4.45/5 rDev +8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is ruby/mahogany-amber with a small off-white head. Some legs of lace on the way down.
S: Very nice - citrus and pine over toffee and caramel malt. Perfect balance for this style - i.e., American Imperial Red Ale.
T: Sweet toasty malt, caramel malt, toffee & brown sugar provide the malty foundation. Follows at the back end with a good amount of grapefruity citrus and resiny pine bitterness. Finishes with lingering pine needle bitterness and a touch of ABV heat. That alcohol (9.5%, so no surprise) is felt down the gulley and as heat in the belly.
M: Call it medium-to-full in heft. Carbonation is fairly light, but enough to keep it from becoming thick or syrupy in feel.
O: Impressed with this one more so than I have been with other Two Brothers releases. Very nice balance of sweet (brown sugar, toffee, caramel malt) and bitter (citrus, pine and resiny pine). Good version of an Imperial Red; I'd have this again.

2.36/5 rDev -42.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1
Appearance - cherry hues amber, nice top of manila foam, laces well.
Aroma - caramel and orange, reminds me of an aged dipa.
Taste - sweet up front, followed by a very harsh bitterness. Kind of makes me think this is infected, but there is still plenty of sweetness here. Very strange. Swallow is very bitter, dry, harsh, but with a backdrop of sweetness. Finishes warm with alcohol.
Mouthfeel - decent body, crisp.
Overall - bad flavor after the initial sweetness has me considering the drain on this one, a rarity in this house. Maybe a fresher sample would fare better, I'll keep my eyes open and re-evaluate if I get a chance.
