4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
$9.49 for a six pack at Total Wine. Wonderful hop aroma fills the room on opening the bottle. Theres no mistaking its going to be a monster IPA. Looks great with a small white head on hazy amber beer. Flavor is much smoother than expected but absolutely loaded with floral and citrus hops. Not overly sweet but has the pale malt sweetness necessary to match the hops, and a delightful bitterness on the end. Smooth and soft and incredibly drinkable. Not even a small fault to be found… Near perfection in an IPA. World class by anybody’s standards.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle pours a cloudy orange color into the tulip glass. An inch of foamy, fluffy head gave way to sticky lacing on the sides of the tulip. A very piney, flowery aroma was balanced nicely by a sweet malt scent. A very drinkable IPA with hints of pine, grass, flowers and some malt. A bitter taste and crisp, clean finish. A nice IPA, but didn’t live up to the hype for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
5L keg can. Whoah nelly, this could be a problem...Pours a hazy amber with a nice thick white head. Floral hops dominate everything in the aroma. Flavor is floral hops, grapefruit, sticky malts, and even more hops. Finishes bitter and crisp, but not overly done. A really well done IPA.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bought at a local grocery store. Pours a hazey gold. Smallish head. Very smelly aroma of hops. Tastes of varied hops, very chewy. A nice example of the style.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep, hazy golden with a generous white head that quickly retreats--very pretty. ’Incredible hop aroma’ and complex hoppy palate, yet so drinkable. In a world of many solid IPAs, this one still stands out as one of the most delicious and distinctive. Very close to a 5.0.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate: 355ml bottle at Steve’s Xmas booze up.
Utterly gorgeous amber gold colour with a stunning white head. Really close to a 5. Outfunkingstanding aroma. I really could sniff at this all day. So so nosable. Incredible hoppage. Grassy, floral, piney, spruce and everything else. A masterclass of an American hop aroma. Words can not do it justice. More show stopping hops in the flavour. Resinous and maybe a little caramel. Light sweetness. Outstanding bitter finish with amazing length. Bloody marvelous beer!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 bottle on 7/4/10. Two Hearted Ale lives up to its high ratings and praise among the craft beer community. It is a very well balanced IPA which delivers on all fronts. Two Hearted pours a deep yellow / light orange with a quarter inch white head. Light citrus hops, sweet caramel malts and big orange peel. Full mouthfeel with plenty of orange, lemon and light grapefruit hop notes followed by a smooth sweet malt backing towards the end. The malts really round everything out well and take this beer to a new level. Sweet and bitter finish. Love it!
bottle. Outstanding IPA from an extraordinary brewery. Solid body and hop character throughout. Pours a deep golden with a thin white head which becomes a thin white lacing. The hops come through on the nose as you take a sip and flow throughout the top and back of your mouth. Soft on the sides of the palate. Average carbonation.... very crisp and easily drinkable. Simply wonderful.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 A cloudy amber/orange color with a great head. The aroma is citrus, hops, and floral notes. The taste is quite hoppy, but not insanely so. A smooth mix of flowery and citrus sweet flavors abound. A distinct IPA flavor that is really well made. I’m not a hophead, but this is a top IPA. A great drink. OK, I need to re-rate this, it is an amazing beer. Batch 9953 thanks to Timbo. Very fresh, huge oranges, peel and the fruit. Awesome. Can from Beermongers. Batch 15361. Lovely, soapy. Bitter. Perfect little 4 pack and can design.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light brown unfiltered beer with a quickly feelting white head. The aroma is filled with yeast and flowers and apples. The hops are there, but are not overpowering. The flavor is a lot more of what I was expecting out of an IPA. Although, it is very nicely balanced so that the hops are not overly bittering or aromatic.

Wow, this is a really really great IPA with an amazing boquet of hops and flowers and otherwise on the attack. Perhaps the best attack of any IPA I"ve ever had. My only con would be is that the beer is a bit thin on the pallete and prefer a beer with more viscosity. This goes right to my top 3 three IPAs of all time.
