4.28/5  rDev +10.9%

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
Burnt-orange in color, with a huge cloud deck of rocky, creamy foam. Nice looking beer.
Aroma-Piney citrus, subtle oakeyness
Taste-Piney citrus hops, tart oakiness, and some honey sweetness, all balanced very nicely without one flavor overpowering the other. Tasty and interesting, crisp and pleasant, a nice melding of flavors: Hop bitterness, tangy oak, and a subtle honey sweetness. Nicely done!

Pour into a pint glass

A-Honey colored

S-Honey, malt, earthy, pine, but not too strong.

T-Sweet up front then instant earthy and oak taste. Not too strong of an IPA would be a great IPA to introduce someone to the style

M-Medium carbonation.

0- Very good IPA by 2 Bros. Not too strong, not too bitter such as Outlaw. This used to be brewed year round but was replaced by Outlaw in a can. I think two brothers should switch them back. It's simple, sweet, and good. A nice change up, I recommend getting a 6er of this brew.

On tap at Brixies in Brookfield IL, served in a shaker pint

It pours a clear medium amber with little to no head. A medium amount of lacing coats the glass.

The nose is pretty muted with just a little bit of pine type hops and crystal malts.

The taste is where this beer came alive to me. Huge amount of pine and grassy hops with a firm bitterness. To me the oak is very present and actually cuts through the bitterness well. I don't know if it's because this is the first beer out of the foundres but the oak is strong and I really like what its bringing to this beer. There is some crystal malt sweetness to it as well.

It finishes pretty dry and the oak helps with that. The carbonation is on the higher side. It's quite drinkable and I really prefered this over the Heavier Handed. I hope this beer sticks around for a while.

A: Cloudy with beautiful lacing with a great head. Orangey/amber/gold colored beer.
S: Citrus/hoppy/piney
T: Almost exactly as it smells. First a sweet citrus (orange/grapefruit) then then a hoppy bight, next a note of pine.
M: This beer feels thick but not overbearing.
D: Decent. One is not enough. Wouldn't drink all night.
