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.

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.
