1.3/5  rDev -64.1%

really not good for an ipa especially when factoring the numbers. 60 ibus with 6.3% abv. theres a split second of hop followed by water, alcohol, and fizz. pretty much sums up two brothers acoss the board. well below average. bottom line there are dozens of ipas much more worthy of your money

Pours a nice sticky looking head over a very hazy copper body. Leaves some nice lacing in the glass, but the chill haze signals the flaws in this beer.

Smells of pine, porridge (overcooked grains), band aid, and some mushy nondescript tropical fruits.

Tastes the same.

Wish there was more carbonation to wash the taste away that just sticks to my mouth.

I want to like this brewery considering I see it everywhere. I hate to outright pan a beer and indeed, there was a time I didn't mind this brewery. But the more I come back to Two Brothers (and this happens every time I drink one of their beers, which is rarely these days) I wonder why a beer that tastes like someone's first attempts at homebrewing is on the shelf at my local beer/wine store.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a chalice.

A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with over one finger of parchment-tinted foam head. Medium lacing remains on the glass.

S: Grain is caramelized and husky, while hops are piney with some lesser semi-dark citrus. Other mixed fruit qualities reinforce heartiness of the malt.

T: Begins very off-dry, with chewy caramel malt and equally robust hop aromatics that match the smell well. Acidity is mild into the middle where citrus qualities darken before bitterness is quick to replace other hop-derived flavors. Bitterness becomes pronounced by the finish, where a mineral edge is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, resinous and slightly syrupy on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer's qualities are intense for its strength--it's 6.3% abv (as listed on the package) is the only feature that clearly separates it from the majority of beers from Lagunitas or Oskar Blues. As an IPA it is rather unremarkable, although the smell and flavor are closely tied.

Best by 11/28/12. 12oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a beautiful transparent burnt orange, huge chunky white head that sticks around, great sticky lacing and great retention. The aromas are full of orange zest and orange peel. Pine needles are in the mix too. There's alot of caramel malts present in the nose as well. The flavors are dominated by fresh orange and pine resin. The caramel malts are there in a big way giving this a strong breadiness. The flavors are bittersweet. The bitterness lingers for a second, but fades quickly. The flavors are very one dimensional, and lacks true complexity. Mouthfeel is nice, somewhat lacks carbonation and feels thin, but it's smooth enough and actually enjoyable. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

Not really feeling this one. I've never been a fan of this hop profile to begin with, and this is really no exception.
Two Brothers' other IPAs like Resistance and Heavy Handed are WAY more enjoyable than this, in my opinion.

Swirl by 6/20/14... OK. Pours a solid orange with fluffy offwhite colored head, decent retention and rings of lace for a few inches. Smell: faded apricot, vegetal, mild sweet citrus, steely. Really? It's in a can that's lived in a cooler since it got to the store... is it this badly faded a month before their best by date or is it starting from a bad place to begin with? Taste: too much caramel, metallic, peach tea, mild pine and citrus peel. I might retry a guaranteed fresh can, but this is pretty bad.
