Seen this brewer at the craft beer outlet so I thought I give it a try. I was pleasently surprised at how good it was.
B/B 6/29/13
As soon as I popped the can a pleasent hoppy bouquet greeted me. Citrusy with oily hop resin and a desent malt bill. A great nose.
Appearance was nice to, I was looking forward to drink it. It was welcoming. The color was amber with a loose structured white head on top.
Taste was sweet to begin, and had a good hoppy bite. Hops were citrusy like in the nose but was a bit muddled too. Malts balanced out nicely to make this a fresh easy drinking beer with a slightly bitter ending.
My first from Two Brothers and hopefully noit my last. Go get some.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a two-finger, off white head of foam. Some sticky lacing.

S - Smelled of pine and orange.

T - Piney with a citrusy bitterness. A burnt toast maltiness with sweet caramel.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. Medium bodied.

O - This is a good canned IPA. Never let down by a Two Brothers beer.

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.5 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Retention is good and glass covering lacing is left.

4.0 S: Heavy tropical citrus with earthy hop undertones. Mango and papaya lead the pack with pineapple and orange to follow. Earthiness and flowers give complexity. Clean maltiness underneath that is slightly grainy and slightly bready. Light crystal maltiness.

4.0 T: The taste is much, much, much, much maltier than the nose. I dare say the malts stand out more than the hops. Bready overall with a ton of caramel and a "peachy maltiness." Hops are again mainly of the tropical nature, but they don't stand out as much. Same fruits though. Low bitterness. Tasty.

4.0 M: Medium to slightly heavier body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess going on here and super smooth.

4.0 D: Solid, malty IPA. Good balance and plenty of flavor.

Two Brothers Brewing Co. "Outlaw India Pale Ale"
12 fl. oz. can
$1.83 @ Weis Market, Conshohocken, PA

Notes: Crystal-clear orange-amber body beneath a frothy head of off-white. The flavor displays a soft and smooth combination of caramelish malt and floral, citrusy, piney, and mildly tropical hops. The flavor follows and I'm finding additional mild notes of peach, pineapple, sweetened grapefruit, earthy, spicy, and grass. This doesn't mean that it's bold, just that there is some complexity to what's there. The caramelish malt is really nice, and there's even an edge of roastiness. It's bready and toasty and just lightly sweet. A solid bitterness balances it, allowing the sweetness to show midway, but then whipping it into a dry finish with lingering notes of quickly fading fruit and light pine and earth and spice. Hmm, there's a little bit of red fruit and apple to it as well, probably from the yeast. Medium bodied with a fine-bubbled standard carbonation. Overall quite a nice very well-balanced and rounded IPA that straddles the both the English and American styles. Highly drinkable!

Amber color with a thick and fluffy white head. There was a moderate lacing involved.

A good balance of a bready malt and floral hoppiness, just about what I expected.

Same on the taste. The malt balance plays a huge part in the smell and taste of the beer, but is not overdone and plays well in a tug of war against the hop bitterness.

Medium body and carbonation, with a barely dry bitter finish.

It drinks very well. Alcohol is not detectable and it's an all around enjoyable brew.

Globe; 12 oz can. From what I remember having it this fall, this was a solid IPA.

On tap at The Blind Tiger, NYC.

Poured a deep copper hue with a one and a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a spicy peaty malt and a soft hop.

The taste was upfront earthy cereal malts with an accompanying fruity hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller and softer side of the style.

Overall a nice malt forward IPA.
