I've been waiting to get my hands on this one from my local brewery.
12oz bottle, pours a nice rusty, reddish-copper color, excellent clarity, foamy beige head stands tall & holds, gradually leaving thick chunky lacing at the top of the glass. Nose is fresh citric hops, sweet grapefruit, tropical, fresh pineapple and mango, bready, malty caramel present as well. Tastes are sweet and malty up front, loads of caramel, with brown sugar, honey, toasty grain; tropical fruit in the middle with notes of juicy pineapple and mango, transferring to pine and pungent grapefruit coating the palate & lingering for a bitter, semi-dry yet still sweet finish. Nice balance & complexity. Alcohol is very well concealed. Body is syrupy, medium-to-full bodied, very smooth, hop resins stick around. What? Just read the label - 124ibu? Sweetness actually balances this pretty well. 124? Never would have guessed. Easily a new favorite of mine from Two Brothers. Well done!

This big beer is on the darkest side of the spectrum, well beyond amber at a dark brownish red, bright despite its darkness but only transparent because of its complete clarity. The chunky tan head manages a full finger and settles there, and patching sticks to the glass as it follows the fluid down.
This is an aromatic red, and it makes one wonder why it has to be such a middle-of-the-road style. This beer has far more character than its many pedestrian counterparts; not only is it hoppier, it also has a stronger malts presence and just a big bouquet overall. Pine gives way to orange peel and lots of it, bitter and zesty. Heady and resinous, it achieves balance in a big caramel sweetness, lots of toast and bread crust that follow alongside it almost from the beginning.
The taste continues exactly the same pattern but switching the order, malts hitting the tongue first and hops coming alongside. It's just as big but balanced, so much flavor in this beer. Pine, orange zest, some grapefruit, and a bit more from leaf and lemon notes hit the tongue. The same balance is kept as lots of caramel and toffee add sweetness, toasted breads and crust adding depth. Every single sip gives a big dose of both hops and malt.
Big crispness hits the medium-full body up front and continues through as it goes creamy smooth on the tongue.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Deep orange red glow with nice clarity and about a finger and a half of off white head. Lots of grapefruit and citrus on the nose along with a good but of caramel, touch of honey, and burnt sugar.

Nice and subtle yet big on flavor. Nice underlying bitterness throughout , sweet dark fruits up front, hippiness is a bit onion yes a bit fruity as well. Sounds like an odd combination but along with some of the caramel malts it actually works kind of nicely. Layered in a strange way but it works, quite resinous with a pretty long bitterness. Overall a pretty good beer. No bottled on date but I'm sure if this were extremely fresh it'd be a totally different beer
