This is my favorite beer by far, it is a beautiful golden IPA. Its heavy on the hoppy side of the spectrum with a great floral aroma and a crisp finish. A great example of an American style IPA. Highly recommended for all the hop heads out there. Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Clear orange-gold with a half inch of rocky, orange-tinted white foam. Sheets of lace cover the glass with each sip.

S - Not much oak in the nose, but plenty of hop aroma - pine, grapefruit, orange - as well as tropical fruits and caramel.

T - Incredibly smooth and balanced, for an IPA. Tastes of caramel, candied orange peel, and pineapple are met with assertive hop bitterness and some citrus pith and pine hop flavors. Oak sits in the background, rounding out and combining the various flavors into a cohesive whole. Despite the 70 IBU, this beer is quite mellow, forgoing shrill hoppiness for a more stately disposition.

M - Medium body - smooth, almost creamy.

D - I wasn't a fan of Heavy Handed, so I wasn't sure what to expect from Two Brothers with Resistance. It's greatly exceeded my expectations and stands up to repeat tastings. Highly recommended.
