Hinsdale, IL. Bottle poured into my Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Glass. Today I made the hour round trip to Munster Indiana to pick up a case of these. Also grabbed some Alpha King while I was there. The Two Hearted Ale case is a plain brown box stamped with black letters. When I got home and poured a Two Hearted Ale, I remembered why I bothered. This beer is a treat for the eyes, nose, and palate. Pours a hazy light orange, lots of sticky lacing and a low head that quickly dissapates. The aroma, I love the nose on this beer. Floral, hops, citrus. Hits you as soon as you open the bottle. And the flavor, bitter hops, smooth, dry finish. Just enough malt.
I have to say with a refrigerator stocked with Alpha King and Two Hearted Ale, it’s a real difficult choice. I think I’ll find myself going for the Two Hearted. I

This beer has incredible balance. The nose opens with floral heather, and honied malt, with sweet stone fruit hops. The palate is immediately overwhelmed by a rich and crisp bitterness followed by a lingering malt sweetness. A true American classic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Two Hearted is the beer I drink most often. Bottle. Light amber color. Nice head that dissipates moderately quickly. Strong aroma of hops (piney and citric). Light-medium mouth feel. Nice hoppy taste with some grapefruit and nice bitter finish. Not a lot of malt. Easy drinking for an IPA. When I want more malt, I go for DFH 90-Minute instead.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An IPA staple for a good reason. Unmistakable. Light Amber in color and just make me think it would be the best sea fairing bear for the summer. Plenty of hops and the right kinds for me. Maybe Simcoe/Cascade and I dont know what else. I know it’s 3 kinds though. Grapefruit, Orange and a slight citrus tinge is in their.

Had in a sampler. An all around good IPA. Honey, cirtus, floral, herbs, spruce, and hoppy spice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity but not excessively so. Mouthfeel is medium with mild carbonation. Taste of grapefruit with fairly big hops up front. Not as hoppy as I remember or as some other IPA’s. Seems pretty balanced. I was so exited to be able to get this in Illinois a year or so ago and still am, however, I think I remember liking it a bit more then. Still a great beer and one that I’ll continue to go back to. BTW, I was surprised and happy to find this in our local Kroger store, although they had it tagged as a amber lager. WTF?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral, caramel to the nose, pretty much sweetness. Taste is very sweet with a medium body. Very balanced beer with lots of hops but with the sweetness of the malt that balances it perfectly. Lovely.

Fantastic everyday IPA, strong hops bite, grapefruit bitterness indicative of a nicely balanced beer of this style
