BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Two Roads Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States
tworoadsbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Two Roads version of this traditional beer style takes a road less traveled. It’s unfiltered and uses wheat as the dominant malt backbone. The result is a slightly cloudy, pale IPA with a softer mouthfeel that accentuates the citrusy Pacific Northwest hop character.

Great beer - I'm not usually an IPA person, but the esters of the wheat beer really balance out those usually hardcore American hops. Yum.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned March 1st 2016.

Pale lemon colored, and a hazy unfiltered body appearance, but with some degree of clarity as some fine carbonation can be seen easily reaching up to the top. Head creation is a big frothy chunk. Easily making a controlled four fingers, bleach white in color, with thick soapy cling and a soft creamy top. Very nice looking pale IPA brew.

Real nice aroma. Whispy pine and citrus notes roll right off, with a good sweetness to match. Slightly hits tropical, but with far more oily citrus zest in the aroma as well. Chewy sensing malt depth hinting with soft grains. Very inviting.

May the hopped up wheat ale goodness continue. Chewy and rich dough like mouthfeel, brings out a fantastic juiced and rich body. Tropical light pineapple with a good mix of melon and citrus juicy flavors in the mid palate. Creamy sweet finish and flavor on the aftertaste, nearly hints at vanilla with a good pineapple sundae flavor.

Pretty impressed for a solidly 3 month old IPA, this is really delivering, just delicious.

Simply delicious! Pours foamy and light gold, the way you'd expect a white ale to look. The combination of flavors in here was truly masterfully done, and based on this and their pilsner, I'd say Two Roads is a brewery I'm excited to try more beers from
The smell is fresh and crisp with some lemon, lightly citrusy hops, and a hint of sweetness. The taste works the lemongrass flavor in nicely, but more noticeable is the honey and light, fruity flavors like peach and nectarine. The hops are juicy and pleasant, with hardly any bitterness and fruity without being sweet. It was really hard not to drink this whole thing in one go. Perfect for summer or any time of year.

A pale yellow cloudy pour into a chilled Sam Adams glass on a 90 degree day. I enjoy the wheat backbone of this easy drinking IPA, my new summer go to.

Nice beer. Smell the sweertness and goes down smooth. Wish it was a little more hoppy. But I will drink again.
Two roads continues to impress.
Would've great with Waldorf Salad, chicken or around the BBQ!!
