Can't really offer anything new on this beer, but it deserves more than a simple 'had'. Clear, bright orange, slightly off white head and great lacing. Smell and taste both full of citrus and tropical fruit. Not overly fruity or sweet, but the tropical fruit aspect of this beer is amazing. Medium body with a creaminess that makes it very easy to drink.

Overall a fantastic beer, and the fact that it's so widely available makes it even better.

Bottle poured into a shaker pint, dated 1/22/13. Thanks to kangarooAdam59 for the beer, really appreciate it dood.

A: Honey, orange gold. The head was egg shell colored and about two fingers, really solid retention and nice lace rings left on the glass.

S: Immediately reminded me of Racer 5. Grapefruit pith, orange, apricots, sweeter tropical fruits, a bit floral, honey, sweet caramel malt.

T: Again, similar to Racer 5. Grapefruit pith, orange rind, tangerines, apricots, sweeter hop fruits, lot of peach, touch of malt sweetness, very well balanced and very easily drinkable given the modest 7% abv. Finished relatively dry, but not bone dry like some IPA's.

M: Light end of medium but very smooth, soft and a touch creamy. Started off crsip and as I drank, it got smoother.

O: Really been jonsin' to try this here brew. I was going in with pretty high expectations and I am very pleased. I wish we got Bell's here in MA. Mid-West IPA at its finest.

A real classic, first received in a trade a few years ago, then bottles bought at AJ's Beer Warehouse. This reviews concerns Two Hearted on tap at Acme Beer and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy glowing orange yellow. 1 inch head with great lacing.

A big trifecta of great hop aromas- pine, citrus, floral.

The tastes follows similarly, and successfully. Very floral up front, with some sweet citrus flavors mixed with bitter pine notes. The bitterness is lingering but not over-powering. Not much noticeable malt flavor. One of the freshest hop expressions on the market.

Light, crisp mouthfeel, light-to-medium body. Insanely drinkable.

So happy this cult classic has hit our market here in Western NY. I could drink this all day and be happy.
