Coming at you all with one more brew from the good folks at Two Villains, this time with a beer my wife and I took home with us.

Beer Name: Origin Story

Brewery: Two Villains Brewing (Nyack, NY)

Style: NEIPA

ABV: 6.5%

Description: Brewed with oats and a blend of malt, it was then whirlpooled and dry hopped with some of the brewers’ favorite fruit-forward American and New Zealand varieties.

Appearance: It poured a hazy amber/pineapple juice colored body topped by a thin, slightly off-white head of foam.

Smell: Burst of sticky tropical fruit the moment I opened the crowler.

Taste: Sweet upfront, beginning with pulpy citrus fruits and apricot before some more mellow melon notes set in.  A nice pale malty/oaty base poked through around mission and was quickly followed a slightly resinous grapefruit bitterness that carried through to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation.

Hype: High!  My first my time drinking an official Two Villains beer at home that wasn’t a home brew.  I also missed this one the brewery and my wife raved about it on the way back to the car.

Overall: I can certainly understand now why this was such a hit!  Great juicy flavor and just the right amount of bitterness on the end made this one a real winner.
