4/5  rDev -1.2%

A deep amber color is pored in the glass, with a thick off-white colored head, that is an inch and a half high. A grassy fragrance strikes the nose at first scent that is followed by wood esters like vanilla. Then the aroma finishes out with lemon and citrus scents. The taste has a malty sweetness then the hints of wood and vanilla come through. It all finishes with a grassy, earthy, and citrus (mostly pineapple) flavors dominate and linger on the palate. There is syrupy consistency as it touches the lips then moving towards
a medium bodied feel, gradually blending to a slightly more heavier feel. A medium dryness coats the middle of the palate and spreads to the back. This beer is definitely not a session beer, mainly due to the taste. A fragrant aroma, a hearty feel, and cornucopia of flavors, you want to just sit, sip, and savor this beer.

A very smooth IPA. Love the use of fresh hops. It really adds to the flavor of the beer. Definitely a step above heavy handed. Taste is very smooth and good. Not even abhint that it is over 8 percent. Another great Two Brothers brew! Color is bout perfect! Great beer!

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

A - Not much head to this just a 1/4 inch that settles to a mild lace ring. It's ok.
S - Smell is good for a DIPA not too hoppy mostly malts so it might be old. Smells actually nice.
T - Taste is great balanced taste of citrus and herbal hops, crystal malts and crackers about. Super easy to drink but not great.
M - Light to medium is this 8%

Overall it is good but I found it too lacking. It was 8.99 for the bottle its for sure not worth another purchase but it is one of the smoothest DIPA's I drank. Would love to try this fresh.
