Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Allow me to preface saying that Hop Juice is one of my favorite beers I have ever had and I love Bell's Hopslam, and I am no stranger to hops...

Appearance: Pours an amber/red with a heavy head that dissipates rather quickly.

Smell: Heavy hops, that is about all I can smell. Probably Simcoe or Columbus.

Taste: I like IPA's, I really do, but this is just not doing it for me. I know it is a rye beer, but I have not had another rye to compare. This just tastes like it has very little balance besides just heavy hops. I get sweetness on the tip of my tongue, but in the short time it takes to get to the back everything is overwhelmed by hops.

Mouthfeel: Thin, tastes undercarbonated, possibly the reason for the overwhelming hops.

Overall: If you want hops with no balance, here is your beer. I like hops, but I cannot find one bit of sweetness or redeeming taste to allow anything but hops to be tasted in this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- This BEER pours a murky brown/red color. The head starts out one finger thick, but ends up much less than that.

Smell- Cane and Ebel has an earthy, almost musty smell in the bottle. Once poured, I could pick up a pepper and caramel smell.

Taste- At first sip, I could taste a caramel/malt flavor. There is sweetness to this initial taste, but the earthy barley flavor keeps it from being overwhelming. Rye & sweetness gives way to a slight bitterness from hops.

Mouthfeel- slightly sticky... lingers on the tongue with bitterness and slight earthy tones

Overall- I am very happy with the way earthy rye and bitter hops dance in this ale. This unique ale really works!

Beautiful beer...deep mahogany... had it on tap at charlies ale house in wheaton. The roughly 7% alcohol is undetectable, probably because the distinct flavor of the summit hop covers it up. Fairly citrusy and slightly earthy/herbaly... this beer is one to be reckoned with.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a traditionial pub glass, just above room temperature...lacing was consisent throughout the whole drinking period. For some reason, the hops in this seems really fresh and pronouced. The ale has a kick, even though the alchol is well masked.

Overall I am impressed with this unique beer.

Tried this for the first time on cask . . .

Nice two-finger head with adequate lacing as it drank.

Pretty burnt red tone that was crystal clear in the glass.

Aroma was a knock-down piney hop hit up front with some big malt notes playing right alongside it.

Drinks VERY spicy. From the nose, one would expect to get a very pungent bitter hit from the hops--and they're certainly there--but the balance is pretty impressive. Big, round spice with some caramel in the malt but the floral, grapefruity hops wipe the malt away. C&E drinks big, but I wouldn't have been opposed to having another one (or two?) over the course of an evening. It's just so well-balanced. I'm very impressed.

Cane and Ebel, brewed by Two Brothers Brewing Co.

I had some expectations on this beer for two reasons. First, I've yet to have a Two Bros beer that wasn't well styled, and second, "a hopped-up red rye ale" how can you not be fired up!

A: Deep red copper colored, lightly transparent, with a strong lingering head. Consistent light lacing.

S: Light grapefruit citrus over a depth of malt.

T: Initial hop burst of west coast hops (I think) that is quickly overtaken by the nicely sweet malt.

M: Medium to light.

D: Easy drinking, not entirely smooth (quick hop burst/deep malt), but the transition is enjoyable. Definitely enjoy one before, during and after dinner. Truly an enjoyable beverage.
