Look- one of the best looking beers I have seen. Draught pours a persistent head and beautiful dark amber color.

Smell- not too much floral but citrus and malt predominate.

Taste- heavy hops but not overpowering like other IPAs.

Feel - silky smooth with a crisp finish. The hops don't linger a lot. I like that.

Overall - wonderful but a bit over-hyped. A must try. Honestly I prefer more floral smelling and tasting IPAs but I would definitely buy this again.

Wow. This is my perfect american ipa. Had on draft.

Lots of citrus and floral hop aroma and taste without the typical bitterness, along with a perfect balance of sweet malts and enough bitterness to balance everything out. Low on piney hops, which aren't my favorite anyway. Easy drinking, every time I put I down I went back for another sip. Definitely feels and tastes like a session ale, figured it was closer to 5%. Seems like a kicked up pale ale.

This beer is not overly complex, but everything is in perfect balance, and it's crazy tasty. Can definitely see why this gets so much love.

Freshness is HUGE with this beer. Drinking an old ass bottle of Two Hearted or having a pint from a dirty tap line will not let you understand what this beer can taste like. Beautifully hazy, aromatic, and punchy when fresh.
