From bottle, a nice golden color. White colored head a bit weak but persistent and frothy. Decent lacing.
Aroma rich, strong, malty, with hops and a hint of citrus. Can't wait to dive in!
Initial taste very pleasing and strong. Rich hops but not overly bitter. Leaves a somewhat unique aftertaste of rich sweet malt rather than strong bitter hops like I'm used to in an AIPA --somewhat of a surprise, yet still very refreshing. A lingering citrus background as well. Overall, an eclectic and well balanced flavor!
Mouthfeel very good. Crisp yet very light carbonation. Actually, about right to balance the rich malt flavor.
Drinkability very good. Goes down easy and smooth with good viscosity for this style.
Overall, this AIPA is a bit off-flavor as the style goes. Hops don't linger long and they are not particularly bitter. I prefer a much stronger bitter-tone in an AIPA. Still, this beer is rich and full of flavor.

Two Hearted Ale fills a Blue Point snifter with hazy amber (SRM 6-8) while occasional columns of tiny bubbles add to the ¼ inch, pale orange, creamy head that quickly dissipates.
The aroma is dominated by apricot, followed by fresh orange and clear, but minimal, grapefruit and floral notes.
This offering is quite bitter up front with an equal balance of citrus flavors. Crisp and clean, with a light apricot finish that lingers. Slight warming ushers in the grapefruit flavors.
The medium body and dry finish accentuates a rough texture and light prickly carbonation.
Two Hearted Ale clearly deserves its reputation. One can easily imagine how a fresher example would be exquisite. Three months from bottling, this one still delivers while unwinding after a long day.
