Poured a 12oz ale into one of my favorite pint ale glasses.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a very thick creamy white head. Head holds up well for several minutes.

S: Nice floral scent with citrus notes as well. Good overall nose.

T: Good balance between the citrus hop bite and a malty backbone. Did I say balanced? Refreshing too. Good summer beer. I like the slightly dry aftertaste.

M: Slightly syrupy but enough carbonation to keep it keep it an easy drinker.

D: Good drinkable beer with an alcohol content that isn't overpowering. This is one that you can enjoy several without overdoing it. I like that it isn't too sweet and has a dry finish too.

Summary: Good solid IPA. One that I will buy again. Would also satisfy those that don't like really bitter ales. Easy to like!

12oz bottle. Dated 9/8/11

Two Hearted pours an orange/amber color. Two fingers of white foam recede leaving minimal lacing and a thin coaster which lingers atop the beer. The nose is citrus and floral hops. Taste is orange rind and pale malt. Mild bitterness and and bread give way to a sweet citrusy finish. The beer is medium bodied with creamy texture. A nice take on the style by Bells.
