Hazy lemonade shade of yellow, bright white head forms with a thicket of nice bright head forming thick. Have no fear the nose is as dank as any really hoppy beer I've ever had, big citric notes, lush Mary Jane, cider like acidity note, herbal/vinous hops growing out of the glass. A bit of floral and garlic in the nose on the backend if you keep digging. Flavor has an absurd amount of herbaceous, garlic, and onion resinous hops, bitter bite of hops hits with each sip, it must pair well with Funions. Light resinous hop oils lay on the palate, bitterness dries out the finish of each sip lighter bodied session IPA in 16 ounce cans. Someone needs to share some Two Hearted Ale in this sized can with the folks on the West Coast.

Pretty light golden brew, slightly hazy, topped by a nice snow white head. Good retention, and very nice lacing.

Great, eclectic hop aroma: citrus and tropical fruit; rind and pith; slight herbal and floral undertones. Slight pale malt biscuit.

Flavor follows: light overall, hop-forward and juicy, with a slightly dank finish. Can still taste a nice presence of pale malt and grain, despite the low ABV and hop prevalence.

Very light and drinkable; lively; minimal sting; medium length wet finish.

This is a really good session IPA. It carries more heft and body than most, while still showcasing plenty of hops.
