We all know that two hearted is one of the benchmarks against which other American ipas are judged and for good reason. It is super smooth, clean, and simple. This ale Pours a gorgeous hazy Orange color with a medium head that dissipates to a lasting lacing. The aroma is pure citrus with notes of grass and very fresh on the nose. It Sips smooth but a little chewy due to the beers unfiltered quality. The flavor is bitter on the front end and malty on the rear. It is very fresh and refreshing and balanced. This is an excellent example of an American ipa. It stands along side of 60 Minute, Centennial, and Stone as dome of the finest ipas produced today. Grab a bottle and enjoy....I may even open another.
