2B tap takeover at Swig on 7/11/12. First beer.

This is a clouded amber-copper brew. The nearly white head on top is impressive, particularly on tap, not for its size (since it's cut down anyway), but for that fact that the inch or so of head on it sticks around for a while and especially how it clings to the glass as the beer falls.
The aroma is a beauty, offering a balanced hoppiness that's complex, with citrus, tropical fruits, floral and pine notes and an even malts presence that lets it stand out complemented by that sometimes-mentioned sweet, candied orange (marmalade) note that just works in this beer. The flavor is interesting in that it's not as potent or as enticing as what's on the nose, ending up being a good-tasting beer that needs as much flavor as it has aroma.
The feel offers a rolling smoothness from a light crispness underneath in a medium body and is fairly creamy.

Poured from their new 12oz can...

Appearance - Pours a finger or so of lite golden eggshell head, color is a gorgeous, slightly hazy light bright orange, rich golden accents at the sides of the glass. Lacing is on the lighter side, but still coats the glass.

Smell - Light citrus, touch of tropical pineapple, and baked bread.

Taste - Really nice complexity here - light tangerine citrus, touch of lemon, nice malt sweetness, biscuit and light breadcrusts, a lot of floral hops towards the end, dry breadcrust, and a touch of grapefruit pith and white pepper. Very well balanced.

Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, crisp and refreshing, carb is medium with lots of edges, very cleansing and bright. Very thirst quenching, and very drinkable. Smooth, but not silky or creamy.

Overall - This is really a very flavorful and quenching beer. I absolutely agree with another reviewer that a bit more citrus would make this fantastic, but this is still a very good beer. I like this alot and would purchase it again. Highly recommend, very interesting flavors, give this one a try.

A- Half inch white fluffy head on a dull light amber body. very good head retention and lacing going on.

S- Mild citrus aromas. Grapefruits, tangerines.

T- Caramel malt and citrus from the hops. Bready malt aftertaste. Drinks less than 6.5%abv.

M- Creamy mouthfeel. Medium to medium-low carbonation for the style, I like it.

D/O- Nice easy drinking IPA here. Is it out of this world? No. But I don't think Two Brothers were going for that here. Top ten sessionable beer I've had this summer.
