On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Off-white head, moderate retention on a dark amber body. Lacing is soapy and clear, sticky. Aroma includes some caramel malt, but is certainly dominated by quite a hop bill. Resinous hop juiciness in the form of grapefruit and grass, some earthiness. Taste is biting and bitter balanced by some nice malt sweetness. Tongue coating with a warming mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Pours a nice, foamy head that is off-white-tan, and is surprisingly not persistent, yet resiny. Aroma is sweet malt, floral hops, and spicy rye...just brilliant. A deep burnt umber color. Starts bitter with notes of grapefruit and a LOT of rye spiciness coming through. Builds to a hefty bitterness in the middle. Bitterness begins to become very pronounced and a mix of pine resin and grapefruit/citrus rind. Right as this flavor is most intense, it cuts into the malt, where the rye shines right through, and the finish is still hop bitterness, a touch of rye, and then the sweetness of the palm sugar comes through.

Complex, (rye) malty, hoppy. Everything you could ever want from one bier.

Poured from a 12oz bottle... right into my duvel glass

A- pours a deep red color... almost blood like... even the thickness feels like it. Big white head.... lots of sticky lacing

S- cane sugar, rye malt, earthy grass, tons of sugar in the nose but very well balanced...

T- very pronounced rye malt... more than the smell... hint of sweetness maybe from the cane sugar... earthy hops and funk in the back of the throat

M- dry, sweet, bittnerness.... bubbly down the throat...

O- this is yet another brewery you can't really go wrong with... their more driven towards taste over ABV. track them down and enjoy like a victorious Viking lol

Reviewing as an Imperial Red Ale.

A: Cloudy, true red body with an off-white lacey head with sticky long legs.

S: Wet aroma, characteristics are still fresh. Excellent balance of lightly sweet caramel malts and floral/citrus hops.

T/M: A gummy body makes for easy drinking. All the flavors blend together while being noticeable, yet not very pronounced; the sugary body and smooth rye properties could be the acting catalyst.

O: Far exceeding my expectations. First brew from Two Brothers. This suits my classification for a higher gravity, well-hopped red ale. Clean flavors and alcohol kept in check.
