Not your beginners IPA. It looks amazing with a rich head and amber coloring. The smell is divine with very rich floral scents bursting out. The taste is very strong with intense citrus flavor. Pretty bitter but still immensely drinkable. Every beer drinker should have a 6 pack of this available at all times.

Such a classic. Always dependable, always solid. This IPA defines the type. A great blend of west coast/east coast. If you've never had it, get it.

When in doubt, I can always trust Two Hearted. I love this beer, near and dear to my heart. Americana and nostalgia in a bottle, one of the finest crafted IPAs ever. Never dissspoints and Im down with the cans.

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Packaged on 03/06/2017.

L- Thick soapy white colored head that stands 1 finger tall,with very good retention and sticky lacing.Light orange colored body with low clarity,and distorted light showing through the glass.Low amount of carbonation,high amount of sediment.

S- On the nose I get tons of citrus and tropical fruit hops (orange and mango),pine hops,and some faint hints of sweet breaded malt notes.Fruity hops definitely steal the show.Floral hop presence as well.

T- On the palate I get bitter pine hops and grapefruit up front,tropical and citrus fruit hops in the middle,and some sweat breaded malts balanced by pine hops on the back end.Very well balanced IPA.

F- The mouth feel is bordering on thin and medium,with a silky texture.Moderate amount of oxidation on the tongue with a smooth finish.

O- This is probably one of the best IPA's I have tried,that is available in Florida.Very well balanced with a beautiful hop presence.This is about as close to a "juice bomb" as you get in Florida.I could drink this beer all year round.I highly recommend this brew if you are a hop head,and an IPA lover.

This is a go to IPA for the smooth mouth feel and finish. Perfect hoppiness and citrus flavors.

After a day of tough physical labor I spotted the fish and thought to give it a try. I was not disappointed it was a good beer made by good old American beer makers . Without a lot of malarkey, give it a try.

Hazy orange color, frothy lingering white head. Not much of any aromas. Generic hop profile that quickly fades. Had on tap but maybe it wasn't very fresh.

Did I miss something? This was completely bland. No aroma no taste. I regret ordering this at the bar.
