look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Light gold body with micro particles dancing around busily, giving it a haze. Very well carbonated, as I got to preview the taste from the head running over. Soon recedes to a thin white head with some life to it.
Biscuity grapefruit smell. Very intertwined marriage of the two, where there is a sweet grainy hoppiness that keeps the scent from getting rindy (yes, I'm aware some of these words are not in Websters). Fresh smelling with some delicate apricot.
Same grapefruit, same sweet grain per the smell. Just a little different than many IPAs in that the balance is supreme. Another fine example of a highly-hopped beer that never gets extremely bitter just for the sake of it (not that there is anything wrong with that). Halfway down, the alcohol joins the taste party and fits right in.
This one is deceptive. For starters, it is lighter in color, has a soft mouthfeel, and is carried by a less than than medium body. Then there is the fresh sweetness like somebody added an oz of Centennial to grandma's freshly baked white bread. Oh, and it is twice as strong as your garden-variety light macros. More than one friend of mine has fallen prey to the Two Hearted. Watch out for it on tap because it could become the Two Livered.
The kind of beer that could get warm and flat and you will still happily drink it.
