Nice hazy orange with quick fading white head. Aroma is piny with grapefruit. Taste is same, only thinly so, and disappointing and weak. Mouthfeel is rather fizzy and detracts from hop taste. Not sure what all the raving is about. $3/12oz lweiberg (139) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Excellent IPA, although not hoppy as insanity or anything. Wicked sick label, eh? I wonder what the fish would think you if you forced him to swim in a vat of Two Hearted Ale. He’d probably think, "Nobody’s ever died like I’m about to die within 72 hours." gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Pours a hazy copper color with monstrous lacing, carbonation and head. Aroma is very hoppy. Taste is hoppy as well but it finishes really smooth with little aftertaste which is surprising for an IPA. Good brew! joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2007

[386-20070630] Tap @ Winking Lizard (Cleveland, OH). Hoppy citrus grapefruit aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head and some lacing. Flavour introduces more hoppy citrus, though less grapefruit and more naval orange. Medium body. Quite nice. lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 pours a somewhat cloudy dark yellow gold with a 1.5 finger fluffy white head. aroma is a powerful hop aroma with some malt and grapefruit, a touch of melon, and a touch of orange characteristics. has a medium to full body with good lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger. has a nice smooth dry hop aftertaste and a touch of pine. the hops really do linger a bit afterwards and feels a little slick in the mouth. an AWSOME ipa one of the best!! i would pick this up by the case along with three floyds alpha king. hopefully bells comes back to Illinois very very soon!!!
re-rate awsome in a mini keg!! porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 9, 2007
(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>shigadeyo, thanks Craig!) Plenty of hops...Pours cloudy orangish gold with a tall frothy, pillowy white head. Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, as well as some caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel medium-full, lightly pebbly. Big foamy rings of lacing. Flavor of grapefruit and pine, more towards grapefruit, with some caramel underneath esp. as it warms. Medium-heavy bitterness through palate from fore through finish. aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2007
The color was a golden with orange hues. The head was thin, fizzy, white, and laced a little. The flavor was apricot and hoppy, but not as bitter as expected. The palate was perfectly carbonated and medium bodied. The finish was hopps. JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Rerate: Had to rerate this one...its seriously one of the absolute best IPA’s in the world. It is blended so well, the complexity, the smoothness, the layers of malt that fold in your mouth. Great aromas that you can smell from 5 feet away. Just a perfect blend! Everytime I have it, I expect the best, and it delivers everytime...almost better every time.
Pours great cloudy burnt orange with great lacing and nice long lasting off white head. Extreme citrus notes on smelling and tasting. Great bright flavor of hops, sooo citrusy. Bitterness is lacking a little on the backend, but leaves a great refreshing clean taste afterwords. The malt character gets exposed, with a great "unique" round semi sweet taste, just as the hops start doing the work. Great, Great brew
