As bold as the name suggests but as friendly as the masked man. comes our first adventure into the world of cans. this IPA is full of citrus and pine hop character and aroma. the hop flavors play off the pleasant malt complexity like a good sidekick. Giddy-up.

A: Amber color, when sat still you can almost say it looks like honey. inside glass seems to be very calm, yet foam however was not fully white and creamy, had slight brown strides too it.

S: Very distinguishable smell, probably could pick it out just by its smell from 100 different beers. has a heavy pine smell too it, alongside malt and a little oak too it. all i can say is it makes me wonder what it taste likes?

Taste: heavy entrance too it, seems to fit its style with some slight alters, maybe a little to much malt in the batch. only because that does seem to be a dominating factor in this beer. i would not consider this too be a light beer defiantly has a bitter aftertaste. Don't hate it.

M: I actually can say it does have a smooth body too it, but am not gonna leave out the fact that it is very heavy in a piney stale taste to its entrance.

Very nice spring IPA. Malty, but nice.

I have had this from a can and on draught. This is a brilliant beer from a brewery that I originally didn't give too much credit, after having Domaine DuPage.

The can opens, and ambrosia descends to a pint glass, two and a half fingers of tawny head, and a ruby red hue is underneath this crest. The carbonation is mild.

The smell is of spicy, earthy hops, and alcohol.

The taste is of hop: apricot, pine, and dry finishing hops with a spice. This beer provides a great journey, and I would argue that it is one of Two Brothers' best.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, but thick

Overall, this is a beer for an IPA lover, and someone who appreciate the hop for it truly is our grape.

On tap at the Two Brothers Tap House for about 5 bucks. Arrived in a TBBC nonic, rddish amber with a firm white head that wasn't going to hang around longer that the beer underneath. A nice bready malt aroma was in a rather pitched battle with a small merciless gang of hops, Chinook, Palisades and Ahtanum, according to Gabe Nanni, the restaurant manager.

This beer follows the brothers' usual formula of a hanging a very interesting hop profile on a solid malt backbone. This is an IPA that strikes a fine balance between the malt with a quite proper English biscuity profile and the American Olympic hop team. The hops help keep the palate refreshed and ready for another round, but the malt toughs it out and leaves a slight sweetness behind so the hops can't wear out their welcome. This beer finds the middle ground between the brothers' Bitter End IPA and their Hop Juice IIPA. A great example of putting in the work with the malt in the mash tun so one can play with the hops in the kettle and still produce a very drinkable ale.
