Bottle into imperial nonic.

Looks ok-- dark reddish brown. Clear. It looks like it *should* be murky but it isn't. One finger of ecru head settled to a nice thin cap of frothy foam.

Smells richly malty-- sweet caramel and toffee. A big hoppiness is present here, and it is extremely bitter. The flavors of the hops don't hold a candle to the bitterness... But there are some floral and citrus notes.

Feels oily and surypy. Big hop oil coating my teeth after each sip, but it's a sugary kind of gritty oiliness/suryp feel.

Overall-- this really isn't a bad beer. It's not the best imperial red I've had, but it's closer to the top than to the bottom.
Totally worth a drink.

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!

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

And here ends the 15-part celebration of the brewery's fifteenth anniversary, complete with no obvious mention of the fact. Nice. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear blood-garnet topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, toasted biscuit, light rye bread, mandarin orange, and a touch of leek in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a healthy dose of fruit rind and a decent addition of pine resin. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a very nice imperial red, one gushing with hops without burning the tongue, and one brimming with booze without forcing a cringe or grimace. Not a bad capstone, really.

Two Brothers No. 15 beer of 15 beers for 15 years. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- Pours a clear dark copper with a 2 finger light tan head. Small blotches and bubbles linger on the glass.

S- Caramel, brown sugar, citrus, dark fruits, and pine.

T- Sweet toasted malts, caramel, toffee, pineapple and citrus, brown sugar, with big pungent citrus and pine bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Has a nice creaminess.

O- 2 Bros. got this one right at least! Very nice balance of sweet and bitter citrus along with some brown sugar. It lists the beer at 24 ibu's, although it has a nice bitter punch it is no palate wrecker (not the beer) by any means.
