Pours a rather bland slightly cloudy and rusty amber orange.

The aromatics are outstanding, resinous, piney, lemon, and orange zest smell fresh and well balanced. No harsh notes.

Much less sticky resin than I was expecting, but juicy and citrusy hop profile, met by a warm and soft caramel malts.

Smooth as water, the wet hopping definitely takes a lot of the hop bitterness away.

Overall, another fantastic beverage from Two Brothers, I just wish I had two!

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!
