I had two hearted first but find them very comparable. I'l give the crown to two hearted since it's $3 cheaper.

Smell the HOPPS right away. The lemon is first to come out with the hopps. Take another sipp and enjoy peach & mango! INCREDIBLE!

11/04/13 From bottle at home. Very mellow for a renowned IPA. By the power of suggestion (reading the company blurb) I detect hints of mango, peach & faint citrus which all add up to a well thought out blend. Deserves the rep.
