Tall Boys Two Hop Pale Ale had a distinct lemon and orange nose to it, with both of those aromas being long lasting on the nose. Once Tall Boys Two Hop Pale Ale had warmed up some more, there was a light pineapple and pine aroma that came through too – nothing too powerful but it was definitely noticeable against the citrusy profile. In terms of malt, Tall Boys Two Hop Pale Ale had just a subtle light sweetness to it that merely supported the hoppy aroma than overpowering it.
Tall Boys Two Hop Pale Ale started off with a Citra forward flavour of lemons and grapefruit before segueing into something more modern with a tropical pineapple and orange flavour profile. The transition was smooth and the flavours played off one another nicely. After letting Tall Boys Two Hop Pale Ale had got a bit warmer, the pine notes came through, but in a smooth and subtle manner, before taking a back seat to the more vibrant flavours and the bitterness. The malts brought just the faintest of sweetness to the flavour, making sure that the hops were the main things going on in the beer. In the end, the tropical and citrus flavours carried on into the aftertaste, before leaving a slightly sticky residue.
