Poured into belgian tulip (felt like being fancier than a pint glass, since it's aged in french foudres). Pours a clear yellow-orange with a lovely fluffy white head that sticks everywhere, leaving incredibly fine lacing. Smell is pretty complex; smooth oak overtones swim among spicy, piney hops and muted slightly sweet bready malt. Taste is harsh at first, a piney hop barrage which fades, with slight citrus rind flavors, into smooth oak, honey, bready malt and slight alcohol warmth which works very well with the flavors. Hoppy beers work very well on oak; this is reminding me of Oaked Old Guardian. Mouthfeel is smooth and clean.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date 10/15/2013. I haven't had this beer in quite some time, but I remember liking it a lot the last time I drank it. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a light bright coppery orange color with about one finger of doughy off-white head on top. Some bubbles rushing to the top. Lots of scattered wispy lacing.
S - The bottle describes it pretty accurately: sweetened honeyed malts, piney citrus hop bite, and an ever so subtle vanilla / oak aroma.
T - Taste follows the nose: super citrusy pine hops with nice bitterness, sweet malts to balance it out, and a subtle oak wood presence. Aftertaste is slightly coppery and metallic.
M - Feel is of bitter hop resins coating the palate, and some sugary sweetness lingering around.
Overall, a very nicely done IPA from Two Brothers, one that I had forgotten how good it was. I'm not sure that aging the beer in "French oak foudres" accomplished much, but it lends some subtle complexities to the beer which are pretty nicely done. Rewarding 6.90% abv, this is a beer I would happily drink again and again.
Two Brothers Resistance IPA ---4/5.

A: A very clear light orange. A one finger foamy head.
S: A good amount of citrus. Very grassy and little floral. sour malt with just the smallest hint of caramel. slight vanilla. Very faint smelling.
T: Very floral hops. Lemon grass, lemon zest, sweet caramel. Not a ton of oak but a slight bit of vanilla. Pine in the finish. Sweet honey on the finish. The best way to describe the hops are sticky.
M: Lots of carbonation give this a light body and make it refreshing and drinkable.
O: This is a nice IPA. i wish the oak would shine a little more but its a very nice earthy forward IPA with some nice malt sweetness. /85
