3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden beer, with a soapy lace - aroma of woody hops and an almost skunky quality - soft, earthy character - fairly potent hop bitterness (bordering on astringent), that dries the beer out, despite the malt sweetness and buttery quality - a floral, perfume like character manifests late in the aroma and flavor - a decent IPA, but not great.

Nice hoppy aroma, with hints of citrus in it. Pours a hazy bright amber, with a thin dusting of white head on top. Nice crisp flavor, touch of sweetness, but then the citric hops come in. Touch of grassiness. Nice long bitter finish. Hope this one makes it across the state line soon.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of Juart. Pours a hazy amber orange color with a frothy white head that disappears rather quickly, but leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is an orange - grapefruit 5-Alive flavor (sorry for the throwback beverages) with a little bit of floral. The taste is much more floral than citrus. It is what I imagine roses taste like. Some brown sugar sweetness with a little bitterness, but not cloying until after the taste has passed. It hangs around in the back of the throat. A medium body.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very murky orange pour with small off white head, good amount of sediment. Aroma is full of citrus hops with notes of peacha nd mango. A real pleasure to sniff at this one. The flavor follows sute with the addition of a mild piney bitterness and a moderate malty sweetness. This is an excellent IPA and I prefer it to their double, which I found to be a bit out of balance. Very nice IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a hazy orange with heavy sediment.
Aroma is citrus and floral hops with underlying caramel malt.
Flavour is suprisingly malty, again caramel and toasty with floral and lemon hop.
Pretty good, but not great.
I think Two Hearted has spoiled IPA’s for me!! Or just spoiled me....

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden with a small head that dissipates fairly quickly into a swirl of foam on top. Not much lacing on this one but definitely a lot of stuff floating around in there! Smell is dominated by floral hops with oranges and lemon zest. Slight bready malt aroma and resin in there as well. First taste is the bready malt which is immediately overtaken by the light lemony floral hop taste. The finish is a slight pine bitterness, but the overall taste is very subtle and light. Mouthfeel is fairly light with moderate carbonation. Crisp and dry finish. The light nature of this one makes it very drinkable, especially on a hot afternoon. I would love to dry the double and compare.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finally gettin a chance to try thisone thanks to Eithcubes. Cloudy orange dull color. Decent aroma, flavor, and body for a straight ipa. C-hop aromas. Sweet flavor and bitter hop finish. Citrus and pine smells. Flavor is mostly malt and sweet with not a ton of hop presence until the finish. Otherwise very enjoyable.

Bottle. Rich sweet aroma. Appears dark, murky copper with a thin off-white head. Very sweet taste upfront, finishes with a full bitterness. Citrus notes but overly sweet. Medium bodied and oily in the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Exactly what I was looking for in an IPA. Pours a vibrant orange colour with a large beige head. Aroma is strong of fresh hops, pine and generous amount of grapefruit. Taste is firm, astringent and hoppy.
