12oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass.

Two Hearted Ale poured a cloudy, slightly too pale amber with a creamy two-finger head that left sporadic sticky lace.

The smell and taste are also too pale; undistinguished yet easy to drink, with a touch of lemon/grapefruit that lingers a bit acidy, like the rind.

Two Hearted Ale is a good, but not great, IPA that leaves a less than pleasant after-smell and after-taste, similar to what smacks the palate after biting into an orange peel to get it started.

So, I have had this before but after a few glasses of wine before dinner, so I want a clean palate to test it. I was a little drunk when having it, so not sure, so here comes a sober review with a clean palate.

WOW, I love this one. Very sweet aroma, sweet malts, alcohol very well hidden.

Sweet orange, sweet peach, taste. Excellent, excellent beer. Flavors are very different then a traditional IPA. Unique. You can tell it is not a West Coast IPA, and as much as I love those, this is awesome and different in it's own way.

World class IPA.
