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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a deep copper color with a fingers width foamy head. Transparent when put up to light. Good carbonation, very lively.

Very fruity, sweet smell. Not very strong, but good.

Great balance of the sugar and rye for a sweet, fruity taste. I enjoyed this one.

Quite a drinkable beer, very tasty and light enough to drink a few back to back. I have a feeling this will be a great summer beer, I'll definitely be buying more when it gets warmer.

A: a dark brown with a nice head.

S: Huge overtones of malt and rye greet me take in the aroma from the glass.

T: A hit of citrus with malt and hops powering through to the end of the taste.

M: perhaps a tad undercarbonated for my liking. Very smooth.

D: A nice change of pace beer for me. I'm not normally a fan of Red Ryes, but the extra hop in this beer intrigued me. It will go in the rotation.

Poured from bottle a rich amber red. Form off white head about an inch. Head droped and some lacing remained. Looked good, a little cloudiness but pleasant color.

Fruit aroma came out right away, reminded me of dried apricots.

Piney hop taste with other components, light dried fruit and citrus.

Comfortable on the tongue, pleasant drinking.

S- citrus-piney hops, malts.

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.

Had the Cane and Ebel on tap at the Lyndale Tap house with some southern sliders.

A - Beautiful red/copper/burgundy hue. Decent head. Decent lacing.

T - Yes please. The Rye is perhaps stronger than other rye beers I am used to (BGW Bitter Woman, Founders Red Rye, etc) but this is not a bad thing in this case, by any means. Very very good. Good balance of hop and malt. I would highly recomend this beer on its taste.

D - Good. Smoooth and perhaps a tad heavy. Perfect compliment to my dinner.

A: Medium orangey brown type of color.

S: Milldy fruity and dry

T: At first it is a bit hoppy for me (Not the biggest fan of IPA type beers), but this quickly faded for me. After the bitter hops faded, there was a very unique flavor to this one. Very mild smooth fruit smoothy type of aftertaste, and a bit of vanilla. Very surprising flavor for a rye beer.

Summary: Hated this one at first but different tastes started popping out everytime I took a sip. Very unique flavor to this one. I will probably be drinking this one agian.
