12 oz bottle into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a clear straw color with plenty of carbonation. The head is a finger high and white in shade. The retention is quite good, but since its texture is quite soapy, it doesn't seem to leave much lacing on the glass. A beautiful beer. (4.5)

Smell: This has some nice fruitiness - mostly tropical, but with a slight peppery edge as well. Maltiness appears as it opens up slightly, more focused on white bread and table sugar over caramel. Not bad at all - this beer seems like the archetypal new-school pale ale to me. (3.5)

Taste: It opens up with nice malty flavors. Primarily white bread and crackers, but I'm also getting a little table sugar as well. Its hoppiness seems slightly spicy at first, only to gradually build a gentle tropical flavor on the back end. Not bitter at all, especially once the palate gets used to it. No surprises, just a delicious pale ale. (3.75)

Mouthfeel: The feel seems almost full-bodied to me. Still, it's crisp and dry enough to help compensate. Carbonation is somewhat above average, helping the body go down easily. (4)

Overall: This is the second Two Brothers beer that's impressed me. It doesn't quite blow me away, but that only means I'll gladly drink several in a session instead of just one. It also provides exactly what I want from a pale ale: great malt flavors, great hop flavors, impressive drinkability, and a relative richness. I'd enjoy drinking this one every day, but I'd enjoy it even more if I could actually buy it for every day consumption. (4)

3.81/5: Very good beer that represents everything right about new-school pale ales

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Clear, light golden color with one finger of white head that lingers.

Aroma: Bright, floral and herbal hop aroma, with tree fruit and fruit juice notes.

Taste: Grainy, grassy malt up front, then some mildly spicy hop bitterness with the carbonation. Finishes with some malt sweetness, but is otherwise pretty clean.

The Rest: A decent beer with a really great aroma. Very drinkable and refreshing.
