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. Slight carbonation prickle. Finishes ever-so-slightly dry.

Pretty drinkable due to the combination of smooth, clean mouthfeel and well-blended flavors. The ABV should give one pause to having more than a couple of these on a hot afternoon, though, as the alcohol is not present in the flavor at all.

Since the beer is well past its expiration date, I can imagine that the hop presence must be more pronounced in a fresher example. As it stands, though, this expired sample was fine drinking anyway.

A nice hard pour from a bottle into a pint glass makes this come out looking fantastic. Root beer colored ale with red and orange tints throughout. A nice one finger head that recedes into a small layer of foam and leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. Smooth in the mouth but not as "hopped up" as the bottle claims. Malty and rich, a nice rye ale for sure. I was expecting more hoppiness so I am a bit let down on that end, but if they hadn't advertised as "hopped up" I'd be more than pleased with this one.

Overall, something I am absolutely looking forward to getting more of. I have not had all that much from 2 Bros yet, but have really liked what I've tasted so far.

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Dark brown with a reddish hue. A little cloudy with a thick one inch head that leaves fantastic lacing.

S- Wonderful hop aroma with a strong hint of the rye and thai palm sugar. Very complex. Great nose.

T- Wow. What a great tasting mixture of hops and rye along with the thai palm sugar and malt. Perfectly balanced. It leaves very pleasant bitterness that lingers very well.

M- The pleasant bitterness starts at the back of the palate, then fills the entire palate, ending in a perfectly balanced aftertaste.

O- Outstanding. World class. One of the best beers one could find anywhere... in my humble opinion.
