4.73/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured into an Olde Hickory glass on 1/17/13

Lot 3132

Nice-looking tobacco brown of medium depth. The head has loose bubbles but they hold for a while at the one and a half finger mark before dropping down. Circles of lace remain that make the inside of the glass look like a golf ball.

Hops aplenty come bursting out of the aroma, equally oily and resinous. There is a strong, bright citrus presence: peach, tangerine, grapefruit and such. It smells very juicy at first, bringing to mind marmalade and fruit jam as it opens up. Touches of pine. Biscuit dust hangs in the air as pastry-like malts lay underneath. I'm not getting any caramel.

Breakfast and beer are almost always brought together some combination of coffee, oatmeal, maple and, perhaps, bacon. But this; this, my friends, finds the oft overlook sweet side of breakfast - biscuits lathered in jam and jelly, and fruit pasties to spare.

The flavors develop in a much different manner: Toasted grains and bread come first, though both are soon awash in a swell of hop oils. Here, the hops exhibit much more pine; lots of sticky resin. Citric zest peppers the mid-section. Indeed, the hops are worthy of revelry As the oils carry the beer on, a smooth alcohol heat moves across the palate. More hop flavor than bitterness.

The feel is resinous enough that the body might as well be called full. Carbonation is taxed heavily by the oils which means it falls comfortably within my preferential range. The finish is zesty, dry and the alcohol is less appreciable over time.

I'm a sucker for a good imperial red ale, but have been disappointed many times by Two Brothers. When I came across a chilled single, I had to give it a try. They knocked it outta the park with this one. An easy recommendation.

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.
