A: Pours a classic IPA orange and it is hazy. Off white head that leaves really nice lacing and settles to form a thin, even cap atop the beer.
S: This beer smells quite floral and citrusy. You can really smell the malt body on this one.
T: Balance is the key word here. There is a perfect amount of hop bitterness across the palate, but it is not overwhelming due to the beefy malt load. The malts taste bready, buiscuity, and almost buttery. The hops are very floral, a bit of pine, and a nice dose of citrus. A really fantastic hop blend. It finishes slightly dry and with lemon citrus left on the tongue.
M: Medium with solid carbonation. Very smooth.
This is a fantastic beer, no doubt about it. I've had it plenty of times, and I still keep coming back to it. People refer to this as Hopslam's younger brother, but to be honest, I think Hopslam is a completely different animal, and I love both equally.

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.
