3.68/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Crystal clear straw in color, regular retention, nice lacing.

Nose: There is just loads of citrus and papaya, pineapple, and mangoes! I had forgotten that this is how an IA should smell.

Taste: Dry, hoppy bite with very minimal malt character. Crisp and refreshing with a medicinal aftertaste.

Notes: With all of the double, triple, and imperial-on-cocaine IPA's out there, this was a very refreshing reminder of why we like IPA's in the first place!

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.
