Fresh bottle from the brewery store.
Pours a nice clear, rich gold topped by an rocky head. Gorgeous lacing and retention.
Pine and grapefruit dominate the aroma, with tangerine and caramel in the background. Quite restrained for an IPA though I must say.
C-hop flavor dominates, lots of grapefruit and pine, balanced against a nice sweet pale malt and toffee. And that's it. Lots of citrusy hops balanced against caramel malt. But expertly balanced. Simple. Uncomplicated. Satisfying. Which is just how I liked my American IPAs.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, very satisfying.
Just a topnotch IPA, all the way. Not sure I get what about it is "two hearted" or how that ties into the piscine motif of the label though. A little weak in the aroma as compared to my top favorites in the style, but otherwise fantastic!

4.44/5 rDev +4%

Poured from the 16oz. can into a glass.
Pours a nice, hazy straw color with a long-lasting one-finger head that leaves some lacy foam trailing down the glass as the beer disappears.
The aroma is mostly sweet citrus.
My tongue is hit with big citrus flavors up front - grapefruit, a little orange as well and then comes a wave of piney resins and a zingy, bubbly finish.
The mouthfeel is medium, and slightly sticky and well carbed.
Overall, just an outstanding IPA not normally available to me (darn).
