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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

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.
