I’d be lying if I said the Hemingway tie in didn’t put me in this beer’s corner before even tasting it - but it helps that it’s an amazing beer too. On tap @ Minnosa, MSP. Pours cloudy golden with an orange tint and medium thin slightly oily head. Aroma is big hops: citrus dominates, with pine and earthy notes following. Taste is punchy hop-forward and crisp. The hops really jump out much more on tap as I tried a bottle just yesterday. Hops are super fresh: citrusy, floral, and earthy. Malts are smart enough to stay out of the way and let the hops shine here. Exactly what an IPA should be.

16 oz can. Nice balanced hops and malt. Good solid sour finish. Mild carbonation. Above average apa. Hiledd (125) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Clear honey brown color. Sweet malty flavor with honey, biscuit, hint of pine flavor. Floral aroma, very light.

Two Hearted pours out of the can a light copper with creamy white, frothy head. Aromatics are initially bready with raisins and some floral notes hitting as well. Light to medium mouthfeel gives way to an abruptly sweet IPA. The bitterness subtlety arrives and lingers after the finish. Really well balanced, some earthy hop flavor in there too. Hype is met. Well done.

Great taste with just the right touch of hops and fruitiness. I would definitely have this one again!

Advertised as an Ale, but it is an IPA. I'm not very fond of hoppy beers. Carmel color.

12 oz bottle from backlog during a Belgium trip. Deep golden with white head. Aroma and taste are hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, fruit, bready malt, caramel and earthy notes. balloonbuffoon (386) - - JUL 25, 2017
Draft pint to a pint glass (also I’ve had from bottle and can). This is about as perfect as an American IPA can get. Pale in color with decent head retention, and possesses a sweetly-bitter, juicy floral aroma. Feel is a bit slick, moderately bitter - held in check by a supportive malt sweetness. Tangerine is main flavor, and the palate carries it well. I don’t believe in seeking out IPAs, because compared to others in quality (IMO) the difference is negligible.
