Thanks for the awesome extra LaChupacabra!

Pours light gold with white head. Smell is fruity, bright hops, clean and inviting. Jenna said it smells like raspberry sauce. go figure... Taste is crisp, hoppy, fruity and refreshing with a citrus and earthiness. Medium body and nice carbonation. Refreshing and flavorful without a heavy bitterness or overly syrupy mouthfeel to it. Very nice session IPA.

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.
