3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [Thanks to my Secret Santa]
Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smallish bubbly/creamy white head. Good lacing. Aroma is brilliant, lots of hops. Lemons, grapefruit, pine, lavender, flowers and a little crystal-maltiness behind it. Low carbonation. Flavour is mildly bitter at first, then expands with a well-balanced malty base of sweetness, then finishes medium dry with a good powerful hop addition. Grapefruit hops are most apparent, so are lemony and grassy hops.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 Rerate 10/21/03: After getting a sixer of Two Hearted this year, I have to bump the score up. This really is a top of the line IPA. 09/29/02 (3.8):There's hops it that there beer! This was a 'guest tap' at Barley's brewpub here in Columbus, and although I usually find it wrong to try beers outside of the brewpub where I am drinking, I'm glad I made an exception here. Cloudy orange color with a thin head. Strong hoppy, floral aroma. Hops dominate the flavor as well, bordering on the extreme. This beer will definitely keep your attention. Take a whiff of one of these during a boring meeting and you'll wake right up. You'll probably get fired but you'll be awake.
