look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: Pours a clear, light golden color with a nice four-finger head which has decent retention and lacing.
S: The smell is of spicy hops, not too heavy but apparent and the focus. The beer has a light grapey scent too along with some bread characteristics. It smells like an IPA but isn't in your face like some.
T: Taste is citrusy and winey, and a bit spicy like pepper. The alcohol is present in the mix but not strong, the hop bitterness comes into play late and lingers on the tongue. A good mild balance of all the flavors.
M: Mouthfeel is light, a tad oily but not heavy. Lots of carbonation, which gives a nice feel. The carbonation is heavier than other IPAs but gives a nice contrast to the smooth flavors.
D: Drinkability is good. I could drink a few of these, for the style of beer and the alcohol content the mix is nice and easy to drink.

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.
