Pours an amber, reddish hue, indicative of the style. Head is an inch thick and retains well, leaving average lacing.

Immediate smell is of caramel and bubblegum, with a strong lemon/orange citrus behind it. Candy-like combination of the citrus and malt is very, very pleasant on the nose.

Taste follows the aroma: caramel, brown sugar front, quickly followed by a tasty orange center. The orange is sweetened, not sour, and normally I'd prefer the latter, but here it works. Alcohol offers a bit of a harsh sweetness. Finish is bitter and a bit acrid.

Mouthfeel is harsh compared to the rest of the package, with the bitterness very strong (in a good way) for the style. Alcohol offers that warmth found in big stouts but not usually in red ales. Drinkability helped by the bitterness, hindered by the alcohol, but for a 9.5% abv beer this is incredibly easy to down. Overall a great red ale, and I'm happy to see it bottled in six packs.

Two Brothers No. 15 beer of 15 beers for 15 years. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- Pours a clear dark copper with a 2 finger light tan head. Small blotches and bubbles linger on the glass.

S- Caramel, brown sugar, citrus, dark fruits, and pine.

T- Sweet toasted malts, caramel, toffee, pineapple and citrus, brown sugar, with big pungent citrus and pine bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Has a nice creaminess.

O- 2 Bros. got this one right at least! Very nice balance of sweet and bitter citrus along with some brown sugar. It lists the beer at 24 ibu's, although it has a nice bitter punch it is no palate wrecker (not the beer) by any means.

A - Poured out a clear, burgundy color with a one-finger, off white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled strongly of pine. Some citrus notes, too.

T - It tasted piney and resiny with a burnt toast maltiness. Bitter and tasty.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium to full bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a really good imperial amber ale. Two Brothers continues to impress.

Picked up a couple of singles from the Craft Beer Hop Stop in North Phoenix for $2.49 each. Part of Lot 3374.

Beer poured amber brown with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is citrus hops, quite nice.

Taste is citrus, mango, peach with a touch of pine balanced nicely by a caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall I am liking how the mango and peach linger nicely after each sip. I thought 124 ibu's would be over the top but given this beer is likely born in December it may have mellowed and melded a bit over time. Glad Two Brothers has entered the Arizona market!

A: alright, I kinda chetaed and poured it into a weizen glass: I was hoping it would have a color that the glass would accentuate - and it did - to say it was an amber-brown beer does no justice to how great this beer looks - red-orange hightlights, off-white head - a finger+ - slimmed into a thin cap, left small motes and sheets of lace - and great clarity

S: rich hearty malts and robust hops

T: deep malts gave this beer its color, and it tastes the way it looks - great malt backbone, superior hoppage makes it like a dark IPA; slight sweetness, vaguely suggestive of the brown sugar on sweet potatoes; hops are piney, resinous, and citric

M: slightly sticky, light-to-medium-light body, crisp, bitter

O: really impressed - but I don't get to a lot of Imperial red ales, so I don't want to gush - aside from style-expectations, I would say this was an extremely enjoyable beer.
