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 into a snifter.

3.5 A: Two Brothers sure has an interesting take on the color red. This is purplish black. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is lacking, but a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This has a hell of a lot more hop character than rye, but in any case it smells great. Citrusy and floral hops. Just a touch of spicy earthy rye underneath. Toasty malts with minor caramel notes.

2.5 T: The taste is confused. Moderate, though out of place, hop bitterness that comes off in an almost burnt nature. Rye is much more apparent, but it doesn't work well with the hops. That isn't to say it can't. I've had rye IPAs that were delicious. A touch of roastiness, toast, and sugary caramel.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy, but lacking smoothness due to the perceived burnt flavors.

2.5 D: I think this would have worked better if they used less bittering hops. In any case, it's at least interesting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Sort of a murky, rusty shade of amber, with a light khaki head and decent lace/retention. Appearance almost borders that of a brown ale.

S- Grapefruit hops up front, accompanied mostly by other citrus aromas. This is slightly floral, with the rye coming through on the back end along with some clove and candy sugar.

T- Follows the nose. Nice floral presence up front followed by a mild sweetness, and slightly bitter/dry finish. Tasty.

M- Smooth, oily, a bit dry from the hops and the rye. Would not have guessed that this is 7%, as it is very easy to drink.

O- This is a very solid brew overall. It doesn't necessarily kill it in any one aspect, but makes for a great overall package. I would certainly drink this agian.
