This is a damn fine ale, my friend. Really tasty big red with lots of hops flavor and aroma, a sweet caramel bread-like malt character, solidly bitter, like citrus-y marmalade on a toasted muffin. Real good!
Thanks, I'm real glad you like it! That beer was the most psyched I've ever been for someone else to try it. I was trying real hard not to say too much about it because I wanted as objective an opinion as possible. Thanks again, man!

Two Brothers Heavier Handed. This is an amped up version of their regular seasonal wet hopped IPA Heavy Handed. This one is aged in oak.
So, so good! I wish I had more than this one bottle!

Yeah, it's really tasty. Had it with a cheesesteak for dinner. Good and hoppy, cut right through the spice from the sport peppers.

I find it's lacking much honey character in the aroma and flavor. It's there but quite subtle. It really tastes more like a Muscat or Riesling than a mead.

The wood flavor isn't dominant, that's for sure, but I like the way it mellows the imperial IPA.
