12 oz bottle. "BY" 3/15/12.

It pours a clear gold with a frothy white head that recedes to some pretty nice lacing.

The smell is real nice. There is plenty of oak which makes it unique but it doesn't override the hops which still are there despite the aging process. It is like orange blossom, grapefrit, and vanilla in a a way.

The flavor is good. Not a bitter IPA, and not a malty one. But a good round flavor.

Served in a glass mug.

Thanks to taiyed for this bottle!

Grabbed one o' these during the initial stages of brewing today. It pours a slightly hazy sunrise amber topped by a finger of slightly off-white foam. The nose comprises pine, grapefruit, lemon, melon, flowers, and smooth toffee. The taste runs very similarly, with slightly less toffee (that's right, folks, even more hoppy goodness!) and a touch of cedar in the background. The body straddles the border between heavy light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, very hop-forward without really stinging the tongue, and the wood really works in a nice, subtle way.

On tap at the Blind Pig Brewery in Champaign, IL

A: Pours a clear copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Nice sticky lace is left behind.
S: Grassy, floral, lemony hops. I very nice hop aroma. Toasted, grainy malts for balance. Slightly bready w ith a bit of caramel sweetness.
T: Follows the nose with plenty of floral hops. Herbal and grassy with some fruity flavors. Lots of balance with toasted malts and bread/biscuit. I like it.
M/D: A medium body that is very crisp. Clean, dry and refreshing. Very easy to drink. I can put a few away without a problem.

A very nice IPA. Like everything else I have had from Two Brothers, something I would recommend, and something I always look forward to when I visit the family in Illinois.
