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.

This beer pours an extremely light blonde color, slight chill haze. The head is 4 fingers thick with decent lacing. The smell is of tropical fruit and hops, a very good nose. The taste is perfect for the style. It's a nice balance between resinous pineapple and mango hops and a very delicate and crisp malt back bone. the mouth feel is reminiscent of a typical light beer but the hop factor is of a West Coast IPA. I grew up surfing Ponto and bought this beer as a party favor for my groomsman's gift bags (I am getting married at Ponto beach next Year). Little did I know this beer would be amazing! For the style it's the best I've tried. Overall great hop profile, crisp clean malt and a low ABV. I highly recommend this brew.
