Poured into a pint glass, this is a nice looking beer. Impressive inch-tall head, frothy, nearly white. Decent retention, and nice patchy lacing. The body of the beer is a little light, but not out of the ordinary for an IPA.
The smell is where Two Hearted Ale shines, in my opinion. It's very light and floating. Floral, with a decent amount of citrusy hops and a light malt background. Very enticing.
The taste, while good is just not what you come to hope for after having taken in the smell. It's a good, full flavor. Not terribly hoppy for an IPA, and in fact hop bitterness has taken on a bit of a secondary role, allowing some fruity, malt flavors to come out. The mouthfeel is nothing to get excited over. Lightly carbonated and a bit thin. Just enough to tickle the taste buds.
All in all, I really liked this IPA. It's a nice alternative to your usual hop bomb. Very drinkable. If only they could get the taste to live up to the smell... Then I'd have something to really talk about!
