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.

This has been a want of mine for a while. Saw it in a six pack and had to grab it.

A - pours a lot darker than I anticipated. Brownish/copper color with a really nice billowing head that leaves a really nice lacing down the glass.

S - the nose has spicy rye malts, some piney, resinous hops, and some candy-like sweetness

T - starts off up front with a sugary sweetness that fades into a really nice rye flavor. The rye has a caramel / brown sugar richness to it that makes it very smooth. Ends with some nice hoppy, piney bitterness, which contrasts the sweet and spiciness from the rye and caramel malts.

M - nice and full bodied with a nice amount of carbonation

D - this is the best rye beer I have had to date. Really nice flavor profile to and pretty damn attractive in the glass. Glad to see this in six packs now with about the same price point it used to be. I'll be buying more of this in the future.

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.
