2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to Nuts, on tap at Vintage Estates. Ubiquitous pale yellow american beer appearance. The smell is special, piny or heavy cannabis cola flowers aroma. Never smelled anything like this. Creamy alabaster white blanket for a head that hangs for a while. Very hoppy yet not overpowering bitter. Can appreciate this even though IPA is not of my liking. Definitely one of the better tasting IPA Iíve had. Medium low carbonation. Finish is lingering medicinal preservative qualities that linger for a medium amount of time.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 12oz bottle, $1.49. Aroma is light citrus, orange with some light hopps tossed in. Appearance is hazy light yellow/amber with an average frothy, mostly diminishing, off-white head that left a fair lace. Flavor was kind of weak; Lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is light to medium bodied and watery flat. My brother likes it and he isnít into tasting beer so itís probably a good one for n00bz but I found it over rated. Victory hopdevil is more of what Iím looking for in an IPA.

Had on draft at local bar. Poured a cloudy amber color...Smelled like grapefruit. I am not a fan of IPAís but found this one quite drinkable. Taste was citrus, malts, and flowers...Decent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a beer that could convert a lot of people over to IPAs. Pours a lightly cloudy amber with a large, frothy, lasting head that marks its descent as you enjoy its hoppy goodness. The aroma is a pleasant blend of citrus and flowers, and the palate is medium-bodied and slick with a nice bitter finish. The flavor is actually pretty sweet at the start (for an IPA), but the floral finish creates a very satisfying and balanced beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Draft at St. Stephenís with dallas. Pours a golden body with small white head, nice lacing. Aroma is awesome pine hops, and some citrus notes. Mouthfeel is medium, flavor is same as aroma.
REVISIT 2014: Bottle on several occassions with Pat. Bells Two Hearted seems to have become a staple of the Philadelphia beer scene in the sense that it was one of the few beers with wide distribution that also moves fast enough to allow for consistently fresh bottles. Pours a light golden body with thick white head. Aroma is bitter lemon grass, crisp pale malt and bitter fruity hop. Mouthfeel is carbonated, crisp and light; notes of grass, pale malt, light sweetness and delicate spice. Reliable and sessionable.

Golden body and hazy. Nice medium sized head with aroma of pine hops and floral malts. Starts hoppy and then balances with malts before finishing with a dry note that makes you come back for more. A nice savory beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2009 Pours sorta hazy golden, forming a white foamy head. Aroma of crisp pines, wet forest hops, and lovely malts. Flavor is of sweet malted floral hops. Very well balanced. A tinge of grapefruit going there too. Pretty good IPA, not overwhelming. Not very pungent as I was hoping for. Would have gotten higher point from me, not up there with Hop Devil or Thunderhead, but not too bad either. Easily sessionable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle into a pint glass, hazy yellow with a thin head. Aroma was of citrus and orange peel. The flavor was complex with notes of orange peel, citrus, lime and floral hops. Bitter on the finish. Well carbonated. IPAís really arenít my thing, but this is well done. It kind of grows on you.
