22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a cloudy light orange/ peach color. About a half fingers worth of head quickly fades to some spotty lacing along the sides of the glass.

S- Not much of an aroma coming through, some rye hints come about as well as the faint aroma of citrusy hops.

T- Starts off smooth with some hop hints and leaves behind some malty rye notes.

M- Light, dry finish, nicely bitter.

Pretty good stuff from 2 Brothers, I think I like Cane and Ebel more though.

A: Clear straw/amber and low/medium carbonation.

S: Malty with spicy rye note and nice hop aroma.

T: Strong malt yet dry with spicy rye bite and bold hop finish which strengthens as this warms.

M: Medium/full mouthfeel and lightly carbonated

O: One of my favorite Two Brothers brews. Even better than Cane & Ebel.

Bomber into Duvel tulip.

Gotta say: this is one sexy pour. Medium orange colored with awesome, eggshell colored head which lingers for quite some time. Smell is largely of bready malts. For 68 IBUs, not a ton of hop presence here. A bit of lingering bitterness, but not a ton of hop OR rye complexity. I would rate this much higher as a pale ale, but not as a Rye PA. Decent, but not even close to their Cane & Ebel. I'm partial to the style, so I may be a harsh critic. Might be a bit faded as well.
