So in my glass is the famous Two Hearted IPA. It looks good, potent dark sun yellow, lightly hazy, with a great very foamy and rocky white head, highly carbonated in appearance. Acute citrusy C-hops nose, very flowery, sweet, sour, hints at lemon pie, lilac (orval anyone?), grapefruit, grass. Solid toasty/cookie malt attack early like a good pils, quickly complemented by the direct floral and citrusy hops. Great flavor development for an IPA, but you know where they're from, hophead's neck of the wood and always lacking a touch of "multidimensionality". Tremendous velvety texture, less carbonated than anticipated. Clean and long oily bitter finish. Quite good, but top 100 in the world? I think not. Maybe a top 10 IPA though.

Look: Cloudy orange-amber with a decent white head.

Smell: Strong piney hop scent backed by a little citrus and an umami malt scent.

Taste: Starts with a subtle pine flavor, followed by bitter malt. The bitterness is much more subdued than a typical IPA.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick, small amount of carbonation.

Overall: While perfectly drinkable, I'm still not an IPA fan.

Picked-up a twelve-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twenty dollars. My second brew from these guys, who just started distribution in these parts. Very solid brew, a nice change of pace from all the "NEIPAs", would buy again.

Pours to a generous white head that lasts and laces. Hazy gold copper. Aroma is sweet crystal malts, fruity yeast esters and piney, fruity hops. Flavor is balanced with crisp, biscuity malts and still decently hoppy. Mouthfeel is medium. This is what an IPA should be. Hop forward but with a substantial malt contribution.
