On tap at the Two Brothers Tap House for about 5 bucks. Arrived in a TBBC nonic, rddish amber with a firm white head that wasn't going to hang around longer that the beer underneath. A nice bready malt aroma was in a rather pitched battle with a small merciless gang of hops, Chinook, Palisades and Ahtanum, according to Gabe Nanni, the restaurant manager.

This beer follows the brothers' usual formula of a hanging a very interesting hop profile on a solid malt backbone. This is an IPA that strikes a fine balance between the malt with a quite proper English biscuity profile and the American Olympic hop team. The hops help keep the palate refreshed and ready for another round, but the malt toughs it out and leaves a slight sweetness behind so the hops can't wear out their welcome. This beer finds the middle ground between the brothers' Bitter End IPA and their Hop Juice IIPA. A great example of putting in the work with the malt in the mash tun so one can play with the hops in the kettle and still produce a very drinkable ale. (1,038 characters)

A: Burnt-orange/amber in color. Humongous off white head created from me trying to pour from the growler into the glass and not on the counter. Sticky with lots of lacing.

S: Up front floral hops with lesser grapefruit aroma fading to a noticeable maltiness.

T: Balanced is the key word here. First note is caramel malts, a little bit sweet, balanced out by the typical English-style bittering hops.

M: Medium weight. Medium carbonation. A little cloying sweetness, but finishes with a nice mild bitterness.

D: Very easy to drink. Can (and did) have multiple beers in one sitting. I'm going to guess the ABV is somewhere around 6 or 7%.

This beer reminds me very much of a hopped up Bass pale ale. The color is virtually identical and the flavor is quite similar as well. However, this beer is much more aromatic and the flavor hoppier, though by no means is this a hopped up monster. As noted before this is a very balanced beer - noticeable malts and hops - in the style of an English Bitter or English IPA. (1,027 characters)
